  • Those that dorm definitely have a lot more freedom than most commuters. All actions you take will be on the student. Unlike commuters, students that live on campus…

    There are a lot of options on campus. There is a main dining hall that has a ton of options. We have a cafe where you can get drinks and smaller snack foods. We have a commuter cafe where you can get pizza, salad, warps, burgers, fries etc. Lastly, and most important, we do have a Dunkin Donuts on campus which is great.

    The caf is much better than most other schools I saw on tours and there are lots of dining options including a Dunkin Donuts. In the caf, you can make your own food if you like to get creative, but they also have premade things.

    there are a few places to eat on campus and they had options for vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free, etc. however if you want more options you have to leave campus. also the freshman dorms don't have communal kitchens.

    Cafeteria food is not terrible, but after the first month you start getting sick of it because it is always the same.

    The Pirate Cove offers Starbucks while the Library has a Dunkin Donuts located on the second floor. For those with a meal plan, there are numerous options one can choose from in the cafeteria. The commuter cafeteria also has several options including a Build Your Own Burger station.

    Greek Life is a lot of fun! I spent my first year outside of an org and it was great and then sophmore year I joined. I can say that I had a great time both in and out of Greek life. It is an option for anyone interested, but it's not a mandatory thing to have a social life.

    I just joined greek life and it was the best decision I have made while at Seton Hall. You meet so many new people and widen your horizons.

    I love the Greek unity here. I am in a sorority, and I have at least one friend in every social Greek organisation. We all do a lot for the Seton Hall community, whether it's public representation, offering our volunteer efforts with SHU's Division of Volunteer Efforts, or giving back with our own philanthropies.

    Greek Life is constantly growing at Seton Hall and is a great way to meet new people and have more to do for fun! I always have something to do or someone to hang out with because of Greek life.

    Many are available and must have an actual mission. I believe that they are all required to give back by volunteering and such and must have a purpose. You cannot just party all day and live together.
