Seton Hall University Reviews
Many factors come into play when choosing a college. For me, the three most important things I looked at were programs that were direct and convenient, the cost, and the ability to make my own mark. Personally, I want to become a Speech-Language Pathologist, and Seton Hall University (SHU) provided me with a program that not only guarantees a direct path into my dream but it also allows me to get multiple degrees along the way. SHU acknowledges that they are a private school, and that tuition rates are increasing annually. Thus, lots of the aid is provided through the school based on one's academic standard and different need-based grants are given to those in need, even to parents' whom also paying for their other children's education. Last but not least, the size of SHU is ideal for standing out and make a mark, especially as a minority. Faculty and students at Seton Hall wants you to succeed and want to help you achieve your goals. SHU is as genuine as it gets! Go Pirates!
Seton Hall University is a small, close-knit community! When I walk across campus I see at least 5 people I know well. There are opportunities to expand your interests and talents with a close proximity to NYC. If you are looking for a large school with every single thing at your fingertips, then Seton Hall is not for you. However, SHU offers a unique environment of a close community that still provides its students with opportunities to grow in a diverse community.
I'm having the most wonderful experience here at Seton Hall University. I feel like Seton Hall offers the best of both worlds-- we have that big school feel with having Division 1 Sports and when you walk across the green, you don't always see familiar faces. But then you get that small school feel when you're in the classroom, with a small class size, and your professor knows your name! Also, Seton Hall guarantees student success, our Career Center offers over 15,000 internships every year, and we are able to do that because we are only 14 miles from New York City. I'm so thankful to be able to got to a school that makes me feel like I am at home! Choosing Seton Hall University was the best decision I've ever made.
