Whether it be through the expansion of attending students each year or through witnessing construction on campus, we all notice that Seton Hall is growing in all sorts of ways. While students may feel differently about certain changes, the university is implementing such improvements with the overall community in mind.
Seton Hall is expanding in many ways to accommodate the increasing undergraduate student population. The newly renovated cafeteria is a prime example of this appeal to students, taking consideration of the extra space needed to accommodate more people. In addition to this change, Seton Hall is also expanding by creating another campus in Nutley and Clifton, New Jersey for the new School of Medicine as well as the existing College of Nursing and School of Health and Medical Sciences. The goal is for the new school to be welcoming students by Fall 2018.
Something else students can look forward to by 2018, as early as this upcoming January, includes the new Welcome Center. The building will not only accommodate visitors and admissions, but it will also accommodate students by housing resources including event space, lecture rooms capable of fitting up to 750 students, a 50-spot parking garage beneath the building, among other student resources.
While the construction noise and inconvenience can often be an annoyance to students, the finished product will surely be worth it, especially considering these current projects will soon be finished and able to be enjoyed to their full capacity.
On another note, Seton Hall truly seems to value student feedback. This can be witnessed through feedback and satisfaction surveys sent out at the end of each term for classes and resources. Gourmet Dining Services (GDS) even has a phone number where students can text food recommendations.
In the long scope, the university is looking to improve and renovate other areas on campus as well such as the University Center and Mooney Hall. Unfortunately, those benefits may only be experienced by future students, but on a lighter note, it is uplifting to know Seton Hall is looking forward and always seeking to improve facilities for the better interest of the community.
