Seton Hill University is a small, Catholic liberal arts university located in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Originally a women’s college, the university became coeducational in 2002.

The university is widely recognized for its recent Technology Advantage Program, which provides every full-time student with an iPad and a MacBook. Seton Hill offers more than 30 undergraduate majors and 12 graduate degrees, including popular programs in business, art, psychology, and music as well as the university’s signature programs in health sciences, visual and performing arts, and business and entrepreneurship.
