Seton Hill University is located just east of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in Greensburg, a lively city of museums, concert halls and about 15,000 residents. Student living has been a staple of the Greensburg community since 1885, when Seton Hill was founded by the Sisters of Charity order of the Catholic church as a women’s college. During the interceding years, the school welcomed men to classrooms and student housing, achieved university status in 2002, and made headlines in 2010 with a technology plan to provide all full-time students with an iPad, and all incoming freshmen with a MacBook. As the surrounding community changed as well, evolving in areas to support the student lifestyle, students have continued to rent off campus housing in the city.
Today, about 2,100 young scholars - the majority of them undergraduates - live in Seton Hill student housing. Undergraduate students may choose from academic programs in five divisions: Visual and Performing Arts, Social Sciences, Natural and Health Sciences, Humanities and Education. Off campus housing at Seton Hill is a big draw for graduate students, especially those who seek to study one of the university’s niche areas. The school offers nine graduate programs, including unique offerings like Masters degrees in Writing Popular Fiction, Marriage and Family Therapy and Art Therapy, and a graduate certificate in Genocide and Holocaust Studies.
