A joyous crowd of new undergrad students and their family members gathered on Saturday, April 26, 2014 for the annual Scholarship Reception.  The 300 visitors enjoyed a brunch at the Don Taft University Arena before the new students received congratulations for the scholarships they were awarded.  The event was emceed by Stephanie G. Brown, Ed.D., Vice President of Enrollment and Student Services.  Ralph V. Rogers, Jr., Ph.D., Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, served as the keynote speaker.  Rogers impressed upon the new students that they were “special,” in that they were selected for their academic merits and will be joining the NSU community in a time of scholarship, internship, and research opportunities.

Two outstanding current students addressed the newest Sharks.  Desiree Kennedy, the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Student of the Year, spoke about the academic opportunities she has embraced during her years as a student.  Lindsey Goldstein, the Abraham S. Fischler School of Education Student of the Year, encouraged the new students to get involved as she had in the many community and philanthropic events available to NSU students. Both Desiree and Lindsey are receiving with their undergraduate degrees this spring.

Two student performances entertained and excited the crowd.  Michael Friedman performed “Anthem” and Rissa Dyas performed “Ready,” a song which was written by NSU alum Adi Solichan.  Bill J. Adams, D.M.A.,  Associate Professor and Coordinator of Performing Arts, Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Division of Performing and Visual Arts, prepared these two performances.

The new students were called to the stage to receive congratulations from Provost Rogers, along with Don Rosenblum, Ph.D., Dean of the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences; Jamie Manburg, Ed.D., Associate Dean and Program Professor of Teacher Education and Undergraduate Programs at the Abraham S. Fischler School of Education; William Faulkner, Ph.D., Assistant Dean of Student Development with the Division of Student Affairs and the College of Undergraduate Studies; and Peter Finley, Ph.D., Associate Professor from the H.
