    About Seton Hall University

    It doesn't take much time on the Seton Hall campus to realize that you are part of a community guided by faith. Whether this first becomes apparent when you see priests eating alongside you in the cafeteria or when walking past our beautiful historic chapel, you will quickly learn that our Catholic tradition is a big part of who we are. Faith, Instruction and Action So, what exactly does it mean to be a Catholic University? A university is Catholic in many ways: by instruction, by the creative faith and love of its members, as well as by living Catholic values. The Catholicity of Seton Hall is a call to action and a commitment to building a life that is both faithful to the past - and open to the future. A Call to Service A key part of our Catholic mission is community service. We believe that getting involved in the community teaches lessons that can't be taught in any classroom. All students complete at least 10 hours of community service during their first semester. Getting your hands dirty planting a garden with local school children, launching attention-getting public relations campaigns for nonprofit organizations or sponsoring a "senior prom" at a senior center are just a few ways to help others, build character and make new friends - all while gaining valuable real-world experience that will stand out on your resume. Community Outreach Students volunteer thousands of hours each year through the Division of Volunteer Efforts (DOVE). DOVE aids organizations such as the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, the Community Foodbank of New Jersey and the New Jersey Special Olympics, among others. Each September, Seton Hall students, faculty, staff and alumni unite for Service on Saturdays, a day dedicated to giving back to surrounding communities and agencies. Our Tradition of Theological Study Our commitment to the study of theology is also important to our Catholicity. We view theology as a critical branch of knowledge that should be taught alongside science and the humanities. To support this need, Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology offers programs that serve both seminarians studying for Catholic priesthood and lay students pursuing theological studies.
