The university is featured in the 2015 edition of the education services company’s annual college guide, according to a press release from the university.
SHU was first recognized in 1996 as a “Best College” by The Princeton Review, which includes roughly 15% of the nation’s 2,500 four-year colleges. The guide provides a profile of the schools which include comments from student surveys.
Some comments from Seton Hall students include praise for the “technologically connected” campus that “completely dedicates itself to its undergrads”; one said, “the school offers all the great things that come with a private education,” according to the release.
“Seton Hall is honored to be named among the best colleges in the nation,” said Alyssa McCloud, Seton Hall’s vice president of enrollment management in the release. “This recognition adds to the long list of things we have to be proud of including our nearly two dozen Fulbright recipients within the last few years, an employment rate almost 20% higher than the national average and being recently named among the top five universities in the nation for providing internship opportunities. We offer our students the opportunity to excel in a rigorous academic environment with close faculty mentorship in small classroom settings. Seton Hall is a leading Catholic university on the rise and we are all very proud Pirates!”
Rob Franek, Princeton Review’s senior vice present and publisher, cited SHU’s “outstanding academics” as the main reason for its inclusion in the guide.
A Catholic university established in 1856, Seton Hall University is home to nearly 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students and offers more than 90 majors.
