Thank you for listening

Late Monday night I was woken up with the main-line phone number of Seton Hall flashing on my phone. After picking up, I was informed yet another armed robbery occurred close to campus.


Lady Gaga lacks class, music lacks a message

Allow me to preface this by admitting I know the majority of readers may fervently disagree with my sentiments, but I continue to be blown away by the antics of Lady Gaga (and not in a good way). Of course, her popularity has grown endlessly since "Just Dance" and I do commend her for some catchy tunes and being able to make it in a tough industry.


U.S. should take hint from abroad and lower cost of higher education

Sewanee, a liberal arts college in Tennessee, recently announced that for the 2011-2012 school year, it will cut tuition costs by 10 percent, according to The New York Times. While Sewanee undoubtedly hopes that this will increase applicants and stop the transfer of students to public universities in the state, experts have said Sewanee's decision to cut costs is, at best, a baby step in the right direction.


The Voice: Activities fees should be used for large events

The Setonian has reservations regarding Associate Vice President and Dean of Students Karen Van Norman's proposal to introduce a $50-per-semester Student Activities Fee. The majority of our editors feel that students pay Seton Hall more than enough money to the University as it is. However, we would support a fee under certain conditions.


Lyons, Willard team should benefit SHU

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.


Bursar's office needs to get student bills right the first time

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…).


The Voice: SHIP can improve study abroad experiences

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.


Black Eyed Peas: A flashy letdown

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.


Technology, social networking offer benefits and drawbacks

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).
