The Personal Touch at Seton Hall University

Shu_apr09_1478low Personal interaction is the highlight of a visit to Seton Hall University. According to Whitney Vitale, associate director of admissions, “It's the level of personal attention that make our tours unique.” 

Seton Hall University is located in South Orange, New Jersey, just 14 miles from Manhattan. The 58-acre campus is home to about 10,000 students (including 5,300 undergraduates and 4,500 graduate students) who choose from over 60 majors in eight schools. 

While visiting, prospective students meet with at least three current students: one at the receptionist desk,  one during  the information session and one who leads the guided tour. And, every student receives a Seton Hall drawstring tote bag upon arrival containing information about the university as well as the contact information for their admissions counselor.

The 30 minute information session is led by both an admissions counselor and a student and is followed by the student-led tour. Don't be surprised if the president of the university stops the tour to say hello and welcome everyone to campus. When the tour ends, prospective students can meet with their admissions counselor, ask questions or meet a current student who is from the subject area or major the prospect is considering.

Vitale encourages even more interaction if the visiting student desires. “Getting questions answered and getting a feel for the campus community are two main reasons to visit a campus. If a student would like to meet with a faculty member or see a particular area of campus, such as the radio station, a current student will walk them over to their desired location. We want you want to make sure Seton Hall will be a place you enjoy for the next four years.”
