Seton Hall University is a private institution that was founded in 1856. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 5,817, its setting is suburban, and the campus size is 58 acres. It utilizes a semester-based academic calendar. Seton Hall University's ranking in the 2016 edition of Best Colleges is National Universities, 123. Its tuition and fees are $36,926 (2014-15).


Seton Hall University is a private, Catholic school in the small town of South Orange, New Jersey, about 15 miles from New York City. Also known simply as SHU, the university offers more than 60 majors in eight schools, with graduate programs in the Stillman School of Business, the school of education and the law school, which is home to a very highly ranked health care law program. Seton Hall students can make the most of their degrees by working with the career center, which connects them to internship and job opportunities.

According to the school, the vast majority of SHU graduates find work in the New York or New Jersey area. But before they get that far, SHU students can explore more than 100 campus organizations, Greek life or recreational sports. More serious athletes can try out for one of the more than 15 Seton Hall Pirates varsity sports teams, which compete in the NCAA Division I Big East Conference. Notable alumni of SHU include Max Weinberg, the longtime drummer in Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band and the band leader on the television show "Late Night with Conan O’Brien."


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 Hall's 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 University's 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 Hall's undergraduate business as eighth best in return on investment for private universities across the country. As the nation's 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.
