“I enjoy coming back to the Seton Hall campus itself to participate in the open houses, freshman previews and University Weekend festivities because it always feels like coming home.” – Gregory
Gregory E. Williams ʼ89 and Mary (Christiano) Williams ʼ89
Meet Greg and Mary
Gregory Williams and Mary Christiano met on the Seton Hall University campus during the first few days of their freshman year. They began dating during their junior year and were married in 1991. Gregory’s degree in business administration, with a concentration in management information systems, and Mary’s degree in mathematics, with a minor in computer science, landed both of them positions at technology giant IBM.
Currently a senior software developer/consultant for TEKsystems, Gregory serves as an adviser to the Philadelphia Electric company. His prior consulting assignments include JP Morgan Chase and Nationwide Insurance Company. Mary has been a senior programmer/analyst with Lincoln Investment Planning, Inc. for 20 years. While at Lincoln Investment, Mary earned her FINRA Series 6 license.
The couple has remained deeply committed to the University that brought them together. For more than 10 years, they have volunteered to assist with the recruitment and admission of incoming freshmen. They frequently travel to Seton Hall to speak with prospective students and families. They participate in calling campaigns to congratulate newly accepted students and represent the University at college fairs. While it will never be possible to quantify the number of students whose college choices have been influenced by the Williamses, they certainly number in the hundreds. The couple also volunteer for Seton Hall’s True Blue alumni recognition program and attend numerous University events and activities.
In addition to supporting their alma mater, Greg and Mary volunteer with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at their parish, St. Mary’s, in Bordentown, N.J. Mary is currently serving a three-year term as the group’s president. Gregory has coached youth soccer in Bordentown for 10 years.
For their tireless dedication to their alma mater, Seton Hall University presented Gregory and Mary with the Many Are One 2014 Alumni Impact Award.
