A network of 100 thousand alumni is one of the latest milestones Seton Hall University is celebrating. The strength of such a robust alumni network means more opportunities for alumni, as well as for current and future students. With Pirates in 50 states and 70 countries, the chances of running into a Setonian are pretty high. The milestone exemplifies the significance of the annual gala more so than ever: many truly are one. One-hundred thousand people share Seton Hall as their common thread; it is in that spirit of unity the 31st annual Many Are One alumni awards gala is set to bring over 400 members of the Seton Hall community together for an evening of celebration and recognition.
This year's premier black-tie event will honor four outstanding alumni for their professional accomplishments and service to Seton Hall;

Not only does the evening recognize the accomplishments of alumni, it also ensures the education of future Pirates. The evening is a fundraiser for the Seton Hall Alumni Scholarship which provides selected students who are children, grandchildren and siblings of Seton Hall alumni with a four-year scholarship of more than $20,000.
Alumni, all 100 thousand, continue to play a strong role in the life and legacy of Seton Hall University. For that reason, Seton Hall invites all proud Pirates to participate in Many Are One. The event will take place at the Hanover Marriot in Whippany, NJ on June 9, 2017 at 6 p.m. For ticket, sponsorship, and advertising information, click here »
