The Fantasticks

U.S. Fulbright Scholar David McTier recently directed a production of The Fantasticks, the longest running musical in American theatre history. The premiere was May 26 at Fabrica de Pensule (Paintbrush Factory) in Cluj. The cast was comprised of all eight members of the Masters I Acting Program at UBB's Faculty of Theatre and Television. For them, this was their first musical as well as their first all-English language production. Dr. McTier noted that he was especially proud of these actors for their commitment and courage and their ability to produce this challenging musical in just three weeks.

FEAC-EducationUSA Adviser Connects with Students and Researchers in Suceava

This Monday, May 29, one half of the FEAC-EducationUSA advising team was present in Suceava for a series of outreach presentations, highlighting teaching and research opportunities in the United States via the Fulbright Awards, as well as independent study opportunities at an undergraduate or graduate level.
In the first half of the day, the FEAC adviser met with high schoolers interested in studying in the U.S., at two top high schools in Suceava, “Petru Rareş” National College and “Ştefan cel Mare” National College. An overall audience of roughly 90 students – mainly 10th and 11th graders - attended the two presentations, which highlighted the distinguishing traits of the U.S. higher education system and provided students with advice on how to best approach the application process, so as to enhance their chances of getting financial aid. Several voiced an interest in the U.S. as a study destination and were happy to learn they can keep in touch with the FEAC-EducationUSA team via online advising.

FEAC Connects to High School and College Students in Oradea

On May 22-23, the FEAC representative had the pleasure of meeting with students from two high schools in Oradea, with the kind support of Oradea County Library, which also boasts an American shelf section. The first part of the presentation covered undergraduate admissions, while the second part dealt with graduate study opportunities in the U.S. The Fulbright award program and other research and study opportunities were presented to an audience made up of grad school hopefuls both at the American Shelf as well as at the University of Oradea, thanks to the university’s International Relations Office. All presentations greatly benefited from the support of not one, but two Fulbright English Teaching Assistants, Damaris Bangean and Anna Claspy, who were glad to share their insight and inside information with dozens of prospective Romanian applicants.
