ETA Activities in Sibiu

The American English Club at Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu (ULBS), run by Fulbright ETA Matthew Chernick, is a weekly activity that meets at the Faculty of Letters and Arts. Drawing students from across the university and Sibiu community, the club aims to be a relaxed, informal, and enjoyable way for students of all levels to work on their English language skills.

On January 16th, 2018, the club welcomed its first guest speaker, Fulbright ETA Courtney-Sophia Henry, who presented a talk entitled “Beyond Sailor Jerry: Tattoo and Body Modification in Contemporary American Culture.” The talk was informative and deeply engaged the attending students. During the visit, time was also spent networking with the ULBS Anglo-American and German Studies faculty for the benefit of the Fulbright Program, American, and the Romanian academic communities. The Club hopes for other visits from Fulbrighters in the future!

EducationUSA REAC Connects with Students in Bacău and Craiova via DVC

On December 12, the Information Resource Center (IRC) at the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest hosted a digital video conference on U.S. study opportunities, co-presented by Katherine Scodova, the EducationUSA Regional Educational Advising Coordinator for Europe and Eurasia, on a two-day visit to Bucharest, and the FEAC-EducationUSA adviser.
Romanian high school students joined us live from the American Corners in Bacău and Craiova, keen to learn more about the process of applying to U.S. universities and financial aid opportunities. We took the opportunity to tell the students about the ways the Fulbright Educational Advising Center can help them throughout the application process and the newly launched competition for the EducationUSA Opportunity Funds program. The last part of the presentation was allotted to the Q&A section, in which participants asked questions on campus life, particular majors, as well as graduate study opportunities.
Many thanks to the IRC and American Corner coordinators for their kind support in organizing and promoting the event!
