The events on Saturday will start off with the 34th Annual Farinella 5K Run, followed by food, activities and games throughout the day.

On Saturday morning, WSOU 89.5 Pirate Radio will broadcast a live interview with Dr. Mary Meehan, Interim President, hosted by Brother Greg Cellini '83, of "Thank God for Monday." This interview will contain an intimate discussion with President Meehan, where she will dive into thoughts and insights about the Seton Hall community, where it is now and where it is headed.

Alumni at Seton Hall Weekend"We focus on Catholicity and how to really engage ourselves in our workplaces. We are looking forward to discussing with Dr. Meehan how Seton Hall is infusing its Catholic mission into its own identity so effectively. We also want to explore Dr. Meehan’s inspirations, and how they allow her to remain so motivated in her position as president," Brother Greg stated. The interview can be heard from 8:30-9 a.m. on October 20. Interview can be heard by tuning in to the radio station at 89.5 FM, or listen to the live stream at "
