True Blue Month 2018

Brought to you by the Student Alumni Association (SAA) in partnership with University Advancement, the 3rd annual True Blue Month will be held throughout November to educate our campus community about philanthropy at Seton Hall.

Last year, the Student Alumni Association was recognized by CASE ASAP for “Outstanding Student Advancement Program” within District 2 for True Blue Month.

Join us in celebrating the award-winning True Blue Month this November, and thank our #HallTrueBlue supporters!

True Blue Day
Monday, November 26, 10:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.
South Orange and IHS Campuses
All Seton Hall community members on the South Orange and IHS campuses are invited to stop at a card-signing station to write personalized thank you notes to a Seton Hall supporter. Student participants will be entered into a prize-winning raffle. Card signing stations will be available in the following locations:

  • University Center Lobby
  • Boland Hall Lobby
  • Jubilee Hall
  • Library (2nd Fl)
  • The Living Room

One of the most important aspects of True Blue Day is visually demonstrating the impact donors have on Seton Hall's campus. As members walk around the University throughout the day, they will notice flags around the Green that symbolize the number of donors dedicated to the enhancing the Seton Hall experience. They will also notice bows in and around buildings and campus structures which indicate items that were gifted to Seton Hall.

Giving Tuesday
Tuesday, November 27.

After Thanksgiving and the major shopping days that follow (Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday), comes Giving Tuesday, the international day of giving to philanthropic organizations. All Setonians are encouraged to show Pirate Pride by making their Giving Tuesday gift to Seton Hall in support of the Division of Volunteer Efforts (DOVE). Through the generous support of Pirates everywhere DOVE is able to carry out the Seton Hall mission of servant leadership and create lasting impact on the Seton Hall, local and global communities.

Gifts can be made here.
