    Many are recognizably Catholic in that they have the reputation for being so, largely due to their age. Moreover, they advertise their Catholicism on their websites but when you go to their catalogs, you find material well beyond St. Augustine and Thomas Aquinas. The young staffers at the Young America's Foundation did just that and offer a neat little guide to several of these universities. For example, at Georgetown you can take courses in: • Labor/Sexuality/Globalization; • Athletics and Gender; • Culture/Politics/HIV; • Gender and Sustainability; and • The Bible and Horror. Providence College, meanwhile, has a Women's Studies department...

    A historic player is going home. Derrick Gordon, who is from New Jersey, announced Sunday, on Twitter, he's decided to finish his college hoops career at Seton Hall. It will be Gordon's third school; he began at Western Kentucky, then spent the past three years at UMass. Gordon announced his intentions to transfer in late March. His move is notable because he became the first openly gay player in men's Division I hoops when he came out in the spring of 2014.

    Nearly 18 months ago, Seton Hall University’s board made a list of the requirements for the school’s next president: Proven leader. A doctoral degree. Experience leading a large organization. Most importantly, he had to be a Catholic priest. On Tuesday, Seton Hall ditched its list and hired its first lay president in more than two decades. Former provost A. Gabriel Esteban was named the school’s 20th president as the state’s largest Catholic university officially dropped its hunt for a priest to fill the post. Esteban, 49, has been serving as Seton Hall’s interim president since last summer when two priests...

    The Big East's football expansion plans leave the conference with 17 universities, including non-Football members. That's a terrible number for scheduling; the only way the basketball teams can schedule an even number of games is if they play every other team only once. 18 teams would allow three divisions of six teams each. Any team would play the other five teams in its division twice, and one half of the twelve other teams in the conference. 18 sounds like worsening the problem of too many teams, but having three divisions could actually restore some rivalries, and return the conference to...

    Like putting a fox in charge of a chicken coop, Seton Hall University is allowing a pro-homosexual professor to give a course on “The Politics of Gay Marriage.” When plans for the anti-Catholic course were first announced at the diocesan university, the Most Reverend John J. Myers, Archbishop of Newark, responded. “This proposed course seeks to promote as legitimate a train of thought that is contrary to what the Church teaches. As a result, the course is not in synch with Catholic teaching,” he stated. However, despite the archbishop’s misgivings the course was not stopped. According to the New Jersey...

    According to an article published by The Setonian on April 15, a course on homosexual “marriage” will be offered next semester at Seton Hall University, a Catholic university in New Jersey with approximately 10,000 students. Here is the red flag: The course will be taught by Professor King Mott, a pro-homosexual activist whose biography, posted on Seton Hall’s web site, mentions his affiliation with Lambda Legal, Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies, and Human Rights Campaign -- groups that promote ideas that run contrary to Catholic moral teaching. Although the article in The Setonian affirms that the planned classes will...

    General Reports More than 24,000 Interrogations Conducted Since 2002; Assertions that All Interrogations Were Videotaped Affect Impending 9/11 TrialsNewark, NJ—Seton Hall Law’s Center for Policy and Research has discovered new evidence of a longstanding government practice of recording interrogations at Guantánamo Bay. In light of the national debate about the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) destruction of video recordings, the report proves that the two CIA tapes that were destroyed were only a tiny fraction of perhaps 24,000 recorded interrogations. A May 2005 report by Lieutenant General Kevin Kiley confirms that each interrogation at Guantánamo was videotaped. Lieutenant General Randall Schmidt...

    HOUSTON (AP) -- Former Minnesota Timberwolves forward Eddie Griffin died last week when his sport utility vehicle collided with a freight train in a fiery crash, the Harris County medical examiner's office said Tuesday. Investigators used dental records to identify Griffin, 25, who began his tumultuous pro career with the Houston Rockets in 2001. He was waived by the Timberwolves in March. "The cause of death and manner of death, which also includes toxicology results, is pending," said Beverly Begay, chief investigator for the Harris County Medical Examiner's office.

    State union leader Carla Katz's scholarship from Seton Hall Law School is now part of an inquiry ordered by North Jersey's Roman Catholic leader, who raised questions about donations made by her former boyfriend -- Governor Corzine. On Friday, Archbishop of Newark John Myers, who is chairman of the board at the Catholic university, directed the law school to make the review, a spokesman said. The request came after Myers learned of Katz's scholarship and Corzine's donations to the university, said John Goodness, a spokesman for the Newark Archdiocese. "Just because this issue has come up, it is just incumbent...

    Hollywood movie "Brokeback Mountain" is scheduled to stage at Seton Hall University, a Catholic institution founded in 1865. The film is currently listed on the university’s web site under “Multicultural Program Film & Lecture Series.” Catholics are being called to peacefully protest because the film: >>> Approves same-sex relations, adultery, nudity, profanity and drug use. It is a blow to Catholic education, America’s Christian roots, the institution of the family and very foundations of morality and society. >>> "Brokeback Mountain" is the antithesis of authentic Catholic education. It scrambles human emotions and encourages students to tolerate sin. The U.S. Conference...

    Foreign students looking for help applying to Seton Hall University instead got an offer to talk to "hot, horny girls" thanks to a misprinted phone number in the Catholic university's admissions application. Embarrassed Seton Hall officials said it appears two digits in the phone number were swapped on the undergraduate application. "We did 973 instead of 937. As you can see, it's an easy mistake," said Thomas White, a Seton Hall spokesman.

    For the Seton Hall Law School students who watched the Manhattan skyline from the windows of their school library as the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks unfolded, the chance to take a seminar on terrorism and civil liberties was too relevant to pass up. Each week for two hours, under the tutelage of a distinguished federal appellate judge by the name of Samuel A. Alito Jr., the students would hash out issues they knew were or soon would be a big deal as far as jurisprudence goes. Typical of the class, just working out a definition of "terrorism" took the students...

    South Orange, NJ, Oct. 31, 2005 (CNA) - An associate dean at Seton Hall University has been demoted after publicly stating that the Catholic Church is unfairly attacking homosexuals and making them scapegoats for the sex-abuse scandal.  W. King Mott, who is openly homosexual and lives with his partner, published his views in a letter that appeared in The Star-Ledger of Newark Oct. 19. The following day, the school's dean, Molly Smith, asked Mott to step down, saying it was inappropriate for the associate dean to publish his comments while identifying himself as part of the administration at the Catholic...
