Fulbright-EducationUSA Center in Bucharest Kicks Off Its First “Alternative Education Week” Program

On Monday, April 6, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center began its first ever “Alternative Education Week” program with a series of two events hosted by the Information Resource Center of the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest. The audience was made up of around 70 students and teachers from three high schools in Bucharest – “Al. I. Cuza” High School, “Cantemir Voda” National College, and “Spiru Haret” National College – alongside a small, but knowledgeable group of American Studies students from the University of Bucharest.

On Monday, April 6, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center began its first ever “Alternative Education Week” program with a series of two events hosted by the Information Resource Center of the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest. The audience was made up of around 70 students and teachers from three high schools in Bucharest – “Al. I. Cuza” High School, “Cantemir Voda” National College, and “Spiru Haret” National College – alongside a small, but knowledgeable group of American Studies students from the University of Bucharest.

The first presentation of the day was given by Mr. Vernon Foster, Klamath-Modoc tribal member, who talked about the challenges and the accomplishments of the young generation of Native Americans. He conveyed his wisdom through a compelling personal narrative and introduced the Romanian audience to the new wave in indigenous hip hop music, much to the delight of those in attendance. Mr. Foster also discussed the tradition of tribal colleges on Indian reservations and encouraged potential applicants to broaden their educational horizons by considering this opportunity as well. The second – and last – presentation of the day was dedicated to the strategic approach to U.S. admissions, titled “Five Steps to U.S. Admissions”. The Fulbright-EducationUSA team provided background information about the key components of a good application and warmly encouraged the high school students in attendance to visit the Fulbright-EducationUSA center in Bucharest for free, in-depth advising services and library resources. Both presentations ended with an animated Q&A section, leading to further suggestions for future events.
