Charter Day Livestream
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, April 4 at 3 p.m. in the Event Room of the University Center.
