What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
With a beautiful campus and welcoming community, I know that Seton Hall is the only school for me. The ratio of professors to students is small, so I know I'm always receiving the care and attention of my professors if it's ever necessary. And the opportunity to visit the city or finding internships there is so easily achievable because of the train station being within walking distance.
Ciara from Livingston, NJ
I would recommend this university to anyone! They have great resources for the students attending in order to help them figure out what type of career to strive for. This university is also very prestigious so it will help give credibility to your degree for when you go out into the work force.
Barbara from Belleville
Seton Hall has extraordinary opportunities and has given me a home away from home. The faculty and the classes are enjoyable yet challenging as well. Seton Hall has amazing science facilities and is constantly looking to improve.
Victoria from Newark, NJ
My experience at Seton Hall has been great. You get the experiences of both a large university and small school, but it's the perfect size. The location is great because of it's close proximity to NYC, which offers great internships opportunities, as well as a place for fun!
Marisa from Chepachet, RI
Seton Hall University is overall a great campus. It combines intellectual endeavor with a solid Catholic background. Also, there is always help and support, and you get to meet interesting people.
Vincent from Cliffside Park, NJ
The campus is beautiful, a relatively good size, and welcoming. There's always something to do whether its a first 56 activity or just chilling in the Pirate's Cellar. There's always somewhere you can go or someone you can go to when you are in need of help.
