Throughout the course of the school year, the Student Alumni Association recognized True Blue students for their continued loyalty to the University. At their end of year celebration, William Sayegh was the named the True Blue Student of the Year. The award honors a True Blue student who embodies the mission of the recognition program and has made an impact on the Seton Hall community.
William J. Sayegh is a Junior Biology/Pre-Med major here at Seton Hall University. From Poughkeepsie, NY, William chose Seton Hall because of its close location to home, the biology program, and for its renowned alumni. As a PR/Historian for the American Chemical Society at Seton Hall, William tutors underclassmen in chemistry to help them learn the ins and outs of some of the hardest classes offered at Seton Hall and loves watching its students succeed. William credits his involvement in the Biology Society for helping him prepare for the MCAT and for allowing him to pursue his dreams of entering medical school. William also loves being a part of the rugby team because he loves the feeling of being a part of something bigger than himself. Speaking about the University William says, "Seton Hall has offered me so much, and I try my best to capitalize on any opportunity for success, which can be difficult seeing as Seton Hall always seems to have something new to offer. I am so happy being here."
