Alexanderina Vigh ‘65

A Personal Responsibility

Alexanderina Vigh ’65, or Drina as she is known to friends, found a home at Seton Hall after arriving as a transfer student. Active in her sorority and many campus activities, Vigh received her B.S. degree in 1965 and started her career as a technical writer on the staffs of Chemical Week and BusinessWeek magazines in New York City.

Moving to Washington, D.C., Vigh worked as a public relations officer, technical writer and policy analyst for the U.S. Agency for International Development, which provides humanitarian aid abroad. She retired from the agency as acting Director for Management, Technical Assistance Bureau.

After retiring, she moved to Wellsville, N.Y., where she remains active in civic and social issues. As the years have passed, Vigh appreciates her Seton Hall education more and more — especially in her private life. “My education has been instrumental in how I live my life and what I believe in,” she says. “My personal thinking is that I have a responsibility to give back.”

Vigh is a member of Seton Hall’s Hazard Zet Forward Society, which recognizes alumni and friends who have made gifts for 15 years or more. Appropriately, her annual contributions are applied toward scholarships to help students with financial needs. She has included the University in her will with the intention to establish an endowed scholarship in her name.
