    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!
    Seton Hall University has provided many opportunities for me on campus and off of campus. The Career Center starts working with you your freshman year in order to prepare you for the career fair that takes place twice a year. I am a nursing major, and my first semester freshman year, I was actually offered a part-time job at an urgent care agency. I would never have received a similar opportunity anywhere else. It has the rumor to be a "suitcase campus" because there are a lot of commuters and people go home on the weekends, but that isn't true. There are so many activities on campus on the weekends held by the Student Activities Board. The train station is downtown so it is so easy to go to New York. I go to concerts all the time! I've gotten a well-rounded experience at Seton Hall and I'm very happy wit my decision.
