Seton Hall University: A History, 1856-2006 provides an in-depth exploration of Seton Hall's rich heritage from its founding in 1856 to the present day. Released earlier this year, the book covers a wide range of topics, including the University's Catholic mission, through the fascinating lens of the men and women who helped shape the educational institution – and includes numerous archival photos to bring Seton Hall’s history to life.

Sponsored the Division of University Relations in partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of History and the G.K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture, the event is an opportunity for the community to come together and share in the excitement of this historic occasion and celebration of scholastic accomplishment.
