It’s Time To Hunt For Doubloons!

As part of the Pirate Adventure for the incoming freshman class, there are 31 doubloons scattered around on SHU’s website waiting to be clicked. Find a doubloon, click on it and earn the point in your badges account. Find enough and you’ll earn these step-up badges (our technical term for them here at the TLTC).

The Pieces of Eight badge can be earned by collecting any eight. The Treasure Seeker badge is the next stop at twenty. Only the best of you will earn the Doubloon Hunter badge when you’ve collected all 31 out there waiting for you.

The satisfaction of finding all 31 doubloons, plus badges — all for just searching the website and learning about important SHU services? Heck, we’ll even give you hints to get started. Who comes up with things like this? We do, and that’s why you’ve made the right decision in coming to Seton Hall. Let the Hunt begin!

Lead Through Diversity

Earn a badge by attending this one-day training through the NCBI chapter at Seton Hall. The workshop is designed to expand your skills on diversity and learn new ones; meet and interact with others regarding issues of difference in a supportive setting; learn how to be an ally; and learn how to interrupt prejudicial jokes, remarks and slurs.

The workshop is open to the entire Seton Hall community (all students, faculty, and staff), but in particular freshmen students and leaders on student organizations with the stated purpose of diversity are targeted for this program.

The last session is December 7, so get started signing up now!
