Every new student wants to succeed. Success is measured in many ways, but at Seton Hall University we envision a type of success where individuals are at their best socially and academically. The University aims to instill in its students a vision that involves forming students to be servant leaders in a global society.
The Freshman Studies Program, beginning its 26th year in Fall 2013, is an award-winning academic advising program. Vice President Gottlieb, Associate Dean Cunningham, along with other mentors in the Department, work to ensure that incoming freshmen experience immense personal and intellectual growth. This program is designed to assist first-year college students in clarifying their academic and career goals. Furthermore, the program also helps students master two other important tasks for college success: adjusting to life on a college campus and developing a social network. Freshman Studies uses three program elements to assist with these tasks. These elements are the academic adviser/mentor, the peer adviser and the University Life course.
