As stated in this week’s Setonian, there are a growing number of individuals trying to solicit to members of the Seton Hall community. Primarily, solicitors have been observed trying to get professors and students to sell used textbooks. Some solicitors have even been observed going door-to-door to various professors’ offices, asking them to sell their used textbooks.
Seton Hall has a strict no-solicitation policy. Although Seton Hall is an open campus, any individual soliciting on campus is considered a trespasser unless they first receive permission from the Department of Community Development.
It is important that all within the Seton Hall community are aware of these solicitors. If anyone is approached on campus by a solicitor, they should immediately contact Public Safety.
This is important because although this is an open campus, all within the Seton Hall community should feel as if they are still on a school’s campus and not at a marketplace surrounded by vendors. The need to feel comfortable on campus is important.
Solicitors have also been emailing students regarding the possibility of selling their textbooks. If you receive an email from a solicitor, notify school administrators immediately.
As the weather gets warmer and more students are outside, let us all remember to not be fooled by these “sale’s people.”
