Seton Hall University

Since 1856, Seton Hall University has been a catalyst for leadership, developing the whole student, in mind, heart and spirit. Seton Hall combines the resources of a large university with the personal attention of a small liberal arts college. Its attractive suburban campus is only 14 miles outside of New York City, with the wealth of employment, internship, cultural and entertainment opportunities the city offers. Seton Hall students - who hail from all 50 states and 67 countries - choose from a wide range of majors, including communication, business, diplomacy, nursing and education. Seton Halls emphasis on academic excellence has led to a marked increase in the number of students and professors chosen for prestigious academic awards. In 2008, Annick Routhier-Labadie 08 became the Universitys first Rhodes Scholar. The number of students chosen for the Fulbright international educational exchange program has doubled, and recently the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Committee for the first time selected multiple Seton Hall students as finalists. In 2009 alone, five faculty members were selected to travel overseas on Fulbright grants. Their projects ranged from teaching documentary filmmaking in Jordan to leading interfaith dialogues in Slovenia. In 2010, Business Week ranked Seton Halls undergraduate business as eighth best in return on investment for private universities across the country. As the nations oldest diocesan Catholic university, Seton Hall embraces students of all races and religions, challenging each to better the world with integrity, compassion and a commitment to serving others.
