Seton Hill is a rigorous school that rewards its students with rich opportunities for career and personal development. It's abounding with engaging and intelligent professors who value their students' success. There isn't as much of a social scene as one might find at a larger school; however, many students at this school are academically driven and, thus, spend much of their time working. In my experience, the intimate friendships that form allow one to fulfill all of their social needs. The food--or rather, the dining staff--is perhaps the single greatest part of this school. They are extremely accommodating of any dietary restrictions or allergies. Additionally, ANY student is able to walk directly into the kitchen and ask for something specific to be prepared if they can't find anything in the cafeteria that they would like to eat.

I visited Seton Hill University during my high school senior year. My visit included overnight lodging, meals, but most importantly inclusion in several classes I was interested in taking. I decided this was the place I wanted to obtain my degree. While I spent four semesters at community college, all of my credits transferred to Seton Hill. My advisers have been very helpful in making decisions to class schedule and career choices. This is an older campus with great atmosphere. It was very to transition from community college to university. I plan on obtaining an Art Education degree and am taking full advantage of a three year old arts building which contains not only art studios, but studios for dance. I would strongly advise anybody to include Seton Hill University on their must see.
Honestly, my experience at Seton Hill has not been that great. I do not enjoy myself at Seton Hill. The Greensburg area is not the type of area that I would like to further immerse myself in. One thing I do actually enjoy about Seton Hill is the overall love for Christmas!
