President's Welcome



Thank you for considering Seton Hill University as you plan for your future.

Through our virtual home, you are visiting a University with a robust history and an exciting future. Seton Hill’s founders, the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill, were always looking ahead, working to address the needs of students in the community. You will find that their pioneering approach underscores everything we do at Seton Hill. In the words of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, we aim “to fit students for that world in which you are destined to live.” These words provide the foundation of our University mission. 

As you consider the amazing range of opportunities before you, let me offer some insight into Seton Hill University.  

First, there is great value in attending a small University with a strong academic reputation and programs of national prominence. In an increasingly competitive job market, the workplace of tomorrow will be looking for graduates who have done their learning using the most advanced technology available in higher education. You will stand out when you look for a job because of what you will gain through our commitment to mobile learning and to career development.   

Second, nothing will set you apart more after graduation than the mark of your liberal arts education. You will have the versatility and the flexibility to adapt to an ever-changing global market. You will develop the critical thinking, communications, and interpersonal skills that will remain with you for the rest of your life. 

Third, and perhaps most importantly, when you consider Seton Hill, please recognize that we are a University with a rich spiritual heritage, a Catholic institution—where academic, athletic, creative, and spiritual activities are focused on the development of the whole student.  

As an alumna of Seton Hill, I can tell you that much will happen during your time here that will help shape your life and your life’s work. Know that throughout your experience you will acquire an education that will help fit you for the future and your place in the world.  

If you have questions along the way, my door is always open on the second floor of Maura Hall. Please stop by or drop me a note.  

Thank you again for your interest in Seton Hill University. I look forward to seeing you on campus, I wish you the best in your college search, and I hope you conclude that Seton Hill is the best fit for you!

Warm wishes,

Bibiana Boerio

Interim President
Seton Hill University
