Seton Hall wins NACMA "Best Of" Award


Orlando, Fl. The National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators (NACMA) has selected its 2010-11 award winners. Initiated in 2003, the NACMA Awards program honors outstanding achievement in marketing and promotions. Awards are presented in 16 categories, with each category divided into three groups based upon school size and conference affiliations to promote fairness. A total of 782 entries were received for the 2010-11 year.

Seton Hall Athletics was awarded a Gold award (highest honors) in the category of Student Promotion for its 2010-2011 men's basketball student season ticket campaign, "Perfect Attendance."  Seton Hall beat out Texas A & M and Louisiana State University, the other finalists in the category. The winners were presented their awards during NACMA's 20th Annual Convention, June 16-18 in Orlando. The awards ceremony occurred today, Friday, June 17.

For the 2010-2011 season, Seton Hall students were able to obtain a full refund on their season ticket purchasing price of $75 by attending all 15 men's basketball home games played at the Prudential Center. For the first time in five years the student section was completely sold out on a season ticket basis and had to be expanded to accommodate single game ticket purchasers. Seton Hall Athletics thanks the entire student body for helping to make the 2010-2011 men's basketball season ticket campaign a tremendous success.
