“I transferred to Seton Hall from Syracuse because I wanted to be closer to NYC. And even though I was also accepted to NYU, I chose Seton Hall because it felt more caring and like home. It was a great decision; I got to be a Youth Ambassador at the UN, study abroad in Italy, and intern with the World Food Program. The quality of the faculty and the tremendous opportunities I’ve had at Seton Hall have been amazing.”
— Cara Richardson

“I transferred to Seton Hall with almost 90 credits, and even though I only spent a year here before completing my degree, I was able to intern for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Piers Morgan Tonight at CNN. A few weeks before I graduated, I already had a job at CNN.”
