Real-world reality check hits seniors before senioritis

As I ventured on campus to be­gin my 'last first day' of college, a range of emotions fell over me. Although I was excited that I was finally a senior and considered the big dog on campus, I also felt scared thinking about the near fu­ture. In just over nine months, it will be time for me to step out of the utopia that I call college and enter into the real world.

As a freshman in a sea of 1,600, growing up is hard to do

That mystical moment the near future held all summer, the one I waited patiently and impatiently for was finally here. It was move-in day, Aug. 23. I had my sights set on this date since the moment I received that acceptance letter, when the next chapter of my life would finally begin.

Dunkin' Donuts gives new energy, great alternative

As the school year begins, excitement over the new addition to campus is certainly unavoidable. Dunkin' Donuts has arrived and has already been a hit for students as well as faculty. The line has almost constantly been out the door and wrapped around the library at any given hour. The new question that everyone is asking on campus seems to be "Have you grabbed a snack from the new Dunkin'?"

A Pirate's life for me' was always meant to be

Two days after I sent in my ap­plication to Seton Hall I turned on the television to watch the news af­ter a long day at school and the top news story was about a man who had driven on to this campus, shot him­self in his car, and walked into a resi­dence hall, bleeding at the stomach from the wound.

Theatre Council should continue to elect its e-board

As was reported on page one of The Setonian this week, the Theatre Council shake up has many of its members up in arms. The proposed leader­ship change could potentially remove the Theatre Council student executive board, giving sole say over the operation of the Theater Council to one individual and the faculty.

Dreams really do come true at SHU

Since day one at Seton Hall, the one thing we learned is to be mindful of everything that's been given to us, and to pay it forward. The countless hours of community service that we did freshman year and beyond instilled that in us.

Student journalism still alive and well

It is no secret that the journalism profession has constantly evolved over the past few decades. What was once dominated by personalities such as Edward R. Murrow or Walter Kronkite has now taken many forms. From professionals to citizen journalists to student journalists, the practice of journalism is continuing to grow, yet many fear it has ceased to prosper.

An old college major dilemma: For love or money?

Is the choice of college major solely made out of passion for a person's particular course of study? Or, has the single biggest decision at the beginning of every student's college career become littered with ambiguity by the gravities of society's economic pressures to make a certain base salary right after graduation?

How my safety school changed my life

I have to admit, Se­ton Hall was not my first choice. In fact, it was my safety school, and last on the list of schools I ever wanted to attend. I'm not sure why I drastically changed my mind to en­roll, but I'm glad I did.

Criminals' lessons are invaluable to students

For several years, criminals who have developed good prison records have been given the opportu­nity to come to Seton Hall and speak to students in criminal justice classes. While some may undoubt­edly feel somewhat uneasy at the idea of having convicted criminals on campus, it is important to point out the invaluable lessons that can be gener­ated from this kind of interaction.

Forget 'What If?' and enjoy the ride

What if? Two words, and that's it. That's all it takes to stop me in my tracks and make me think. But that's life. It's full of questions that I can't answer; that no one will ever be able to answer. What if I decided to play basketball rather than volleyball in college? What if I didn't choose Seton Hall? What if I stayed a graphic design major? What if I wasn't a sports copy edi­tor for The Setonian?

Hazard Zet Forward: Time to face the unknown

It's that time of year, when everyone finds themselves looking back. Seniors, in particular, are probably look­ing back on the past four (or more) years and wondering where the time went. Four years ago, I was a shy, im­pressionable freshman who didn't drink coffee or even know who Lady Gaga was. (I know - Gaga has been on the mainstream music scene for less than four years. Don't you feel old now?)

SHU's face lift will better campus life

As reported on the front page of The Setonian this week, the University is planning campus-wide renovations that would improve on-campus liv­ing and recreation services. Among these planned improvements are the anticipated addition of a Dunkin' Donuts in Walsh Library and massive im­provements to the Richie Regan Athletic Center.
