| Seton Hall University is a joke. I hate it here so much. I dont even know where to begin. The only good thing about this school is the campus, it is a good size campus, i can get to my classes in five minutes or less. |
Everything else about this school is horrible. All they want is your MONEY!
Lets talk about the fact that they are building a huge ice bath for the basketball team but not doing anything for the student body. OUR BASKETBALL TEAM SUCKS! Instead of building an ice bath, maybe they should build another dorm room since they ran out of rooms for people to dorm for next semester!!! and maybe they shouldn't accept more students than they can house (being greedy).
Most of the professors here suck, I feel like i'm not even being challenged like I'm suppose to be. The professors or either extremely easy or extremely hard. There's not an in-between.
EVERYONE goes home on the weekends EVERYONE! it is literally a ghost-town on the weekends with nothing to do, you will have NO social life what so ever here. Only 3 frats throw parties and youre lucky if you choose the better out of three and towards the end of the semester there are no parties, everyone just gives up and goes to NJIT and Rutgers.
The guest policy is shit. It literally takes 30 minutes to sign someone in. and don't be late in turning their guest pass in or they will come knocking on your door.
The cafe food is shit. same shit different day. ANd they go weeks without refilling the ice machines and drinks.Seriously dont come here, they try to glorify the school to make you think it is the best school ever. IT IS NOT! EVERYONE TRANSFERS AFTER THEIR FIRST YEARI would have had more fun at a community college shit i should have gone to Hogwarts.

| To be blunt and honest, Seton Hall is a glorified community college. To go over the basics, the surrounding area is a joke. Don't expect to come into a college-town environment, or anything close to it. The crime rate, and rate at which students get mugged/robbed is alarming. Now this is all off campus and generally happens to students who don't think in an appropriate manner, but newark is in spitting distance so it's going to happen. The food here is a JOKE. The cafeteria's food is consistently the same thing everyday. There is a Dunkin Donuts, a Nathan's, a Pizzeria, and a "college cafe" type restaurant but they all cost $ and we all know how that works. The dorms are....bullshit. You feel trapped and confined rather then living in a space. There are not even water fountains in the dorms, that should say it all. You have to pay for laundry which is bullshit in its own, but you have to use "pirategold" which is like the School's Debit card, not to be confused with "piratebucks" ... it's a pain in the ass really. Classes are small and average, typical stuff. Good professors and horrible ones. The social life is a JOKE. Mainly because, starting Friday morning the campus is a literal ghost town. Take that seriously because it certainly is the truth. Parties take place on a thursday, if you're lucky that one exists in the first place that is. Generally, a frat will throw one but generally it's only thrown by one of 2 frats and it's all the same shit each time, nothing special. Expect to wait 10 minutes hoarding around a keg just to get a beer, that's just how they are. That all is of course, if one of those 2 frats decides to throw a party which is less likely to happen as the year progresses. Now, take all of this from a current/soon to be ex-pledge to one of the frats here. It is the exact same thing, with the exact same people, on exactly the same nights. Keg, pong (if you're lucky), keg's empty, go back to campus. Again, Seton Hall is a glorified community college that is EXTREMELY expensive and certainly not worth it. The true, only good thing about Seton Hall is it does in fact look very glamorous and shiny on your resume... for whatever reason. I am transferring at the end of this semester, take my advice seriously. I blew off listening to people tell and warn me about SHU, and i certainly regret it. |

|Not so bright|
| Surrounding City 5.6 and Safety 5.2!? Are you serious? Maybe if you're comparing the surroundings to Somalia it would get a 5. People get robbed around campus weekly at all times of the year including car jacked so 5 is extremely generous in that regard.|
There are a few excellent professors at SHU but that is about it. Many of them are just terrible, unclear, and unhelpful.Would not come to this school if I had to make the decision again.
