News from Romanian Fulbrighter Monica Got

The beginning of November was an especially busy time for Fulbrighters in California, with two important Fulbright-related events taking place in Malibu and Los Angeles, respectively. As the only Romanian Fulbright scholar in the Southern California region (and all of California, most probably), I was fortunate enough to represent Romania on both occasions.

The first event, on November 1, was organized by the International Visitors Council of Los Angeles (IVCLA), with all Fulbrighters in California being invited to take part in the Annual Fulbright Luncheon hosted in Malibu, at the residence of Dr. and Mrs. Amarjit Marwah. Fulbright scholars were thus offered the opportunity to make new connections and partake in interesting exchanges with IVCLA members, staff and guests, Consular Corps officials and IVCLA International Visitors, all while enjoying a beautiful day overlooking the stunning Malibu coast.

The title of his conference was Itch: from basic research to clinics.

Halloween at the Fulbright Haunted House

On Friday, October 31, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center hosted its first Halloween party, in parternship with our friends from the American Studies Program at the University of Bucharest. Some 40+ “familiars” were bold enough to walk into our house of horrors and join in our spooky Costume Competition. Following a transparent and democratic voting procedure, our Fulbright ETA, Jamie Beth Weaver, emerged the winner for her original portrayal of The Raven, closely followed by “Charlie Chaplin”, while honorable mentions went to “The Bloody Nun”, “Hawkeye/ Robin Hood” and “The Russian Mobster”. The proceedings also included a pumpkin carving competition and bobbing for apples.
We would like to thank our friends and colleagues from the American Studies program, as well as our lovely and lively team of high school interns, for their priceless assistance and for enthusiastically joining in the proceedings.
