"I was optimistic that my time at Seton Hill would be a positive experience, one that would bring me closer to my long-range goals. What I was wholly unprepared for was the kindness, the generosity, and the incredible authenticity of the people I would meet along the way. Seton Hill is a strong, vibrant community of mentors, learners, dreamers and doers - a stunning mosaic of cultures, heritages, values and beliefs."

- Jamie Kegg, SHU '15, M.A. in Special Education, in her commencement speech.
