4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are mostly very good and willing to help, but there are always occasionally a few bad professors that slip through. Overall the classes are great and class sizes are relatively small compared to other schools.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If you work hard and do well you will get a great internship. Seton Hall provides you with amazing opportunities so its up to you what you do with them. I know people that have interned for MTV, CBS, ABC, Telemundo, Nickelodeon, John & Johnson, and countless more

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are always frat parties, usually multiple each night of the weekend. Or you could go to one of the bars in town. During the year when Greek life has mixers there are less parties, but there is usually always something to do. Parties are so fun if you know the right people/places. A lot of people dont give seton hall enough credit. Just because they may not have fun doesnt mean that the Party Scene isnt great, cause it is.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: They really need to build another upperclassmen dorm. Freshman dorms are bad.

1 College Student

Campus Housing: The food isn't even real food really, everything taste like plastic and there's no options.

Party Scene: You can go to Above on Thursdays or go to the city but I wouldn't necessarily say Seton Hall is a party school.

Scholarships: I haven't had any problems with them. But I have heard bad things.

1 College Senior

Campus Food: Yeah everything pretty much sucks. You can't go wrong with donuts and muffins from Dunkin but the coffee is pretty gross.

Campus Housing: I currently live in off-campus housing it was upgraded this summer so its okay. When i first transferred I lived in Xavier (apparently that was the best on campus dorm). I thought it was OK. But I hated living in a dorm.

It's really expensive to live off-campus and if you don't have your own car you'll have to rely on the Shufly.

5 College Senior

Athletics: SHU is Division 1, so the sports teams are some of the best in the country. The games are a blast to attend, especially the men's basketball team, which plays at the Prudential Center (only 15 minutes away, bus transportation is provided). GO PIRATES!

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is good for those students who have found a good group of people to live with, but on-campus housing is another good option as well. Prices are a little cheaper for living off campus, and it is a little closer to town and the train station, making it a little more accessible to the city. However, both on-campus and off campus housing is superb and every student chooses whatever option best fits their needs- there is no cookie cutter solution for everyone.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of places off campus to eat. South Orange (Seton Hall's town) has a ton of great eating spots of campus, with many different nationalities to choose from. There are also many different price ranges as well, from regular dining to very upscale food options.

5 College Senior

Administration: SHU is not too strict about its policies. In terms of strictness, it is average. I enjoy attending school here and the staff and administration is flexible for most requests.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: There are a ton of scholarships to choose from, and all of the students I know received some sort of scholarship from the school. There are also a ton of scholarship writing competitions, so receiving scholarships is a breeze even after you have been accepted into the school.

Party Scene: You can party as much or as little as you want. I have friends that party all the time, and others that don't party at all- it is completely up to you. You can make Seton Hall as much of a party school as you want to- it is not a school where students are forced to party to make friends. Some of the most popular people I know party the least- it is all about how you network with other people, and making friends in your classes and activities on campus.

5 College Senior

Campus Food: The food on campus is great, and I have been using my meal plan for my entire college career at SHU. The food is great, and if you don't like what they are serving that day, you can always cook your own food with the hot plates and skillets that are provided. Good gluten free and vegan options also available, as well as a huge salad bar.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Dorms are very clean and tidy, all of the rooms have been recently renovated. The rooms are very large compared to other colleges, and I am very pleased with the overall living accommodations on and off campus for this university. I have lived on campus for my entire college career.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics is very important at the school. Most students participate in the intramural sports. Everyone keeps up with the basketball teams and knows how they are doing during the season.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing gives students a lot of freedom. There are many options very close to the school and I've never heard of someone having trouble finding a place to live. The Village is a very safe place, but keep the buddy system in mind.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is really great around South Orange. I have ordered take out and gone to almost every restaurant around the Village and always had a great experience. The cost is average, but there are a lot of student discounts to be had. I like the variety because I'm a fan of Middle Eastern cuisine and they have options while most towns don't. La Vera is one of the best Italian take out places around.

4 College Junior

Administration: The administration is fair with their strictness versus leniency. They always try to make the best of students experiences.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The Financial Services office is really helpful. When my federal aid didn't cover my bill, they gave me more options directly from Seton Hall. I haven't had to take out very many private loans, because most of my scholarships and loans come directly from the school. As long as you communicate with the office, they are more than willing to help you and try to make it as easy as possible. They want to keep you at the school.

Party Scene: I don't know much about parties, but from what I've heard the parties are fun. There are a lot of off campus party options, as well as on campus ones sponsored by our Student Government and Activities Board. The party scene has a positive impact on student experience and creates community and friendships.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The dining hall has something for everyone and a lot of make it your own options if you dislike what the school has provided for you. It is buffet style so you can have as much as you want, so you get your moneys worth. The Build Your Own Burger is the best place on campus to eat along with the fresh sushi option in the Cove. The Pirate Bucks give you variety to eat at all the eateries on campus. You can also spend Pirate's Gold at certain take out places and restaurants in town.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great because everything is accessible. You can easily reach everything on campus within a few minutes of a walk. The dorms are standard and are nice. The housing process is very easy to understand. I like the social atmosphere of campus because of the community that is created. There are a lot of food options too, which is great.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
