Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The police on campus and in town are very strict, but it’s their job. You will not get away with anything if you are caught, so don’t try to fight it, or the situation could get worse. The toughest part of living off campus is the way the police red flag the houses and apartments where college kids live, and they will bust you if they hear even a peep. South Orange is a town of older, affluent people, and most of them wake up at 5 a.m. to take the train to work. If they hear a loud party next door, they will undeniably call the police on you.

The police, from time to time, try to put an end to parties by raiding houses and arresting the people on the leases, but the parties will always go on. One thing that Seton Hall does to limit the extent of partying is make all freshmen sign a waiver saying that they make a commitment to keep Seton Hall’s reputation a good one within the community. If you get arrested by the South Orange Police, they fax that citation to the school. Not only do you have to appear in South Orange court, you will also have to meet with the head of discipline at Seton Hall.
