SHU needs a stronger non-smoking policy

Here at Seton Hall, I never really noticed a smoking problem until this year. It began in November when it started getting cold outside and all the smokers started retreating to underneath the "hood" of Xavier Hall. Each time I walked towards my dorm and underneath the tower, the only thing I could smell was the smoke coming from the half dozen cigarettes being smoked at any given time.


SGA needs to make guest swipes a priority

Since last spring, students have been unable to swipe guests as they please in the Caf. It had been determined that this was a minor programming glitch that was allowing students to swipe multiple meals freely – but it was quickly taken away and, with its passing, a strictly enforced meal plan policy fell into place. Students who pay for a meal plan are only allowed a certain allocation of guest swipes now – forget trying to swipe in a friend.


Take-out needs to become an option for students on-the-go

Has this ever happened to you? You have fifteen minutes in between classes, and you're starving. So you swipe into the dining hall using your meal plan and quickly put together a sandwich. As you go to leave the dining hall, you're told that you can't leave with it. You have to go sit down and eat it there. So much for convenience.


New tuition discount seems unfair to current students

The University announced Wednesday that it would be matching the in-state tuition of Rutgers University for qualified incoming freshman. Highly qualified incoming freshman who meet certain criteria in academics, as well as SAT or ACT scores are subject to steep discounts in tuition for their eight semesters at Seton Hall. In total, the University announced the discount would amount to approximately $21,336.


The University should not let the memory of Jessica Moore be forgotten

Exactly one year ago this coming Sunday, tragedy struck our community. When Jessica Anne Moore passed away, it no doubt brought this small campus together. The University held a beautiful prayer vigil that weekend, a campus-wide moment of silence, and the University bused those who were close to Moore to Virginia for her funeral. After the vigil, I even remember administrators who I had never met before coming up to me and other Setonian editors asking how we were doing.


Public Safety should continue to notify students of crimes

Seton Hall's Department of Public Safety and Security has an obligation to do whatever it may in order to increase the safety of individual students in the area around the South Orange campus, especially when it has knowledge of nearby incidents of crime. This paper has long advocated for the notification of students when these incidents occur.


Involvement Fair offers opportunities for students to succeed on-campus

In the four or more years that many of us will spend at this University, or in any university for that matter, we will continuously be given advice. This advice will come from our families, friends, professors and from people from all different walks of life. We will be told to make friends, to study hard, and almost always, most importantly, be told to get involved.


Finding my niche: Something for everyone at the Involvement Fair

When I began my career at Seton Hall three long years ago, all of my professors, and the upperclassmen I met kept stressing the importance of getting involved on-campus. As a semi-confused journalism major not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with my eventual degree, I took the advice and promised myself that I would hit the ground running when the opportunity presented itself.


Extracirricular activities central to making memories in college

As syllabus week ends and the real work begins, many students may find themselves surrendering to the monotony: go to class, do your homework, cram for the midterm, try to complete all the readings and finish the paper at the last minute. School is hard, sometimes tedious, and does not always leave space for a student to put forth a personal, creative effort. But let's face it: when looking back on your four (or more) years in college, will you remember every single class, or the memories you made when you were showing SHU the real you?
