“Decebal” High School Students Consider US Study Opportunities

On Thursday, May 29, the Fulbright Education Advising Center (FEAC) team held an information session at “Decebal” Bilingual High School in Bucharest, where 40+ high school students (10th & 11th graders) took part in. Our FEAC intern, David Henriquez, delivered a presentation on “Study in the USA” which focused on studying abroad in the US at an undergraduate level. We discussed the application process, personal statement, choosing the right university and the ways in which our EducationUSA advising team can help prospective applicants. The students participated in our Q&A session and did not miss the opportunity to ask about American culture, life as a student and even myths about the Greek life at a US university campus. We would like to thank Prof. Virginia Dutu for inviting us to speak today and we look forward to our next meeting.

News from Romanian Fulbright Scholar Nadia Albu

Dr. Nadia Albu of the Bucharest University of Economic Studies, Romania, currently a Senior Fulbright Grantee at the University of Dayton, Ohio, reports on her visits to two major American Universities. One of these visits was financed via the Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF), namely the University of Central Florida (UCF) (Kenneth G. Dixon School of Accounting). Nadia made a formal presentation about the financial reporting practices of companies in Central and Eastern Europe, with a focus on Romania. Informally, she had several meetings with various UCF faculty and doctoral students, thus making available information about Romania and the Romanian culture to her American colleagues. The other visit was to the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill, where she attended a research workshop together with colleagues at UNC. Nadia also met formally and informally with American colleagues. While at UNC, Nadia also visited the university’s basketball museum. The importance of the college basketball is one of the features of the American environment. UNC is particularly special because well-known players such as Michael Jordan started from the basketball team of this university.

This Friday, May 23, the American Corner Bucharest, in cooperation with the Romanian-US Fulbright Commission and its EducationUSA Advising Center (FEAC), hosted another presentation on US study opportunities and academic life. Professor Robert Lawrence (2013-2014 U.S. Fulbright Scholar/University of South Florida) offered the audience a comparative view of the American and Romanian systems of higher education.

Professor Lawrence provided an insider’s view of three American universities – UC Berkeley, UC San Diego and University of South Florida – based on his own experiences first as a student and then as a faculty member. It was also an opportunity for the audience to learn about the educational advising services provided by FEAC to all those interested in seeking an undergraduate and graduate degree in the US. A big thank you to Professor Lawrence for his detailed and carefully crafted presentation!
