Athletics: Seton Hall athletics is great! Speaking from experience I am currently on the Swimming and Diving team and the team comradery is amazing. As for other teams the relationship between athlete and coach is one of a kind. The teams always succeed thanks to the support of our fans. The fan are what really help motivate the athletes. Most students on campus attend sporting events. As a way to encourage students to attend these events there was an app created by students for students, where they can check in a receive points. At the end of the year you could potentially earn a prize based on the amount of points you earned. Seton Hall athletics is great! The student athletes are one of a kind and so are the fans.

Diversity: There are a wide variety of people on campus. I think SHU is very diverse there are people of various races, religions, sexual orientation etc. Our school does a good job incorporating the diversity we had a international food day and food trucks from all different ethnic backgrounds served food on the campus green. I love the atmosphere and how the diversity comes together to create a happy fun environment.

Transportation: Public transportation to and from Seton Hall works well because my travel is not far. The con of public transportation is the loud and obnoxious passengers that may come on the bus while I am trying to do homework. Many times they have explicit conversations that does not need to be discussed so loudly.

Drug Safety: The drug scene is not that big, although it depends who you hang out with.

Off-Campus Dining: Very convenient and good options nearby campus. A cozy village area with a decent selection

Guys & Girls: Good and curious looking people. Social and welcoming.

Campus Quality: Please allow me to express my sorrow and my deepest concern and guilt and all the feelings I have felt during my accelerated nursing program at Seton Hall University NJ lakewood campus. couple of students struggled with acute adult nursing because of all other problems we had in the previous semesters. Imagine taking pathophysiology online, imagine pharmacology online in which we have seen both teachers once. we had no power-points, no charts, and no explanations for the courses. exams were horrible and so we had a great time. Acute adult 1 was similarly horrifying, we learned nothing despite all the personal effort we made and that caused us great trouble with acute 2 the next semester. Now with all these problems, here she comes in,who? the director of the program, her name is Dr. Toughill, a very bad director not knowing how to communicate with students, not knowing how to inspire them, but really knows how to make them feel bad saying" you study or get out of the program" waw, therapeutic communication is lacking here people, she made students feel like crap and she blamed us for everything, really, we paid lots of money for this shit, I do not recommend seton hall university, it is a crappy school and all you are buying is the name, contents and learning experience is horrible. so, please take this seriously. I dont know about North campus but lakewood GCU campus is f***ed up.

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants that are in walking distance and that the Seton Hall SHUfly takes students to that are ok. They are nothing special but it is nice to get off campus just by walking. The dinner is good and not pricey at all. Some of my best college memories were getting chocolate chip pancakes at the dinner. they are delicious but too heavy for an everyday thing. There was an Eden market downtown as well but I believe it changed owners. There was healthy options but very expensive for a college students budget. My advice is when the cafeteria has fresh fruit like apples and bananas, take one or two for a healthy snack later.

Administration: Seton Hall has a strict campus. The students tend to feel safe with a gated campus and 24/7 security in the dorm buildings. The campus also offers a safe ride when the students are off campus late at night.

Party Scene: There are a decent amount of parties off campus at the Fraternity houses. For the 21 and over crowd there are a few bars downtown. Overall the nightlife is not that crazy. A lot of students go home on the weekends and a lot of time Greek organization cut off non greek students from attending the parties.

Majors: Getting experience in any field is a very important step to success in onces career. Depending on your major these kind of experiences can vary from internships in a business or school or clinicals in a hospital setting. I have not had an internship yet because nursing students who fulfill the first two year requirements of their program are required to do clinicals in a hospital. This fits into a nursing students schedule as any other class would. A time is usually placed once or twice a week to go into a hospital and shadow nurses working as assistants and learning students. For those of other majors such as business or teaching, students are sent to business areas of their interest or schools.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am in a four year nursing program that I am enjoying so far and looking forward to continuing. As a nursing student, my schedule is very structured. The professors are experienced, and mostly previous nurses who have gone through the same education process. They are able to educate their students with first hand advice on how to approach real life situations in a hospital scene. They have succeeded in emphasizing the importance of providing emotional care as well as additional care to the patients. Nursing students are treated with priority and care. I feel that with their help I will be in good direction and preparation for my career.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am very happy with the nursing program at Seton Hall University. Although I will only be a sophomore in this up coming semester, I am sure that I would not want to be heading in a different direction. Seton Hall has an excellent program that prepares you both mentally and emotionally for the career of a nurse. My goal is to work in as nurse for oncology. I believe that the clinicals and classes that I attend for the remaining three years will guide me in the right direction. There are a wide variety of career choices when graduating with a nursing degree. With the constant need in health care I do not feel there would be many problems finding a job I am content with.

5 College Junior

Majors: Apply early, although there is a rolling application process (unlike many other nursing colleges). Seton Hall has the largest nursing school in NJ, and accepts the most. The minimum GPA is 3.5, to be accepted to this college. This school uses exclusively the GPA for admission processes.

5 College Junior

Majors: They are varied and many. The college of Nursing enjoys a prestigious reputation, as do the School of Law and Business College. I am entering the College of Nursing this fall and already have received many ooohs and ahhhs for being selected for this great opportunity!

5 College Junior

Majors: I have attended Sussex County Community College, earning a liberal arts degree and concentrating on pre-nursing courses. The course load was rigorous, the teachers were extremely helpful and I was successful in attaining scholarships. I would definitely do this again, and plan on speaking out to other displaced parents in order to encourage them toward education. I earned an honor at the state level for my accomplishments and without truly dedicated teachers and staff at SCCC, I would not have been able to reach my goals or accomplishments.

Weather: You get all four seasons on campus, while winters are somewhat unpredictable with random severe snow storms or hurricanes too. We have had some serious damage, not to the school, but to the neighborhoods. In those cases, school may be cancelled for a stretch of time. Otherwise, it's your mild and standard fall, winter, spring, and summer.

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.
