Seton Hall Class of 2019 families have a unique opportunity to set the bar for future class years by participating in the inaugural Senior Family Challenge!

The Senior Family Challenge is a new tradition of philanthropy to support student life on the South Orange and IHS campuses. This year, we are asking for gifts to the Student Emergency Fund to help future students during great times of need. Whether it is a financial crisis, an unexpected hardship or emergency travel, the Student Emergency Fund is there to help Seton Hall students. When unexpected financial needs arise, the University provides immediate assistance to help students travel home or cover academic or personal expenses.

Brian and Susan Michalovic, parents of Ivan, understand the importance of giving back to Seton Hall:

"Our son Ivan entered Seton Hall with a passion for mathematics but desired the fast pace of Wall Street banking upon graduation. Through an internship of a lifetime at Jefferies Financial Group in NYC, Ivan's goals will be achieved when he moves onward to working with convertible bonds upon graduation.

"We have so many people in the Seton Hall Community to thank: professors, career advisers, alumni, students and coaches. The best way we know how to say thanks is to continue to give back to assure others have the opportunities that Ivan has had. We could think of no better way to both thank the University and congratulate Ivan than to give a gift to Seton Hall University in his name to support the Senior Family Challenge."

Parents can honor their graduating senior by making a gift and including their student’s name as tribute. Take the Challenge and honor your senior during this special time by giving to the Student Emergency Fund!
