Joe’s fondest Seton Hall memories include meeting the mother of his children, Michelina Pedalino ’75, with whom he has two grown children, and his best friend George Pompetzki ’75. Even after 40 years, Joe still has strong relationships with many of his fellow Pirates. As he recalls his times as a student, he fondly remembers classes in Japanese History taught by Professor Morton and Anglo American Legal Principles taught by Father Driscoll.
To honor his time at Seton Hall and to support future generations of academically gifted students, in December 2014, Joe established the Joseph F. Andolino Endowed Scholarship Fund at Seton Hall University, which will award scholarships to current and future Seton Hall University undergraduate students. Believing that education is a transformative experience, Joe says, “if I can help a deserving student, who lacks funds, but has the drive to transform his or her life, nothing better can be accomplished with my money.”
