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.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I look at the friendships I've formed, the fun times I've had, and I think it was a good choice. Academically, if you put in the effort, you'll get the education you're looking for. Socially, it's a friendly place.

Niche User

Weather: The weather here is pretty seasonal. Crisp and a little nippy in the fall, hot in the summer, cold in the winter, and warm in the spring.

Niche User

Weather: To help you get a better idea of what the weather may be like, take a look at the Weather Channel, and look for temperatures in New York. The temperatures are the same in South Orange as they are in Manhattan.

Niche User

Weather: You get to enjoy every season at Seton Hall. If you are from California, you are in for a treat when you get your first snow.

Niche User

Weather: The temperature starts out in the 70s or 80s in September with occasional rain. Then, it's down to the 20s and 30s with some snow in the winter. When spring rolls around, temperatures go back up to the `70s and `80s with more rain.

Niche User

Weather: South Orange is beautiful and comfortable during the fall and spring, but expect cold winters.

Niche User

Weather: Bring fans, and yes I mean fans-plural! Boland Hall is a sweatbox.

Niche User

Weather: The first two weeks and the last two weeks of the school year will usually have beautiful, sunny weather. The fall will be chilly, but is usually very beautiful in New Jersey. Winters can be rough, but that depends on the year.

Niche User

Weather: Spring is comfortable temperature-wise, but there is a lot of rain.

Niche User

Weather: When it is hot, there is no escape from the heat in the shadows of Newark.

Niche User

Weather: In the winter, the average temperatures are in the mid 20s to 30s with the occasional snowfall. Fall and spring are beautiful here. We have a long Indian summer in the fall, and it doesn't really get cold until mid-November. The weather starts to get warm again in February. We actually had one day in January this year that was 70 degrees! I hate the cold, but I think the weather is tolerable here.

Niche User

Weather: New Jersey weather is very strange. I would bring a lot of different clothing just in case, because the weather is always changing.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I was accepted to Seton Hall and St. John's University. I didn't want to go to SHU at first, but when I took my tour and met everyone, I fell in love with SHU. I'm happy with my decision.

Overall Experience: I hate this place, if I had the grades I would have transferred freshman year.

Niche User

Overall Experience: One thing that I recommend is that you should live on campus your first year. I made that mistake and commuted. I really missed out on a lot, and don't really have much of a social life at school. So, even though the dorms may not be satisfying, you may get lucky and get one of the nice ones. Besides, it's only for one year, and then you get the bigger dorms.

Niche User

Overall Experience: My overall view of this school is that it is a good school academically. I do have a couple complaints, like the expensive tuition. However, I think it will pay off in the end.

Niche User

Overall Experience: The business school helped me get a great job before I even graduated.

Niche User

Overall Experience: The professors here get paid less than most, but are here because they care about teaching, and they are very helpful to anyone who asks for assistance.

Niche User

Overall Experience: The school is a perfect size. You don't get lost in it, yet you can always see someone that you don't know.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I've learned that you make your own education; you make your own life. If you make the right choices about your schoolwork and your activities when you come to SHU, you can be very happy.

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.
