Alumni relations provides graduates with many ways to volunteer and
make a difference at Seton Hall. One such opportunity is helping at open
houses on campus. Alumni are able to speak with prospective students
and their families and share their experiences. Two alumni were
interviewed to discuss why they volunteer at open houses, and why other
alumni should take advantage of this volunteer opportunity.
Joseph Testa ’12 said he volunteers because giving back is one of the
best things he can do for the memories Seton Hall gave him. He enjoys
sharing his experiences from his time at Seton Hall with prospective
students and answering their questions.
"Volunteering allows alumni the chance to come back to The Hall,
network and inform prospective students. I have left every single event I
volunteered at feeling like I directly helped new students to see their
potential at Seton Hall. I love informing others about the clubs,
events and activities Seton Hall has to offer," said Testa.
John Luski ’75/M.B.A. ’80 has been volunteering for almost 20 years
and is a proud alumnus. He loves to help and be a part of the continued
growth of Seton Hall. Luski enjoys meeting prospective students at open
houses and developing relationships with the faculty and administrators
of Seton Hall.
When asked if he would recommend this volunteer opportunity to other
alumni, Luski said, "It doesn't take much time and you can make a
difference. It helps you become a better person. I really believe you
can gain as much from this experience as you give to it. You are
tremendously influencing students to attend Seton Hall and it is great
to see the results of your efforts."
This spring, there will be two Spring Open House events on campus on
February 16 and April 27 at 9 a.m. Additionally, there are two accepted
student events in which alumni can volunteer – the Scholarship Reception
