We are in the midst of tragedy here at Seton Hall. You don't need me, or any other person, to tell you that. The thoughts and memories of Jessica Ann Moore and the events that happened on Sept. 25, will forever be in our minds.
Seton Hall has had many successful, and not so successful, teams over the years. Most noted would be the 1989 men's basketball team that made it to the NCAA Championship game. Last year, Seton Hall witnessed the end to a few of the most successful athletic programs, indoor and outdoor track and field.
To the Editor:
The fatal act of violence which occurred one mile from Seton Hall's campus on Friday, took place in, what an article on NJ.com was quick to point out, an "unsanctioned" Greek life house. The university should reexamine its policy in sanctioning Greek life housing in order to create a safer environment for students.
To the University Community,
The Setonian would like to offer our sincerest condolences to the family of Jessica Moore. As members of the Seton Hall community, which lost a dear and valued member, we share in your grief.
Dear Seton Hall Family,
The SHUFLY shuttle has been so crowded this year that students have been turned away. The Setonian believes, for the safety of the students, this issue must be resolved.
As the first few weeks of the semester dwindle down, it seems like the attention span of many students is doing the same. The first week or so of the semester students seem to pay attention, take notes and listen to what their professors say, but what I've noticed in my time at Seton Hall is that it does not tend to last.
Seton Hall is typically referred to as a suitcase school. Why? Because the bulk of students are from New York, New Jersey and other surrounding areas, and home is a convenient way to spend the weekend. Does Seton Hall have to be a suitcase school? Absolutely not, but it is.
Last week congressional Democrats finally managed to accomplish a decade-old goal: expanding the definition of federal hate crimes to include sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and disability. President Barack Obama promptly signed this landmark civil-rights legislation into law, and civil-rights organizations hailed the accomplishment.
The last few years have seen the midpoint of the fall semester coincide with off-campus muggings. It's almost commonplace for us students, from the heightened security to the broadcast e-mails with safety tips that blast out to our inboxes following an incident.
The slogan for this year's University Day was "Come Home to the Hall." The slogan, along with the scheduled activities and parent weekend that occurring throughout the weekend, would seem to imply that University Day is almost like Seton Hall's homecoming.
We've detailed the ever-important relationship between Seton Hall and South Orange in recent issues, notably whether the university and the village can see eye-to-eye when it comes to students interacting in the community.
