Seton Hall University was founded in 1856 and is New Jersey’s oldest Catholic school. It is located in South Orange, close to both re-invigorated urban Newark and the bucolic Jersey countryside. The school has slightly over 5,000 undergrads, who can choose among majors in Arts and Sciences, Business, Diplomacy, Education, Law, Medicine, Nursing, and Theology. The Seton Hall Pirates are well-known for their prowess in baseball and basketball, and those teams have sent scores to the professional ranks. Seton Hall’s motto is “Despite hazards, move forward.”
