I went through the English department at Seton Hall; every professor was excellent and knowledgeable and was very available to their students. Professors took the time to get to know every student that they had and went the extra mile to help students learn. The surrounding town of South Orange is dreadfully boring and there's not much for students to do--fact is, the town seems to hate the fact that it is home to a university. Make friends who stay on campus on the weekends--it's a bit of a suitcase school--or you'll find you're very lonely on Friday and Saturday nights.
If you live in New Jersey and aren't going into nursing then look to go to another in state college or university. The campus is small and gated. The community around the college is ghetto. The school does not care about: commuters, how over priced the cheap laptops are, or funding any type of intresting student events. Also you have to pay to see your own basketball team.
Seton Hall has alot of great opportunities to offer but not enough that I would do it all over again. I needed to attend a college close to home and thus chose Seton Hall. I could not whole heartily reccommend this college because of the quality of teachers. In all four years I only found 4 teachers who I thought actually enjoyed their jobs and cared. If I had to go to college again I would go somewhere adventurous like California or Colorado, not South Orange , NJ. The college is in a very bad area and there are very limited outdoor activities.
Pros, it's close to New York City and they have a great radio station. Cons? Teacher quality, surrounding area, gross dorms, and the off campus life very limited.
