On October 14, the Division of Student Services collaborated with University Advancement and campus partners to host a Meet and Mingle Welcome Breakfast and Resource Fair in Bethany Hall to welcome parents and guardians to Seton Hall Weekend.

During the presentation, the Vice President of Student Services, Dr. Monica Burnette, shared how the main areas of Academic Success, Campus Inclusion & Community, Student Engagement, Business Affairs, and Information Technology, Student Wellness & Support, and Public Safety & Security support students' academic and social growth and success in a diverse, dynamic, holistic, inclusive, and supportive campus community.

Dr. Burnette shared a new video titled "Sending your Students to College," with student success tips for parents and guardians from President Nyre, Provost Passerini, and Vice President Burnette. Some suggestions include encouraging students to engage in campus events, seek balance in their academic and social life, and ask for help early and often.

Dr. Burnette also shared how the division leads in several areas of the University's Strategic Plan, Harvest our Treasures. Goal 3 aims to create an equitable and consistent premier student experience, by enhancing student support and retention, and preparing students to be impactful global citizens.
