Seton Hill University Reviews
Review Seton Hill University
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.
Almost all males at Seton Hill play a sport. sports range from wrestling to lacrosse, football, baseball, and basketball. The baseball team is very good. I am a cheerleader and enjoy watching both boys and firs basketball! However, football is not the best. We play at a local high school field. There's great fitness center for non-athletes. Athletes have their own workout areas such as the field house. We also have an equestrian team! Athletes can be found everywhere on campus and some students are even involved in multiple sports.
For any athletes that are considering coming here, here is an honest review from an athlete after my first semester. I am a girl and I'm on one of the sports teams that has their season in the fall. Personally, I am really happy with my decision to attend SHU. Yes, it is a small campus. That is probably the biggest complaint I hear from people. "This is so small" "It's like high school" "Everybody knows everything about everyone". It is only like high school if you choose to act like you're still in high school. Sure, if you want to gossip about everyone and actually care about what other people do, then yes, it is going to be very much like high school. But if you stay out of the drama and focus on yourself, you will be much happier. This campus definitely is athletes vs. non-athletes, but as an athlete, we kind of get the better end of the stick, being completely honest. All of the athletes kind of understand each other because we all chose to attend this school for our sport. We all support each other at games and attend a lot of each other's. For parties, it is usually athlete houses off campus that host them. However, they are not ONLY athlete parties, a lot of non-athletes come but it is never a problem. It is a dry campus, but our new president is trying to change it to a wet campus, which means alcohol will be allowed on campus for those who are 21 and up. You'll be really good friends with your fellow freshmen on your respective team and most likely other teams as well. I like the smaller campus feel because you are actually SOMEBODY instead of a random face among 20,000 others. As an athlete, a lot of people, even the non-atheltes know you, so its nice. I would recommend coming here! You meet a lot of great people and have a lot of fun!
