A Technological Advantage

A Technological Advantage

At Seton Hall we provide our students with a cutting-edge technological advantage. Named  one of the Top 5 Most Connected Colleges by U.S.News and World Report, Seton Hall ensures the success of its students in a wired world  after graduation.

All undergraduates at Seton Hall receive a state-of-the-art laptop or tablet to ensure that students have access to the latest technology. Hands-on experience with the newest devices helps students excel in their studies and learn important skills for use in their professional careers.

The laptop or tablet comes fully loaded with programs that enrich  learning across the curriculum: software for statistical analysis and math, or for health-care and patient-care simulation,  or for collaborative learning projects and research and data collection. We also offer extensive training, a 24/7 help desk and a certified repair center right on campus. Our campus is fully wireless — students can use their devices in the classroom, lounging on the Green, in residence halls or sipping on coffee at Dunkin Donuts. The cost of the laptop or tablet, and its software and support, are included in University tuition and fees.  After two years, students are eligible to upgrade to a new laptop or tablet so they’ll always have the latest technology. Upon graduation students can keep their mobile devices.

Our Mobile Computing program is much more than a free computer; it has changed the way we teach and the way students learn. Our faculty integrates technology into the curriculum to enhance the learning experience, making classes more engaging and applicable to real-world situations.

For example, science faculty can use technology in the classroom to simulate land degradation in marsh lands to see the impact on the environment and allow students to implement and manage various response plans.  Business students can use the technology we provide to do real-time market research — collecting survey data, compiling reports and using analytical tools. Nursing students use tools that manage patient information and drug interactions. Those interested in a foreign language can improve their skills using our software and language labs.  Integrating technology into the learning process enables students to think innovatively, be technologically savvy and present an impressive skill set to future employers.
