3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like Seton Hall's greenery on campus, but that's about it. Many of the building are old or currently under renovation or scheduled to be. It's expensive, they don't offer as many extracurriculars as other schools, and it's pretty small.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school costs are very expensive . They charge for the smallest things possible that no one could even think of. They aren't very helpful with hard financial situations and the vibe at the school is not the most welcoming .

Classes are good. It's really all they can offer there.

Overall Experience: Seton Hall has a great environment, but do expect money out of you for everything. High tutition is just a start, expect a lot of unnecessary fees added on, including one for just being an undergraduate student.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school had the perfect amount of students. The class sizes were small enough to receive teachers attention and for everyone to get to know each other in the class.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Seton Hall University is too expensive for a school that is not even an ivy league school. They suck your money left and right. For finals they literally started charging their students in the library study rooms if they stayed too long. It's finals! We live in the library because final exams determine our GPA at the end of the semester.

I wish I did go to a community college my first two years and then transfer. I highly regret going for all 4 years in Seton Hall.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like Seton Hall University because of how beautiful the campus with the greenery, how small it is because the farthest walk walking across campus takes about 5 minutes and how humble the people are.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Great University with an awesome Alumni network.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Seton Hall University is a great academic institution, filled with professors who aim to challenge their students. As a current sophomore, I would advise incoming freshman to get involved on campus, take advantage of the New York area, and explore the options presented to them while attending the university. Also I highly recommend visiting the resources provided to SHU students such as the Arc Resource Center, and the Career center, since these services are included in your tuition and are very helpful.

I enjoy attending this university but the only drawback presents itself after 2pm on a Friday afternoon. The campus literally becomes a ghost town and not many students can be spotted on the campus green. As a result, it is important to build a network of friends to help you survive the weekend, take trips to the city, visit nearby campuses, and study on the weekend, since it is important to balance work and play.

In the future, I would suggest that Seton Hall University hosts more events as the semester continues, not just during the first 100 days, so students can network with one another.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wouldn't have chosen this school if I realized how expensive it was. They lowered their tuition for this up coming class to be competitive with Rutgers and so on... but they didn't offer it for current students. This school is way to expensive.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Seton Hall is the most welcoming and fun school I have ever considered.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's hard to find a place in June.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The area outside of campus is a bit dangerous to be.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The scholarships provide a great deal of aid when it comes to paying my tuition and fees.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties get shut down by the South Orange Police Department every time.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are enough restaurants to satisfy the common student body at Seton Hall.

1 College Freshman

Administration: Campus security has a tendency to make students feel as if they do not belong to the university. If a student makes a mistake, authorities treat them like convicted criminals and use interrogation tactics to get information; which is not protocol.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus food lacks variety. The food in the dining hall starts to get old after awhile; and throughout the year, the food starts to get progressively worse.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: First and foremost, the authorities treat commuters like they do not attend the university. Commuters face a great deal of stress when trying to enter the dorms. To get in, there must be a student resident in attendance to sign them in. This is relatively frustrating considering that commuters are just as important as students who dorm. Although i was a residing student, I would often have to wake up early to sign my commuting friends out. As I am a student who values sleep as much as my education, the act of waking up to sign out a commuter conflicted with my everyday schedule. Even though this wasn't an every day thing, things would be a whole lot easier if commuters were allowed to have more privileges; therefore, dorming is not the best choice for everyone.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus just heard it was a better price

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's a good mix of food places without breaking the bank

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It is a good thing to keep everything in order

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got my scholarships but not much other aid to help with the pricey tutition

4 College Freshman

Administration: I don't think it's really that strict, but that's going off of what I've seen or never seen.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The rec center is still fairly new. A lot of people wish that there was an actual squat rack, though.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
