Ways to Get Involved

Alumni Relations, in partnership with the campus community, provides graduates with University-based, certified volunteer opportunities. Seton Hall can't do it without you! Here are just a few examples of the many ways to stay connected by giving back.

Seton Hall AlumniSeton Hall Admission Resource Program (SHARP)
Seton Hall's international prospective student recruitment effort, popularly referred to as SHARP, allows alumni world-wide to give back to Seton Hall. Attend on-campus admissions events (Open House, Pirate Preview). Call or write notes to applicants or accepted students. Host regional student sendoff events or yield events in your hometown. Distribute Admissions materials to local high schools. Refer a prospective student to the University.

Mentoring Current Students Alumni are encouraged to help mold Seton Hall's future graduates by volunteering a minimal amount of time to guide and mentor a current student. There are two types of mentoring that alumni can become involved with at the University:

Pirate Mentoring
Coach students by reviewing resumes, listening to elevator pitches, conducting practice interviews or speaking at events. Mentor students and provide career advice via phone, Skype, email, or in person. Allow a student to shadow you at your workplace.

School or College-Based Mentoring
Work with current students who are currently enrolled in the school or college from which you graduated. Answer questions about classes, professors, or assignments. Help students become successful by offering advice about balancing the rigors of a college education.

Regional Alumni Chapters
Not close to campus? You can still connect with Seton Hall right in your own neighborhood! Find your local Seton Hall Ambassador and apply to represent your region here. Regional Chapters are a great way to get local Setonians together to network, serve and socialize!

Alumni VolunteersCommunity Service
Carry on the Seton Hall tradition of servant leadership. Check out the Alumni Calendar for service opportunities with campus and community partners.

On-Campus Events
Volunteer at events hosted on-campus by various partners and departments. No matter the audience, on-campus events allow you to re-connect and share your memories.

Boards and Committees
Alumni serve Seton Hall as members of a variety of governing boards, volunteer boards and committees.

Alumni Clubs
Alumni Clubs bring together alumni with similar career, volunteer, service or social interests. Check out the list of current clubs to get involved. If there's not a club that meets your interests you can start your own!

There are even more ways for alumni to get involved and give back to the Seton Hall community. Show your volunteer interests by completing the Volunteer Interest Survey.
