The campus is beautiful. The class sizes are small so there is one on one time to learn. The professors are amazing at what they do.

Seton Hill is a great school. With a variety of majors and a strong art and music department, Seton Hill has something to offer every type of student. Also the dining hall serves great food.

Seton Hill is a small, beautiful, castle like, and close-knit school that wants to see its students succeed. The students and faculty are all open minded and supportive of everyone. Do not let the Catholic affiliation run you off, everyone is accepted and nothing is forced on you.
