"Ever since I first stepped onto Seton Hall’s campus I always had a support network of people who were willing to help me. That was really important to me because I wanted small classes and I didn’t want to be one out of thousands of people. I feel that is exactly what I have gotten at Seton Hall. I’ve always felt this connection with my adviser and my professors and felt like they weren’t here because it was their job, but because they really cared and wanted me to succeed."
