Gov. Christie wrong decision for commencement speaker

Asking Gov. Christie to speak at a university commencement exercise is a bit like inviting Charlie Sheen to speak at an AA convention. You just don't do it. Not when the choice of commencement speaker is always a statement about what a university values.


Time as editor worth the trouble

In the past two years, I've been called everything from an idiot to Rush Limbaugh to, perhaps most offensive of all, a Nickleback sympathizer. Fellow students, (former) friends and even complete strangers have excoriated me in print, message boards and personal emails, all because of a 450-500 word review of a CD.


Remembering my mother, who helped me choose the Hall

February 2007. I'm an eager senior in high school who recently got accepted to Seton Hall University. Being that I'm from Florida and had never stepped foot in the state of New Jersey, we scheduled a trip up north to check it out. I first learned of Seton Hall at a college fair in Tampa that I attended when I was a high school sophomore. My family went mostly for my older brother who was a junior at the time, but I tagged along.


And the show continues on

As I was watching the final performance of the play I recently directed for Theatre Council, for the first time, I was able to watch and enjoy without any anxiety. It was because it was the end, the last show.


Shutter Orange: Village needs to better protect citizens

Over and over again this school year, students have been reminded to walk in pairs in South Orange. Despite the quaint locale of South Orange Avenue and the harmless appearance of its quiet side streets, by now we all recognize, or should recognize, that South Orange is a dangerous place to meander, especially at night.


Garden deserves respect, will benefit SHU community

Seton Hall's decision to partner with Gourmet Dining Services and found a sustainable garden between Xavier Hall and the Caf is a welcome way for the University to promote greater environmental stewardship. The Setonian hopes students will respect the new garden and refrain from vandalizing it.


Customer service is dead

I have worked in various retail jobs part-time for the past four years, and it has always been my experience that happy customers are good customers. So I try my best to be friendly and courteous towards them. Customers are not only essentially the source of my paycheck, but they are also human beings. They have mood swings and bad days, the same as I do.


University fees for off-campus housing options are excessive

This year, Housing and Residence Life announced that priority points would become even more competitive, with the point requirements rising for both room retention and roommate pull-in. On-campus living has therefore become more competitive, with a limited number of spaces in prime residence halls such as Xavier or Cabrini. Many students may find themselves turning to off-campus options, but they likely will not find any Seton Hall affiliated, unless they are willing to pay an unnecessary high price.


Bitettes and Pieces: Maintain dignity or get rich?

Some cast members of the Jersey Shore are said to make $30,000 an episode for season three of the show. This is not including the extra cash they collect for club appearances, Pauly D's makes up to $80,000 a week for his DJ work according to New York Post, or the products they put their name behind.
