Daniel J. Gioseffi ’73 with his wife, Roxanne

Daniel J. Gioseffi ’73

A Path Toward Social Discovery

As a young man studying business administration in the 1970s, Daniel Gioseffi ’73 did not fully realize the scope of the personal journey he was taking. A transformation was occurring every time he attended class, studied in the library, mingled at the University Center and conversed with his Sigma Pi fraternity brothers. Only years later did he look back on his time in South Orange and understand how it sculpted his future — both as a businessman and a person.

Having the freedom on campus that he did not have at Bloomfield High School led him to gradually understand that all the choices he made were now his and his alone. He realized he had to choose wisely and not waste the opportunities he was given. "Seton Hall and those thoughts molded and inspired me to be the best version of myself," Dan said.

He explained that his path after graduation was strongly and positively influenced by two factors. First and foremost was his loving wife and soulmate, Roxanne. And right behind Roxanne was his Seton Hall family, who reinforced the time he spent as an undergraduate.

In making his planned gift, Dan wanted to give back and provide future students with what was provided to him: "an education, a work ethic to succeed in all aspects of my life, well- rounded socialization, and joy to be with young men and women my own age going through what I was going through. In short, a community of peers."
