3 College Freshman

Computers: Laptops and Network – Every student recieves a laptop upon attending the university. Incoming freshmen recieve the latest model of the Lenovo laptops and get to exchange them for brand new ones in their junior year which they can keep upon graduating. Getting a computer is pretty cool except some students come with macs and have there school laptops just sitting on their desks. The network on campus is pretty good except when to many people are trying to do the same thing at the same time like registering.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Opportunities for All – By being so close to New York City, we are offered many job opportunities especially in the field of Business and Diplomacy. Internships are given out to students who work hard for them and it gives them an opportunity to gear towards their future career path. Seton Hall makes it simple for students to network and meet professionals.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although Seton Hall is a small institution, students here love to show our school spirit. We love to come together as a family and represent what our school has to offer, whether it's our basketball team or thriving academics. Here at Seton Hall we work hard and play hard. We get the best of both worlds and it provides students with a great college experience.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greeks – The Greek life here is big when it comes to networking and being apart of a sister or brotherhood. Each frat and sorority makes it their priority to get involved on campus whether it's through community service projects or hosting parties.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: GO PIRATES! Seton Hall University is well known for their fantastic basketball team. The school spirit surrounding our team is not only one of great enthusiam, but also one of great spirit and pride. A very large percentage of students purchase season tickets every year and join in on the pirate fun.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Although many incidents have occurred where student safety may not seem effective, Seton Hall is truly trying their best to increase security and ultimately protect the entire Seton Hall community. Our student ID swipe system works very well, in addition to having multiple security guards at each entrance on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The Seton Hall University cirriculum is extremely rigigorous. The expectations for incoming freshman is high and requires many of them to engage in different facets of university life. I absolutely love the English program at Seton Hall because students are not required to study one aspect of literature, but rather delve into all of the wonderful genres. The professors are brilliant, and they encourage to learn as much as I can and always remain open-minded.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: South Orange – South Orange as a whole is pretty average. It does not have much to do besides go to the mall and go to target when the shu fly takes you. We have pretty good places down the street of south orange for instance, Ritas, Subway, Rite Aid, Dunkin Donuts, good dining places, and a movie theather. The only negative aspect of the movie theather is that it closes early which is not helpful to those students who have night class or work.

Drug Safety: Drugs Are Limited to Smoking! When I say "drugs are limited to smoking" I am of course knowledgeable of my observational limitations. What happens behind closed doors is unknown to me but if there is a drug scene at Seton Hall it is in private. No public drug scene other than smoking.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Finding parking after 9am is a pain. You have to search through all the floors of the parking deck

1 College Junior

Nightlife: parties are not interesting. a ton of people shoved into a basement isn't enjoyable. alcohol runs out quickly and so do cups.

3 College Junior

Diversity: My Acceptance – seton hall is diverse, but not exceptionally diverse. i have become more open to diversity and differences because of my environment.

5 College Junior

Computers: we have a limit on the amount of prints that we can make. as a nursing student i have to print out roughly 50 slides per class per week. this amount is entirely too much to print on campus as i will exceed my limit amount. this has caused me to work more on my computer and go with notes on my computer. this has improved my work so much! i am so much more efficient on the computer and tend to take notes much more.

1 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Bad Dining – Off campus is really about Chinese food, pizza. There is not much variety.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Seton Hall's basketball team is very popular on campus. They aren't very good players but they have a lot of popularity. The gym is pretty good they just got new equipment. There is a very good fan base and team spirit but most people don't like the school.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: the students are relatively average. There are all types of attire worn. There are a lot of guidos on campus as well as "ghetto" people. The social life is very boring. Mostly everyone leaves on the weekends and there isn't much to do.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: everything is pretty expensive and the landlords are pretty horrible. Also, the cops spend way to much time trying to break up student parties rather than protecting the students from the muggings that happen every week.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Seton Hall is a small university, so I think it makes in easier to find out what's going on around campus. There are a lot of academic opportunities between clubs and organizations.

4 College Junior

Transportation: We have the New Jersey Transit and it's about a 10-15 minute walk from campus. There are also public city bus stops around South Orange. Seton Hall also provides a bus service to get to places in town.

4 College Junior

Academics: At Seton Hall, professors are very helpful if you need help after class with your work. They are also readily available via e-mail.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: overall my experince is okay. Not the best school but not the worst school

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It Gets Boring – very suburban, family town, parties get shut down alot, train to city is 15 min walk from campus, last train is around 1am though

3 College Junior

Facilities: The school itself is good. The Department of Communication and the Arts has a lot to offer students. There are tons of internship and job opportunities.
The social scene is good. Sometimes it tends to be a backpack school, where people go home a lot. However, for those who don't go home, the school is still a great place to be with friends.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The only thing I don't like when it comes to strictness is the guest policy. We cannot have a guest for more than two nights in a row. If someone, like me, is dating someone at a distance, having them for two nights only becomes an annoyance. It creates a larger gap in the relationship and creates strain.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: All You Can Eat – There is a ton of variety which is usually pretty good and the employees are friendly. I spend more time talking with Eugene and Aunt Gene then my friends. I like the spicy tuna sushi and the flank steak for carvery.

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.
