An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “Freshman year I conducted research with a faculty member, and we used expensive, high-tech equipment that most students don’t even have access to until graduate school. This and a recommendation from my professor helped me get my internship freshman year at Merck.”

    • Ben Starke
      Biochemistry, Wayne, New Jersey
  • “Going to El Salvador on a mission trip was the culmination of my Seton Hall experience. It allowed me to bring together everything I learned about servant leadership, about giving back and loving my community. It was an opportunity I will never forget.”

    • Kylie Lan Tumiatti
  • “Graduating with a job offer from MTV is a dream come true. I owe it all to the support of Seton Hall’s Career Center and my four internship experiences.”

    • Tiffany Knighten
      Public Relations & Journalism, Los Angeles, California
  • “It was so amazing to sign a full-time job offer by the end of my junior year. It was my dream to join a Big Four accounting firm, and I achieved it, thanks to the opportunities and experiences I was exposed to at Seton Hall.”

    • Andrew Aguilera
  • “Something unique about Seton Hall has been my one-on-one relationships with faculty. I don’t think I could get that anywhere else—because of the small class sizes and discussion-based classes. My professors really want to hear what I have to say. This has helped me so much.”
