Neehal was born in Jacksonville, Florida, and attended Bartram Trail High School in St. Johns, Florida before coming to Stetson. He comments, "I’m a big believer in closure. That’s why when I was given the opportunity to represent the department at Hatter Saturday’s Arts and Sciences panel, I felt my time at Stetson had come full circle. I remember when I was a high school senior, becoming more convinced with the political science discipline whilst listening to student representatives at Hatter Saturday in 2019. Stepping into those shoes as a college senior, sharing my own academic and personal experiences with prospective students, is one of my best memories at Stetson.” Neehal plans to attend law school, either in the fall or after a "refreshing" gap year. He is a member of Pi Sigma Alpha and Phi Beta Kappa.
