Seton Hall is a fantastic place to earn your degree in higher education. Its campus is captivating and the people who traverse it are passionate about their studies. The Department of Physics, in particular, is staffed with individuals who hold Ph.D.s in their field and are actively engaged on campus. The research laboratories in McNulty Hall are well organized and up to date, the primary lecture amphitheater was just recently renovated in the summer of 2018, and research labs have been upgraded to include new analysis technologies. This university wants you to succeed, so come to see what it has to offer!

Overall, Seton Hall has provided me with so many opportunities inside and outside of the classroom. As I look toward the end of my senior year, I am so thankful that I chose to come to Seton Hall. Seton Hall does a tremendous job at making sure its students have the most internship and job opportunities. The career center hosts several events every year to make sure employers come to campus and interview students or resume building workshops or mock-interview practice. Seton Hall prepares us, not only for the academics being learned here but also for the adult world beyond college. From my freshman year, I have been in a research lab and have gained invaluable experiences. If I had the choice to do it all over again, I would choose Seton Hall willingly!
As a incoming junior at Seton Hall, there are many things i have learned over my years. Some aspects that Seton Hall could improve on is their dining services, food is often inedible due to the fact that it is of low quality. The campus is decent, nothing extraordinary. The environment it is in unfortunately is crime ridden, this means that occasional thefts do take place. My overall experience has been good, due to the fact that the professors are intellectual and affable. However, being that Seton Hall is a commuter populated school, the dorms and overall student life for those on campus is sub-par to other universities. Some aspects that i enjoy are the basketball games and the recreational center; Seton Hall also like many other colleges has a lot of clubs for one to get involved in. Overall, Seton Hall is not the most affordable place to study, but if the scholarship is good enough i would highly recommend that you go ahead and become a Pirate!
