What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice for students is to make a list of some of the things you believe would make their college experience successful (size of school, location, sports, clubs, interests, aspirations, etc.). Make sure the college you choose is a right fit for the type of person you are. Don't pick a college because your friends are going there. Study the colleges your interested in by searching through their website, visiting the college, speaking with current students, faculty, and alumni. Minimize your choices to at least 5 and apply. Anything is possible so don't be afraid to apply to any college. When your at the stage of choosing your final choice (make sure its at max. 3) make a list of the pros and cons of going to each of those colleges. Don't just make a decision without thinking about it. Give it time and rest on it. Talk to your parents or someone you can trust and ask them what they think. Ask a teacher, a counselor, an older sibling, a school coach, etc, and most important base the decision on what you really want not what someone else thinks is good for you. Follow your heart.

Dont let money be the issue that changes your mind about going to a specific College or University. If it is where you want to go go there. In the end it is going to be worth every penny you spend.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise anyone to attend a local, inexpensive college for your first two years to decide what you want to do with your life and get your core classes out of the way. This will also allow you to mature and get on track with your life before moving far from home. After this time the student will also be more equipt to determine which university is the right place for them to finish their studies at.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The school is currently changing, and right now the type of person to attend this school should be upper-middle class to wealthy, very social, but able to entertain themselves in a small town and teach themselves much of the material to excel in the courses.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Seton Hall is four miserable years of your life, that you really hope you eventually don't regret once you get your high paying job.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Go to the school and get really familiar with it before you decide to go there. Its not worth being absolutly miserable for four years of your life just to get a degree from a school that will sound better on paper.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Having to live here, and go to school here. Professors will often come to class late and unprepared, and scold students for the same behavior. 90% of classes are direct out of the text book. Administration is a joke, trying to get anything accomplished in under a few months is impossible. The only social activities are frat parties or hiding from RA's in your dorm. Everyone here jokes about being an alcoholic-not the l"ook how much I can drink kind," the "oh my god life is so terrible, why did I choose Seton Hall" kind.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If you have faith, it is important to completely trust God and ask him as well as believing that he will give you the best school. The best school may not necessarily mean the school that will be easy for you. There will be hardships such as finances, academics, social life but in the end, the right college will feel right when you are there and after you finish the year. Yet, it IS also important to think about you resources and compare it with the cost of the school. Students should be outgoing and participate in activities which they have a calling. If there is a club you want to join, join it! Don't hesitate to go to the meeting by yourself and don't let your worries keep you from doing what you want to do. Also, if there is something that you don't like (such as a club you don't want to be in anymore), don't do it. Stick to your intutions, and (if you have faith) hold onto God. Speak up and tell others how you feel. IN the end, they may want to listen to what you have to say.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The school costs so much money but the academic is not as challenging and rich in quality compared to my high school (it is about the same as my high school). Also, the school invests money in bringing students to the school, yet seem to put other things before thinking about the best for the students. Such an example is investing money in buildings rather than tightening security (because we live in a dangerous area).

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

While at school don't be afraid to get involved with a lot of things on campus. Its very important that you try a lot of different things so you can grow as a person and a student. As far as looking for the right school i'd say find a campus that feels like home because if you're not comfortable you're not going to be able to adjust to life on your own.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

the administration is completely awful and i would have to constantly fight with the people in the offices

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

How beautiful and intimate the campus is and how helpful all the students are its very interesting to me how the people on campus have a very nice community built

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Parents: Your child is going off to a school in which they will love to attend. You may want them to be near year but let them chose where they want to go. Students: Go to every college you applied, stay over a night and see what is going on without all the "neat" stuff they have planned out during the day. You then will see if you enjoyed yourself or it was just nothing. Most colleges love to glam up just to show off. Also never limit yourself on how many places you are interested in because they might be one that fits for you. One more thing, you may leave your parents house and think you do not need or need to listen to them but a call would be nice to check on them because hearing you progessing makes them feel proud and be behind you every step of the way you will make. With friends its always wise to know them first rather than blabbing your whole business to them.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing that I would consider about Seton Hall is the environment it has. It provides much help for students from counseling to tutoring in which is a great thing to have at school because we as students are faced with hard material that is hard for us to grasp even after the professor had talked about it more than twice in class and after. While students faces different things during their collegiate year such as death, depression, anxitey and so on. Also students that attends at Seton Hall seem to be open and welcome anyone to their groups.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A kind of person who may not attend to Seton Hall would be a person who is struggling to have money to pay for school, or a person who may have lose their sports scholarship. Nevertheless, there is a negative side to it also those who like to party and have fun instead of focusing on their academics which comes first, leaves the school. Who would not want to give Seton Hall a try? I did and I enjoy myself, I have become a different person than I was freshman year.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Buisness and Nursing is what Seton Hall is known for academically. Seton Hall is also known for the fire in Boland Hall where 3 students were killed.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell parents and students to try to visit the school. Also when applying to schools, even if an interview is not required definitely schedual one. If the student is far away from the school, most schools will do over the phone interviews. Try to get as many scholarships as possible, schools are getting expensive. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Students should take into consideration the price of the college, the location and the activity on campus.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I understood the Housing Department and the situations with roommates. When I had my problem with my roommate the Housing Department was not willing to help at all. I wish the school talk about security and how the students could go for problems such as school restraining orders.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

People do get mugged although rarely. But some of it is plain student stupidity like walking around with a wallet full of cash while singing along to alicia keys with your shiny new IPOD while you're totally oblivious that you've been walking in the dark for 2 minutes and that your IPOD is like moths to a flame. While I would agree that the Stillman School of Business places the utmost importance on intergrity and professionalism, I believe we are categorized as such due to the "in your face" branding of "Stillman Students." However, despite the large modern building and the private funding from prominent business alumni, we are your run-of-the mill student, with the exception that business credits actually costs more than general university credits. It is an amazing school that develops well rounded people who enter every industry worldwide.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

People get mugged all the time. Business students give off the "business student vibe."
