| There are too many problems with the way the school is run, but I have always felt welcomed here, and the road leading into school feels like the road home. No particular road, just a road that is leading you home. That's why I decided to come to Seton Hill. It's a well-known school and everyone always compliments me on what a great school I have gotten into, even if it isn't the best in education and dealing with Financial Aid, Student Accounts, and Residence Life is a pain in the you-know-where. Another great thing is that the religious aspect of the school is not forced on anyone other than one religious course and one theology course. This DOES NOT entail strictly Catholicism, this envelopes everything from Hebrew Scriptures to Jesus class.|
I have my thoughts about leaving SHU, even still today, but I wouldn't, not to mention that I couldn't because most of my credits wouldn't transfer to other schools anyway because it's a liberal arts school. This doesn't mean Democratic. This means all-encompassing. For those of you who don't know, that's exactly what companies want these days.
Another thing that I noticed that SHU has which many other schools (surprisingly) don't have is our CareerWorks office which helps all students work on their resumes, internships, and whatever other type of help we may need.Oh and lastly, above all else, I've never had so many opportunities like I do here. Right now as I type this, I am the Vice President of the SHGA and have been in more clubs and organizations than I could ever dream of. And the thing I have found more than anything else is that the relationships I've made here are ones to last a lifetime.

| I went to SHU and graduated with a degree in Poli Sci. I can't complain about this school at all--my department and advisor were great to me--Dr. Michael Cary is the best professor/mentor ever! If you are serious contender for graduate school, preparation as an undergrad at SHU is worth every penny. Yeah, its pricey but the attention you get here is priceless. Your professors care and know you. You will also learn a lot and the students are also very well-read and smart. Yeah, you may run into a few dummies here and there, but you'll find that at most schools. At Seton Hill, the majority of the students have huge egos and want to succeed--and believe me, you want to be around those types--it breeds success! Most of my fellow classmates have gone onto do great things. Yes, the campus is boring--but you can make your own fun up on that hill--my friends and I always did. Final point, if you are serious about your chances at grad school go to SHU--hands down. |
