Seton Hill University celebrated its centennial year in 2018 with its 100th graduating class. This year was the Setonian’s turn to celebrate this milestone with its 100th year of publication. In honor of the Setonian’s centennial, the Setonian staff compiled a list of 100 different things that make SHU the place it is today.

The list ranges from SHU’s identity to its buildings to its traditions held each year. There are also some more amusing aspects included about scenarios that many SHU students can relate to (everyone has struggled to find a parking spot on campus at some point).
