Senior column: Student-athletes should mourn but be grateful for the connections they made along the way

I was extremely lucky that I got to finish my senior season as a swimmer a week and a half before the cancellations of professional and collegiate sports. With everything going on in the world right now, the cancellation of NCAA competitions may seem like the bottom of the list in terms of importance on the world scale. However, for many student-athletes across the United States, losing the end of your senior season can feel as...

Conference realignment 10 years later: the reshaping of college basketball

When  it  comes  to  college hoops,  regional rivalries have consistently dominated the minds of local fans and created. In New Jersey, Rutgers and Seton Hall sit just 30 miles from each other and have left New Jersey split. The schools grew a disdain for each other during their 23 years together in  the  Big East,  but  conference realignment has stripped the  rivalry of  the  in-conference stakes that the matchups once included....

Parity is this year’s star of college basketball

It seems that in any given year, you can’t watch or discuss college basketball without hearing about that team or that player. Remember Zion Williamson’s tenure at Duke and Trae Young’s Oklahoma? How about the Kentucky squad that won 38 consecutive games in 2014-15 before stumbling in the Final Four? Their greatness defined the narrative of a sport’s entire season, on and off the hardwood. Those guys dominated their opponents night in...

Review: Tara Westover shares her story in memoir “Educated”

Education is subjective. Its definition is always changing, and as a result, there is not a solid answer to the question of what it means to be educated, or who is an “educated” person. For many people, education is the physical act of attending a school and learning about topics like the basics of math or writing. But for Tara Westover, being educated means being aware. She opened her eyes to her surroundings and to the vast world...

College football shockingly predictable at halfway mark

It seems like yesterday that the humidity was thick and college football was kicking off in August. Now that the temperatures have dropped and the days have become shorter, it is time to recap and assess all that has occurred in college football thus far as most teams have played six games out of their scheduled 12.

As you enter college, remember to treat yourself well

Finding yourself in college involves a lot more than just trying any and everything. Finding yourself is about struggling, and failing and moving forward despite it all. The Voice claims that there is a way “to be both enthusiastic and wary at the same time.” That fine line between those two types of self is called self-care. No, this doesn’t mean face masks and meditation; this means self-care in an emotional sense. This means...

Grober having early success in a Pirates uniform

It is traditionally rare for a freshman to come in and get regular playing time with a college team. It is even rarer for that freshman to contribute on a regular basis. Yet, Steve Grober has done just that for the Seton Hall baseball team. As it sits now, Grober is fourth on the team in batting average to go along with two home runs and 19 runs batted in, both good for third on the team. After settling in at the plate, Grober has...

Remember to reflect and finish the year out strong

We’re in the home stretch now, Pirates! It’s officially the week after Easter break, and we all know what that means: sunny skies, lounging on the Green and everyone’s favorite: finals. File Photo We at The Setonian think that it can be universally agreed upon that finals during spring semesters are so, so much worse than finals during fall semesters. After all, it’s beautiful out, and the last thing any of us want to be doing is...
