Parking: I commute to the school, and I come at all different times and still manage to find a spot nowadays.

Niche User

Parking: They're very strict with parking, and the school issues a lot of tickets.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is ridiculously expensive, so try to cram as many of your friends as you can on a single lease.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: South Orange itself is very expensive, but there are good deals a mile or so away from campus. The only problem is that it is a really bad area, so it's tough for girls to find affordable housing.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: The place I live-South Orange Towers-is real ghetto, but it is cheap. The complex is half students, half people from the neighborhood.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: There is no parking on the streets of South Orange at night, so if you find a place, make sure that they have parking.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: There's a shuttle that takes people back and forth between Ora Manor and the campus, so transportation is not a problem.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: There is a variety of apartment complexes around the school, although they are fairly expensive.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is cool, but just because you have a place, everybody thinks that they can just come over and drink every night.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is expensive since you're so close to NYC, but if you can afford it, it isn't a bad idea. Try to find an apartment to rent.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Living in a house is fun, but you have to really like the people you are with, or else it could be hell. I think everyone should have the experience of living off campus once in their life.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: The realtors are very helpful to college kids, but you have to start looking early in the spring to find something.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Rent ranges from $800-$2,000 a month for an apartment close to campus.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Housing near campus is very expensive in the city of South Orange. I recommend you live on campus.

Athletics: Seton Hall is in the Big East, so they play a lot of the big teams.

Niche User

Athletics: Seton Hall has a long history as being a basketball school-we don't have a football team.

Niche User

Athletics: Sports are pretty big, with basketball being the biggest attraction, even though the team has been going downhill the last few years.

Niche User

Athletics: Seton Hall has a good baseball program. A bunch of pro players have gone through here!

Niche User

Athletics: There are intramural teams for basketball, floor hockey, soccer, tennis, football, softball, dodgeball and volleyball.

Niche User

Athletics: The only IM sport I've watched is basketball, and that's really entertaining. It all depends on what you like.

Niche User

Athletics: The 6th Man is a club that supports the Pirates, they paint their faces and conduct cheers for all the games. They even got an opposing coach ejected when he started to argue with them.

Niche User

Athletics: The frat guys take intramurals way too seriously. I know one kid who missed a whole week of class during the basketball tournament.

Niche User

Athletics: Intramurals are more competitive than the real sports here.

Niche User

Athletics: The women's teams are not really that noticeable on campus, until you see 10 seven-foot women sitting in the cafeteria.

Niche User

Athletics: Freshman year, everybody starts a team on their own dorm floors.

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.
