Facilities: The field house is huge and actually very good. It houses an indoor track, as well as a number of basketball courts. We also have a racquetball court and a very nice swimming pool, both of which can be used by the entire student body.

Niche User

Facilities: The computer labs are stocked full of new computers, most with flat screens and zip drives, and the usual computer accessories.

Niche User

Facilities: The student center is where you'll find the cafeteria, Pirate's Cove, the Theater-in-the-Round (which is a small theater designed after the Coliseum), the Main Lounge (home to Thursday night parties among other things), the Greek room, and offices for many organizations and clubs.

Niche User

Facilities: On Thursday nights, the student center turns into a hip-hop club; everybody always goes to that.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The cafeteria has Nathan's, a pizzeria, a sandwich shop, an ice cream shop, and there is also a buffet. When you buy a meal card, you prepay for meals at the buffet, and if you do not use them, you still have to pay for it.

Niche User

Campus Dining: I am a vegan, and in the buffet, they always have a different meal everyday to suit my needs.

Niche User

Campus Dining: I like to get the pre-packaged sushi. I eat like two California rolls a day.

Niche User

Campus Dining: They opened up a buffet last year that had some pretty bad meals in it, but my favorite is where you could Wok your own meal, so you actually knew what you were eating.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The best part about the cafeteria is that it stays open until 1 a.m., which is quite different from a lot of other national schools.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The deli meats in the buffet probably consist of the same pieces from when I first started here.

Niche User

Campus Dining: Not to be gross, but the food runs right through me.

Niche User

Campus Dining: Besides the cafeteria, there is another place to eat on campus known as the Pirate's Cove. It serves food that is a little better, but, of course, the menu is somewhat limited.

Niche User

Campus Dining: I always just borrow my friend's meal card. I haven't paid for food in two years.

Niche User

Campus Dining: If you are a commuter, don't buy a meal plan, you can put money on a debit system where you can swipe your ID in the bookstore or the cafeteria, and you get back what you don't spend.

Niche User

Campus Dining: I know of a couple people who have gotten seriously ill from eating in the buffet section.

Niche User

Campus Dining: I really like the food at the Cove, but it takes the ladies behind the counter so long to get to you, and if you don't give them exact change, they huff and puff.

Niche User

Diversity: Campus is so diverse. That's one of the things that I really like about it. There's a little bit of everything; it makes for a good atmosphere in and out of the classroom.

Niche User

Diversity: There is a decent degree of diversity on campus. Naturally, a lot of students are from New Jersey, but the School of Diplomacy brings in international students from all over the world.

Niche User

Diversity: Part of the education at Seton Hall is the mixing of ideas from different cultures.

Niche User

Diversity: They give every freshman a course on diversity during orientation; it could have been the worst presentation that I have ever had to sit through.

Niche User

Diversity: Many academic publications say that SHU is very diverse. However, it's hard to tell, because the school is so small that you really don't notice.

Niche User

Diversity: Caucasians definitely are the majority around campus, but when you walk into the cafeteria at any given time it is diverse.

Niche User

Diversity: I never had a black friend until I came to this school, and now most of them are.

Niche User

Diversity: I'm Latino, and appreciate diversity. There is a strong presence of every culture here, but it's mostly dominated by caucasians.

Niche User

Diversity: Seton Hall makes sure that no one is left out. It seems like every ethnicity has its organization.

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.
