St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Charter Day
Charter Day celebrates the founding of Seton Hall in 1856 and the granting of our charter by the New Jersey State legislature in 1861. It is a special annual opportunity to reflect on our history and purpose, our Catholic identity and mission.
This year, the University will celebrate our Charter in a weeklong celebration, with the main program on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 3 p.m. in Bethany Hall.
