The LocationSeton Hall University is based in South Orange, NJ—under 20 miles from Manhattan. In other words, students here may find the best of both worlds—a friendly small town in New Jersey, and easy access to one of the biggest and most economically influential cities in the country, if not the world. As for South Orange itself, it’s got a ton of local character. Architecture ranges from historic to modern, from cottages to mansions. The streets are lined with gaslights unlike anything you’d find in most towns. There are an array of artistic and cultural venues, not to mention a park system. And, of course, easy access to New York City.

For example, they may be able to help you organize internships, and your classes may use technology and other experiences to bring real-world relevance.

- The school is full of many supportive people who genuinely care for each other. You just really need to join something that interests you and then you'll be able to find some great friends. People seem very chill for it being considered a top university. Definitely a calmer atmosphere compared to schools like Stanford and Berkeley.
- The university provides the best of both academics opportunities as well as extracurricular activities in order to help their students explore and/or grow their skills on a specific or variety of fields. Their goal is to get their students involved in what they love in order to grow and expand the students knowledge.
- Overall, I love being a student at USC. On campus, I am a research assistant, a newspaper writer, and a dancer on the competitive hip-hop team. I've met a wide variety of students at USC, some who astound me with their intelligence and hobbies. I love talking to my professors during their office hours. The downsides to being a USC student is that a lot of things are inordinately expensive, the tuition keeps rising (unnecessarily), and the area around it is not super nice.
