WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT
New Scholarship Honors Holocaust Survivors
The daughter and son-in-law of Holocaust survivors have endowed a $25,000 scholarship fund at Stockton University to assist students interested in Holocaust and Genocide Studies.
Ann and Howard Rosenberg created the Jadzia and David Greenbaum Memorial Scholarship to honor Ann’s parents, who met and fell in love in a displaced persons camp in Germany after World War II.
Natives of Poland, the Greenbaums (pictured) survived labor and death camps and later immigrated to America, settling in New York City. In 1951 they bought a chicken farm in McKee City, then in 1957 moved to Margate, where they built a successful construction business and raised four children. Jadzia was an active member of the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center Executive Committee at Stockton.

Enrollment Verification Reminder for Faculty
As the fall semester is quickly approaching, faculty are reminded to confirm student attendance at the beginning of each course after the add/drop period. The Office of Financial Aid will use this information to make adjustments to student financial aid disbursements based upon the confirmed number of credits.
Each instructor will be responsible for verifying student attendance or participation in an academic activity. For online courses, faculty are reminded to include an assignment or discussion activity during the drop/add period so that the student's attendance can be confirmed.
The link to complete Enrollment Verification can be found under the faculty tab within the goStockton portal.
