"I toured 5 universities including Seton Hill University and what drew me toward this small Catholic university was its size and the community. I did not want to feel like "just another student" in a vast sea of students. Seton Hill was its own community and through it, I was able to make meaningful and lasting relationships. Students and teachers know you by name, always say hi to you or inquire about your day. I missed class one morning because I had a cold my Freshmen year and a classmate 2 years ahead of me brought me cans of soup. We became friends after that! The classes were small, perhaps no more than twenty, which made it easier to participate and be heard. Advisors actually advise and offer guidance and support, as well as expose you to new opportunities and experiences.The highlights of my time at Seton Hill was, of course, Christmas on the Hill, Seton Hills annual ball where the dining hall is decked out in Christmas decorations that transform it into a winter wonderland. Seton Hill staff and professors dress up and serve students dressed in their best formal attire a three course meal. Second was during exam season. Midnight Brunch was where the dining hall opened from midnight to 2am where staff and professors cooked a massive array of food, as well as provided games and other de-stressors. One year, they had an Oxygen Bar! Every year members of the local churches would come to Midnight Brunch and give out Study Bags which included fully sharpened pencils, pens, index cards, an assortment of candies, and sometimes herbal teas.Lastly, It is because of the guidance of one of the librarians at Seton Hill that I am pursuing my Master's degree today."

"Small university with caring staff. Your advisers genuinely care about your success. With such a small campus, you really bond with your community; I was brought soup by a classmate when I missed classes due to a cold. Students will go out of their way to greet you in passing."

"The MBA program is a mess. Some courses are well structured while others only offer busy work that lack any real learning objective. This is true for the Human Resource Management course. Grades are not posted in a timely manor to allow you to correct any issues. Would avoid the MBA program."

"Seton Hill's Marriage and Family therapy program not only gave me the tools I need to succeed as an effective therapist, but they have also given me insight into who I am as a person. It can be scary coming into a graduate program, not knowing anyone and having to navigate how to structure your time in graduate school. It can also be stressful when it's your second year in and you need to balance your classes, internship and clients with your sanity and self-care simultaneously. At Seton Hill, my experience has been that my professors and my colleagues have welcomed me with open arms to give me the secure foundation I needed to know I had support through out the program and that I wasn't alone. Your professors and classmates become invested in you from the minute you enter the program and encourage you every step of the way. I had no idea I'd be leaving graduate school with not just a degree, but with a family. I am so grateful that I am becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist at Seton Hill because the graduate program at this school has changed my life for the better and I am a better person because of this program."

"I really loved Seton Hill. I was awarded enough scholarship money that it was cheaper than the public colleges I applied to. As a musician, the audition process was easy and i was not made to feel stupid because I couldn't sight-sing or read advanced theory (I'm from a small town with no opportunities). I was admitted to the music program that day. The professors knew all of us and all of our friends. The classes were small and we all became very close because there were only 100 music majors total. I actually got experience in the classroom sophomore year, while many other schools don't let students into the field until student teaching. I was able to teach at a variety of schools with differing demographics and income levels. I really loved my school and I still miss it. Go Griffins!"

"I feel that college is almost necessary, or a trade school to make a livable wage. So many high school graduates are pushed to go to school, because that is what is expected, but I think that other options need to be looked at before rushing off to school. College is a huge expense. Interest rates are pretty high and not all jobs pay well at the start. Get as much experience in the field you want to or think you want to be in. Any volunteering, internships or work experience is a plus. When I was applying to jobs so many enter level jobs wanted experience but how do you get that when you are just starting out was what I wanted to know. Maybe before even starting college or your career path, see if you can job shadow or volunteer to see if the field you want to pruse. Someone recently told me that this about my own career path, you have no experience in being a physician assistant, you just have the idea that you would like it. You need to get there out in the field first to see if you would even want to do that job."

"Back to school. An adult returning to finish what I once started. Nights and weekends. Simply put... truly one of the better decisions I ever made in my life. All in all, I liked the school, the professors and certainly my classmates. Oh, and yes... for a guy that 'thought' he knew it all... I ended up learning a multitude of things, not the least of which being the fact I 'did not' know it all prior to going back to school! I am now a multi-published author and owe quite a bit of that 'drive and ability' to having gone back to college, at Seton Hill."

"Seton Hall University offers a highly competitive and respected among licensed therapists program in occupational therapy. Classes are small and the faculty members are approachable to maximize learning. The program does lack up to date teaching methods of EMR necessary for today's medical field."

"Great School for future Physician Assistants. You will leave the program and feel well prepared to practice medicine compared to most your peers. Tuition is expensive, but worth it in the end."

"I absolutely love the art therapy program at Seton Hill. The staff is small, and that allows a closeness to form between staff and students. I would like to see more chances for the formation of connections between the undergraduates and the graduate students. I find both pros and cons with the fact that many of my courses are part of the counseling and marriage and family departments. I like the chance to educate and work with students who might not know about art therapy, but there are times when it feels like the information needs to be, or could be more inclusive of the art therapy field. All in all, I love the program, and have learned so much about art therapy and myself."

"Love the school and the class. I am an on-line e-only student. Courses are short and a lot of work packed into short amount of time."
