I went to Seton Hill for one semester.
I enjoyed my time but found that the school was a bit too far from my home.
Although I enjoyed, there of course were some things wrong with the school as is with any school.
One that was very difficult for me to understand was that they told me on the tour that our campus food was some of the best. I often struggled to find food that I liked for meals and found myself eating the same meals multiple days in a row.
I also was frustrated because, they only showed me the nicer of the dorms and I was put into the one they don't show you. That building only had 4 functioning washing machines and four functioning dryers. The wifi was always off and on. You didn't know which days it would cooperate with you. They also had low functioning AC and heat so when weather began to get crazy, I had to have a fan going 24/7.
I enjoyed the staff on campus and everyone I interacted with was very nice and the PAC staff are wonderful people!

Seton Hill University does a great job of adapting to unprecedented times and ensuring all the students feel safe and comfortable on campus. In non-Covid times, Seton Hill is an even more fun place to go to school, the professors are very approachable, class sizes are comparable to a typical high school classroom of 20-30 students and they have lots of activities to always keep you on your feet and involved such as karaoke nights and foam dances!
I absolutely love this school. From the minute I took a tour, I felt so welcomed and loved and I was still a high school senior. It is expensive but the education you are receiving is worth every penny. The Office of Residence Life works so hard to make the campus fun and lively for it's students. The sports team are so rigorous and dedicated to both the classroom and the field. There are parties that happen off campus so it doesn't interfere with those who dislike them. The class sizes are not very big which makes it the ideal learning experience and the professors actually know your name and will say hello to you in the halls. I highly recommend looking into this wonderful university. The only way is up!
