FEAC-EducationUSA Gets in Touch with Students @American Corner Bacău

On December 15, the Fulbright-EducationUSA advising team was pleased to deliver a virtual presentation on U.S. study opportunities, kindly hosted by the Information Resource Center at the US Embassy, for students at American Corner Bacău.
We took this opportunity to acquaint the students, mainly 11th graders, with liberal arts education and other advantages afforded by the U.S. higher education system, as well as provide them with useful tips on the application process, and encouraged them to take advantage of our resources and services.
Several of the participants voiced an interest in studying in the U.S. and were keen to ask questions, on topics ranging from the most popular majors pursued by their peers to athletic scholarships.

Winter Holidays Celebration, December 2016

Returning to an older tradition, the Romanian - U.S. Fulbright Commission organized its Winter Holidays Celebration on December 8 & 9. The event included a meeting of all U.S. Fulbright grantees at the Commission headquarters, who spoke about the experience during their first months in Romania, presented and commented on their academic activities as well as on the way they adjusted to the new environment.  They also spoke about their perspectives and plans for the 2nd semester.

The entire group of U.S. Fulbright were invited in the reception organized at Casa Universitarilor, where American Fulbright grantees had a chance to interact with representative of the U.S. Embassy, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Fulbright Board of Directors, as well as Romanian alumni and friends of the program.

On the second day of the event, the group of American Fulbrighters visited the Parliament Building, Cotroceni Museum and had lunch at Caru cu Bere.
