Welcome Back Students, Fall 2015 Has Begun!
This week marks the first week of classes at Seton Hall University, and I'd like to welcome back all the students and welcome the Hall Class of 2019. The start of school also means our fall sports are in full swing. Our men's & women's soccer and volleyball teams have already begun regular season competition, and our cross country teams will be in action for the first time this weekend. This Friday is our home opener for men's & women's soccer and volleyball, and we need your support! Women's soccer will kick things off at Owen T. Carroll Field at 4 p.m. vs. Duquesne, followed by our men's team vs. Rider at 7 p.m. Also at seven is our volleyball team against Notre Dame inside Walsh Gymnasium.
Hope to see you at the games in your Pirate Blue on Friday! And if you can't make it, watch live on the Pirate Sports Network!
Invest in Our Program With Season Tickets
We are less than 75 days away from tip-off at the Prudential Center, and I know our fans and alumni are getting excited for another fun-filled season of Seton Hall men's basketball. We announced our non-conference schedule last month, and we have some marquee match-ups against Georgia and Wichita State where we will need the Rock to be loud! Then we will play 18 games in one of the toughest and best basketball conferences in the country in the BIG EAST.
That's why we need your support and why you should invest in season tickets. Your support at games is paramount to our team's success. We want our opponents to come in and see that the Prudential Center is the best home court advantage in the conference, and your presence will be the sixth man to our student-athletes.
We offer affordable, family-friendly fun for all the alumni and fans. We offer you the opportunity to remember why you fell in love with Seton Hall in the first place as you can sit with old classmates and friends. We have discounted plans for everyone, whether you're an alumnus, young alumni, faculty/staff member, parent, or a current student.
And most importantly we want to make sure our season ticket holders receive the best value for their loyalty and support. Our season ticket holders receive the best seats, get priority access to BIG EAST Tournament tickets, receive special invitations to private events and also get access to other events at Prudential Center such as concerts and Devils games.
You can purchase a full season ticket package for as low as $153, which gives you a great seat to every Pirate home game. We can't wait to see you at Prudential Center this season, beginning Nov. 13 against Dartmouth. To receive more information and to purchase, contact the Seton Hall Fan Relationship Management office at (973) 761-9692.
Lending a Hand at Freshman Move-In Day
Every year our entire athletics department participates in helping out at Freshman Move-In Day. I think it's one of the best days of the year because it shows the true spirit of what this University is all about. Upperclassmen, faculty, staff all pitching in to give incoming freshman a great first impression and a much-welcomed helping hand as they step onto campus for the first time as students.
I'm so proud of the effort our student-athletes and staff make to give back on this day. Please take a moment to read the story and watch the video and know that this is just the beginning as our student-athletes will continue to be out and about giving back to the community throughout the year as they always do.
Beefsteak Registration Now Open
Our seventh annual Beefsteak Tip-Off Dinner will take place on Thursday, Oct. 1 at 6 p.m. inside historic Walsh Gymnasium. This event is always an exciting night as we tip off the men's & women's basketball seasons. Attendees will have the chance to meet both teams, bid on silent auction items, enjoy terrific food and interact with fellow Pirate Blue members and alumni.
And remember, proceeds from the event go directly towards supporting our student-athletes and their experience at Seton Hall.
