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!

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.
Overall I have had a good experience at Seton Hill University. I am studying Exercise Science and a member of the men's soccer team and have loved every moment on campus. I come from a small town in rural West Virginia and knew I wanted to go to a small school outside a big city. The atmosphere at Seton Hill University is different than anything I have been a part of before. The student diversity is from all over the world, and the students and faculty are really bring into making an impact in the community to help us want to help our communities back home and where ever we go after we graduate and make an impact on the world.
