“I love everything about Seton Hall. The classes are small and the faculty are so friendly and helpful; they really care about you. This is a great community. I feel so welcome here. My roommate Liz made me feel at home right away; we go into town for ice cream, talk all night, and hang out on campus together. Plus, I love that New York City is only 30 minutes away and the train from campus is so easy. My friends and I go into NYC all the time and have lots of fun exploring.”

“My internship advisor was so supportive and encouraging; she helped me with my résumé, presentation, and networking skills and connected me with two amazing internship experiences: one at the US Indian Chamber of Commerce, where I helped launch Starbucks’s entry into India, and the other at the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations, where I was able to serve as a delegate to the UN and negotiate on behalf of India. Seton Hall definitely helped me build an excellent résumé. The opportunities I received at Seton Hall have really given me an edge and made me competitive for my next chapter as I pursue my graduate degree at Oxford and for my future career aspiration to join India’s foreign service.”
