Making an Impact

Seton Hall is rising in the ranks of America’s elite Catholic institutions. But no matter how high it climbs, it will always be a university of opportunity. Just as when the University opened in 1856, today’s students are admitted based on their academic qualifications and character. And we remain committed to being accessible to students who are academically prepared to succeed at Seton Hall and for whom we are the right fit.

Giving to Seton Hall transforms the lives of donors and the students who benefit from their generosity. These stories show why people decide to support the University — and how their gifts create a lasting impact.
