"I cannot recommend going to Seton Hall. I graduated from this school years ago and I never got an interview or job as a result of graduating from Seton Hall. The school does not do anything to help you get a job and the career center is pathetic. The career center is staffed mainly with students who have never had a real job in life and have no contacts to help you get a job. The jobs they have listed are mainly entry-level low paying jobs. Don't believe me? Ask to see the jobs they have listed in the career center and you'll see how awful the jobs are that they have listed. And today the school costs more than $50,000 a year for tuition and room and board. It does not make any financial sense to spend over $200,000 for a Bachelor's degree that only gets you a job making $35,000 or less. You are way better off financially going to a state school and saving your money especially since there is no real advantage to graduating from Seton Hall."

"Seton Hall University is a school with a great reputation. However, it is up to you to use it to your advantage. it is very important to create a network with fellow students and teachers. Take advantage of the various support programs and advisers that are available to you. Get involved in the school and use it to develop yourself. I believe that it is a great school for business programs, heath care and nursing. It is world renown and there are large number of notable alumni take advantage of everything the school has to offer you. it will be what you make it"

"I believe Seton Hall University would be a great fit for anyone who truly wants to learn. The academics at this university have really gone beyond my expectations; the curriculum and professors here are the epitome of quality education. The coursework is challenging in the sense that it really does push you to excel in your academics while being guided by caring professors."

"Seton Hall University has amazing opportunities for its student to gain experience personally and professionally. For instance, Seton Hall encourages the students to not only excel in their studies, but to also be a leader and give back to the community. Leadership development courses and seminars are offered throughout the year. The school also take great pride in recognizing student leaders and their accomplishments."

"My time at Seton Hall was a roller coaster. There were some aspects of the program I was very grateful for and others that I felt really needed improvement. My Diplomacy professors were all very fascinating and well credentialed individuals. I enjoyed my time studying under their guidance. I did feel that as an undergraduate program the coursework was not truly able to develop. I was very fortunate that I secured an internship with an NGO in partnership with the United Nations and was exposed to a career in International Development. I was given UN Security clearance and had chances to meet ambassadors to different countries all over the world. I felt that Seton Hall was lacking harshly in its administrative support for students. Any time myself or other students needed to file paper work, ask for guidance or request information there was never a clear path or answer. I particularly recall having to visit the administrative office every day for two weeks to get my financial aid settled during my final year. My father had passed away changing a status in my financial needs and in addition to what was already a very traumatic experience, I had to advocate for myself several times a week in order to complete my year. I walked away from Seton Hall with experience and knowledge I am grateful for but I do not feel that for the price of tuition I truly received what I was paying for."

"Seton Hall University, specifically the School of Diplomacy and International Relations, has equipped me with the instrumental skills of communication, networking and hard work. The professors are working professionals, oftentimes at the UN and similar impressive organizations. They provide unique insight and personal anecdotes for their students, allowing us to grasp the realities of real-world diplomacy. Students are even invited to UN events that are typically closed to the public. Diplomacy courses are held once a week for 2.5 hours to accommodate the busy schedules of the professors. However, this set-up allows plenty of time for the students to complete heavy coursework. The rigor of the classes is a long-term benefit that, when coupled with the expertise of the instructors, leaves students well prepared for the work force. Even before graduation, students have access to many opportunities in politics, NGOs and organizations of their interest through internships. Seton Hall works with each student to find and tailor an internship to his/her liking. Being in the School of Diplomacy requires 2 credit internships to graduate. As a 5 year BS/MA student enrolled in both graduate and undergraduate courses, I am currently completing my senior internship requirement. However, it is no typical internship. I have worked both with the United Methodist Church Global Missions office and Seton Hall in order to form an internship specifically for me. This opportunity has taken me to Iquique, Chile, where I am working as an English Teachers assistant for grades 5-12. The incredible flexibility of Seton Hall has allowed me to gain international experience, work with children and take one step further towards my goal of a career at UNICEF. I highly recommend SHU School of Diplomacy to any prospective students."

"The School of Diplomacy has great things going for it, but a few downfalls. The professors are all prominent in their areas of studies and very well rounded, connected, and inspiring. However, a few are not the best teachers and have difficulty connecting real-world experience with undergraduate students in the classroom. The school has great connections to the UN and hosts many useful, informative events year-round. An area of improvement would be in preparing students for real world jobs and not focusing so much on theoretical approaches; more practical skill development should be ingrained in the curriculum."

"Seton Hall University is a small school, and it creates a very small community, particularly in the diplomacy program. While this means you will be consistently exposed to the same people each year, it also means there is consistent support for one another among peers, professors and faculty. There are consistent emails about dozens of internships in a variety of fields, and open communication between career advisers and students who are willing to take advantage of their advice. The diplomacy program is geared towards preparing students for a career in the United Nations, almost to a determent, but the diplomatic theories we learn are applicable to other careers if we take time to apply them creatively."

"Being a prospective student can be a daunting task with all the colleges and universities to choose from. As a transfer student looking to start a second career, choosing the right college was easy for me. My criteria included whether or not my major was part of the curriculum, location, cost and ratings based on alumni/alumna. I truly loved Seton Hall University because of the teaching staff. Achieving academic excellence is no easy feat but with a supportive teaching staff to spend extra time through additional meetings it becomes more attainable. Seton Hall University was a very inviting campus with an overall friendly student body. Attending meetings, study sessions and discussions among fellow peers did not feel so lonely. Seton Hall University made it very easy to thrive both educationally and socially with the right attitude. I would definitely recommend Seton Hall University to any fellow peer interested in pursuing a career in the healthcare industry based on my own personal experiences that spanned four years."

"Nearly all of the chemistry department professors are very good educators. There are plenty of opportunities to get hands-on research experience in any field of chemistry. On the down side, the college administration can be a mess and the graduate assistant pay is very low."
