A senior’s advice to appreciate every moment at SHU
Regardless of the university an individual chooses to attend, I have noticed they will always find a flaw that is seemingly the end of the world.
I chose Seton Hall and I rarely ever regret my decision even if there are a few aspects that may get under my skin.
Even though I am graduating in May and I could not be more excited, I am more than proud to call Seton Hall my second home. Undoubtedly, the good qualities that Seton Hall possesses outweigh the bad ones.
As if “senioritis” has not been enough to consider procrastinating with my school work, now the spring weather is growing more enjoyable.
My favorite part about this university is when the students sit on the green and socialize. It is something to look forward to in the warmer months and it brings the students together.
If I was a prospective student on a tour, seeing the Seton Hall community on The Green would seal the deal for me.
Several students believe that the warm weather is a distraction to classes and it will cause them to slack off. If you have the right mindset, you will be just fine. Bring a tent or a hammock along with an iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts and you will be sure to get your work done. Sitting on the green during my free time is my motivation to complete my assignments.
Even though it would be wonderful to be granted with this warm weather all year round, I think it is the perfect amount of time for an end of the year celebration without over-doing it.
I am not the biggest fan of winter weather but I still believe that Seton Hall’s location offers a happy medium.
During the long winter months, snow days around campus provide a joyous and cheerful feeling for students. There is free food in the cafeteria and you can participate in a snow ball fight or build a snow man.
I am aware that Seton Hall is not the only university to offer similar amenities and it is not the school for everyone. Similar to human beings, Seton Hall possesses its own unique characteristics.
If it is the school for you, my advice is to appreciate every moment and get involved as much as you can. My time at Seton Hall is coming to an end and I would do anything to stay another four years.
