My overall experience at Seton Hall University has been quite amazing. One month ago I was completely nervous and scared to start college. Within that time there have been many opportunities to meet people such as campus ministry events and TV shows in the student lounge. Every single person I have met here are sweethearts and great people to be around. Classes are wonderful to the point where I would never think that I do not want to be there. I have learned so much not only in my classes but about myself as well this past month; more than I have learned in my lifetime. I cannot picture myself anywhere else and am extremely excited to see what the next three years and eight months has to bring.

I would definitely choose my school over again if given the chance. I absolutely love the quality educationa and experience that I recieve. The only thing that disappoints me about my school is that since it is a private institution, they are extremely expensive and not accomodating in financial realms. Unfortunately, I'm not the only student who has noticed this either. That being said, I still would not have chosen a different school if I was given the opportunity over again. I would simply work harder to recieve outside scholarships and funding and work twice as hard at school to prove I am a worthy student.
