"2021 to 2023, Rowan University’s tuition has increased by 4%." - Previous Photo Editor/Amanda Palma

Eric Boldizar, a 2017 radio, television and film (RTF) graduate from Mantua, N.J., died on Saturday, April 21. While at Rowan, Boldizar premiered a documentary called “What’s Up Doc-umentary,” which was nominated for “Best Documentary” at the RTF Film Festival last year.

“I had Eric in my New Media Production and New Media Practicum classes,” said Jonathan Olshefski. “He was a really great student who was dedicated to building his skills. I even brought him on as a tutor/lab monitor to cover the computer lab on weekends.”
“He was very patient and had a very easy-going, gentle demeanor that made it easy for students to go to him for help,” Olshefski continued. “I am really heartbroken to hear Eric is no longer with us. He will be remembered and he will be missed.”
