Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants that are in walking distance and that the Seton Hall SHUfly takes students to that are ok. They are nothing special but it is nice to get off campus just by walking. The dinner is good and not pricey at all. Some of my best college memories were getting chocolate chip pancakes at the dinner. they are delicious but too heavy for an everyday thing. There was an Eden market downtown as well but I believe it changed owners. There was healthy options but very expensive for a college students budget. My advice is when the cafeteria has fresh fruit like apples and bananas, take one or two for a healthy snack later.

Campus Strictness: Seton Hall has a strict campus. The students tend to feel safe with a gated campus and 24/7 security in the dorm buildings. The campus also offers a safe ride when the students are off campus late at night.

Nightlife: There are a decent amount of parties off campus at the Fraternity houses. For the 21 and over crowd there are a few bars downtown. Overall the nightlife is not that crazy. A lot of students go home on the weekends and a lot of time Greek organization cut off non greek students from attending the parties.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting experience in any field is a very important step to success in onces career. Depending on your major these kind of experiences can vary from internships in a business or school or clinicals in a hospital setting. I have not had an internship yet because nursing students who fulfill the first two year requirements of their program are required to do clinicals in a hospital. This fits into a nursing students schedule as any other class would. A time is usually placed once or twice a week to go into a hospital and shadow nurses working as assistants and learning students. For those of other majors such as business or teaching, students are sent to business areas of their interest or schools.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am in a four year nursing program that I am enjoying so far and looking forward to continuing. As a nursing student, my schedule is very structured. The professors are experienced, and mostly previous nurses who have gone through the same education process. They are able to educate their students with first hand advice on how to approach real life situations in a hospital scene. They have succeeded in emphasizing the importance of providing emotional care as well as additional care to the patients. Nursing students are treated with priority and care. I feel that with their help I will be in good direction and preparation for my career.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am very happy with the nursing program at Seton Hall University. Although I will only be a sophomore in this up coming semester, I am sure that I would not want to be heading in a different direction. Seton Hall has an excellent program that prepares you both mentally and emotionally for the career of a nurse. My goal is to work in as nurse for oncology. I believe that the clinicals and classes that I attend for the remaining three years will guide me in the right direction. There are a wide variety of career choices when graduating with a nursing degree. With the constant need in health care I do not feel there would be many problems finding a job I am content with.

5 College Junior

Majors: Apply early, although there is a rolling application process (unlike many other nursing colleges). Seton Hall has the largest nursing school in NJ, and accepts the most. The minimum GPA is 3.5, to be accepted to this college. This school uses exclusively the GPA for admission processes.

5 College Junior

Majors: They are varied and many. The college of Nursing enjoys a prestigious reputation, as do the School of Law and Business College. I am entering the College of Nursing this fall and already have received many ooohs and ahhhs for being selected for this great opportunity!

5 College Junior

Majors: I have attended Sussex County Community College, earning a liberal arts degree and concentrating on pre-nursing courses. The course load was rigorous, the teachers were extremely helpful and I was successful in attaining scholarships. I would definitely do this again, and plan on speaking out to other displaced parents in order to encourage them toward education. I earned an honor at the state level for my accomplishments and without truly dedicated teachers and staff at SCCC, I would not have been able to reach my goals or accomplishments.

3 College Freshman

Weather: You get all four seasons on campus, while winters are somewhat unpredictable with random severe snow storms or hurricanes too. We have had some serious damage, not to the school, but to the neighborhoods. In those cases, school may be cancelled for a stretch of time. Otherwise, it's your mild and standard fall, winter, spring, and summer.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Each student is given a new computer once enrolled at Seton Hall, with new and state of the art features. The current laptops convert into tablets, and even run with Office 365, which was only introduced by Seton Hall. There is WiFi for convenience, and both tech classes and departments to help with any questions.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Food is ok. At times it gets redundant. However food is always available

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I'm sure some students engage in drugs and alcohol but the people I hang with don't and I am very comfortable .

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are adequate . It gets better as an upperclassman. Very convenient and housing process was simple. It works for me

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It can be tricky at times, but the people are helpful. However, you must be accountable and responsible. Always ask questions when you are unsure.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have no personal experience with the Greek life at school.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have few experiences with the health offices at Seton Hall, but those few were good ones. However, there it is not very difficult for non-students to get on campus.

Part of your education is being around people from different walks of life, and no place is better for that than Seton Hall, one of the most diverse campuses in the country. The social scene at Seton Hall is very trendy and fast-paced. The school is full of rich kids with all the money in the world to burn, and they normally burn it on clothes and bars. Seton Hall's education is good depending upon your major. Business, nursing, computer science, and diplomacy are what make Seton Hall a Tier II school. The people you meet here, and the friendships that you form, make this school a community. After an academically-tough freshman year, the only thing that kept me from transferring were the friends that I would miss. Another good reason to attend Seton Hall is its proximity to New York City, which is an endless bank of great internships, and possibly jobs. The Career Center on campus works very hard to obtain Seton Hall students positions in places like Wall Street, and as the saying about NYC goes, if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.

If you do come to Seton Hall, you should get involved with a group or organization. In high school, it was not cool to be in the Stock Market Club, but here, the kids who are in it might be the future millionaires, so find something you like or something that is orientated with your studies. Finally, balance your work and your play. Part of the professional world is based on people skills, and if you are cramped up in the library the whole time, chances are, you do not have the best social skills. On the other hand, if you do not know where the library is by junior year, then you need to seriously rethink the whole college thing.
