Seton Hill is a very good university. It is a very small school, but you are able to connect with professors and faculty very easily. My first semester has been really great! There is not much to do in the immediate area, but if you drive for a few minutes there are things to do!

I attended the MFA Creative Writing program and left. They are way overpriced for an online program whose professors aren't famous or tremendously published.
They have some talented people there, don't get me wrong, but the school is a rip off for what you DON'T get. Very money focused. Also feels very cliquish and a bit discriminatory towards older, overweight students. That was my impression, anyway. Okay school but way overpriced...
I absolutely love Seton Hill University. At the beginning of my freshman year I was concerned that this wasn't the place for me but now I have no doubt in my mind that this is where I should be. Because it is a small school, you are able to develop better relationships with your professors. These relationships are important when you need extra help, a reference, or even simple advice. The environment is very nice because it is close to Downtown Greensburg and Downtown Pittsburgh, but it remains secluded on the hill. There are many lounges and quiet places on campus to go study or just get out of your dorm. There are also endless resources and activities to help you accomplish nearly anything you want. Being involved in certain clubs has allowed me to extend my learning beyond the classroom as well as network with peers, professors, and professionals.
