Seton Hall has the ideal location — close to all the action, yet not
engulfed by it. The University's suburban, 58-acre park-like campus
sits proudly within the picturesque town of South Orange, New Jersey.
South Orange provides small-town charm with tree-lined streets,
historic homes and quaint shops, as well as big-city opportunities with
New York City just a short 14 miles away.
Getting to New York is easy — just a quick ten minute stroll to the
town center and you can hop on the train and be in NYC's Penn Station
in just about 30 minutes. While you're in town, enjoy all South Orange
has to offer: diners and pizzerias, banks, pharmacies, Starbucks, Cold
Stone Creamery, Garden of Eden Marketplace, South Orange Performing
Arts Center, a movie theater, and so much more.
Our location gives you a tremendous edge when it comes to internship
and job placement opportunities. We take full advantage of the Big
Apple, the world's largest job market and the capitals of finance,
fashion, entertainment, art, publishing and international diplomacy.
And if all the advantage and opportunity of the Big Apple isn't enough,
New Jersey, one of the wealthiest states in the nation, is brimming
with opportunity too. Seton Hall's backyard boasts a powerhouse
corporate corridor of more than 50 Fortune 500 companies,
pharmaceutical giants and major corporations. For you this means
networking, internship and career opportunities.
More than 75 percent of Seton Hall students have an internship — or
two — on their resume before graduation, giving students experience at
leading companies like American Express, The Associated Press, United
Nations, Goldman Sachs, The New York Times, NBC, Prudential,
Sony Music, JP Morgan Chase, the State Department, Prudential and more.
We offer more than 15,000 internship opportunities, and over 75 percent
of our students have an internship or two on their resume before
graduation. Because of our stellar national reputation, more than 550
employers visit campus every year just to recruit our graduates,
including the Big Four accounting firms, ESPN, Barclay's Capital,
Johnson and Johnson, the FBI, Verizon and Prudential. This is just one
reason we boast a job placement rate that is about 20 percent higher
than the national average.
Career advantage is just one of the benefits of being close to NYC,
but let's not forget about the fun: ice skate at Rockefeller Center,
enjoy dim sum in Chinatown, take in a Broadway show, shop 'til you drop
on 5th Avenue, enjoy free concerts in Central Park, gallery hop in SOHO
or explore one of the city’s many museums. If you want an escape from
the city, visit the pristine New Jersey shoreline; camp, hike or bike
our many lakes, parks and lush forests, ride the rapids on the Delaware
River or experience Six Flags Great Adventure. Our student activities
office regularly organizes trips to major attractions and events – the
fun is never-ending!
