What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
For those students here in New Jersey, you will get help from the state, the university, and I encourage you to apply for EOP. I am an EOP student and it truly helps you in terms of refining and not losing the skills you have obtained in high school and you obtain a grant from them that truly helps you out no matter how small it is, every little bit helps. For those not in Jersey, you still obtain scholarships and grants from the university and you can transfer into the EOP program if you were in an EOP of EOF program at your state. Dorming is really amazing, I highly encourage it since you meet new people and new friendships will grow and soon you become the best of friends. In my dorm building, everyone knows me and I know them, its an amazing relationship we have because we get along and we all know each and we just have fun. Seton Hall is definitely a great place, with professors that help you and willing to answer your questions and staff all over campus that will help you if you search for it and it is not hard to do.

Learn basic cooking skills! Although the caf offers many choices, they may not always serve something you're craving. Luckily, we have many make-it-yourself stations in which students can create their own meals, from pizza, to omelettes, to stir fry!
Ciara from Livingston, NJ
Freshmen year is the year students tend to Wild Out. Going into any school you will face this. Just control yourselves. Your freshmen year is the most important; it is the foundation of a great GPA to begin.
Stephanie from Hillside, NJ
Always make an appointment for anything the school is horrible with walk ins. Sometime thy make you wait forever just to tell you they cant help you. Be outgoing get to know people

Work hard to get high SAT scores because it will ultimately determine how much scholarship money that you receive from the university. Also, try to be as socially active as possible without making you grades suffer. The experience looks good on your resume.
Barbara from Belleville
Sleep before you come to college. You won't get much while you're here.
Victoria from Newark, NJ
Definitely apply early to get the best possible financial aid before the scholarship deadlines pass!
Marisa from Chepachet, RI
If you're not ready for Seton Hall, I would recommend going to community college first and then transfer to Seton Hall.
Vincent from Cliffside Park, NJ
Make lots of friends and network, you never know what the people around you can provide for you. Give everything a chance, especially in the beginning because the little problem some things wont seem as problem some once your settled in.
