One of the biggest questions surrounding the search for a new Athletic Director was how well he will be able to work with first year men's basketball coach Kevin Willard. With the appointment of Patrick Lyons as Seton Hall's new Athletic Director, there will be no conflict between the two.
When I received my e-bill for the Spring 2011 semester, it was similar to all the e-bills I've received during my time here at Seton Hall: reduced tuition due to a Transfer Scholarship I had been offered upon my acceptance here in November of 2008. I paid my e-bill, excited that it would be the last time I'd be coughing up a large amount of money for education (undergraduate anyway…).
As of late, it seems like there is one commonality that links together most Seton Hall students: they love to complain.
The Setonian hopes the Student Organization Advisory Council will approve the petition of students and allow the creation of Seton Hall International Programs, an organization devoted to encouraging and aiding students who decide to study abroad.
February is Public Service Month, an annual tradition at Seton Hall, sponsored by the Career Center. With all we are lucky to have, as college students, it is important that we remember to give back to our communities.
A cornerstone of every Super Bowl Sunday is the entertainment provided during the breaks in play. In years such as this, when I do not particularly care who wins, I tend to watch the Super Bowl more for the commercials and halftime shows.
As the first week of the spring semester has come to an end and the self-introductions and syllabi reviews have passed, I noticed despite what course it may be, the main focus seems to be greatly placed on the usage of the internet and how technology is changing everything we do (not that this is new information).
When students woke up on Tuesday morning, freezing rain had coated the Seton Hall campus and South Orange in ice. The University proceeded to hold classes despite slick walkways on campus and icy roads.
With the third week of the Spring semester in full swing, students are buckling down and getting to work on their incoming assignments. Or they should be, at least.
In recent years, student sections around the country have begun to become household names. Whether you're a part of the "Cameron Crazies" at Duke or the "Oakland Zoo" in Pittsburgh, visiting teams have begun to fear road games because of student sections.
Before Tuesday night's monumental upset of Syracuse, hearing Pirates fans complain about first year men's basketball head coach Kevin Willard was as common as finding Bobby Gonzalez browsing through the men's handbag section of a department store.
The first full week of the semester is here once again. A big chapter or milestone comes along in life and most people make certain goals for these starting points. Starting to work out more, eat healthier; do better in school or work. I am certainly guilty of making these goals or end results of a new time in my life. But I was thinking this morning what is it that makes us find these new chapters as moments to start bettering ourselves. And what is our society's constant need to better ourselves and where does it stem from?
In The Setonian's front page story this week, "Students get plastered," six residents of Serra Hall found themselves sealed into their suite.
Dear Sir or Madam,
The Setonian would like to congratulate Dr. A. Gabriel Esteban on his permanent appointment to the position of University President. While we are pleased with his appointment, we wish that the presidential replacement process would have been more transparent and inclusive of the University Community.
As the official undergraduate student newspaper, The Setonian has made every effort to bring the Seton Hall community the latest news on the presidential transition process. Unfortunately, we have not had much to report.
How would you label this fall semester? I would suggest starting with the terms "challenging" and "exhausting."
