Students from Liberty University Visit Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission

On Wednesday, June 7, a group of ten U.S. students from Liberty University- Lynchburg, Virginia, coordinated by Fulbright Scholar Alumnus Professor Michael Jones and his wife Laura Jones, paid us a visit in order to learn about study and research opportunities in Romania and the types of educational exchanges which the Fulbright Program facilitates.
 
The students, currently in Romania as part of the international internship program their university offers, will major in different fields, ranging from Film Studies, Philosophy/Religious Studies and Business to Nursing and English Teaching as a Foreign Language.  During the meeting held at the Fulbright Educational Advising Center, the students asked questions about study opportunities in Romanian universities and were interested in finding  out more about the eligibility requirements for a Fulbright award. They also shared impressions about their recent experience of Romania and the cultural diversity and differences they encountered. Professor Jones remembered his first interaction with the Romanian people and culture, also pointing out a few circumstances he considered significant for his experience as a Fulbrighter in Romania.

The event has proved once more that not only does the Fulbright Program generate life-changing academic and personal experiences but it also builds long-term connections, being an excellent way for every international student and scholar to make the most of the benefits of cultural and academic exchanges.
