Dr. Lightfoot, Senior Fulbright Grantee, Meets with Romanian High School Students

On January 29, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center-EducationUSA had the pleasure of hosting a presentation delivered by dr. Elizabeth Lightfoot, University of Minnesota professor and 2018-2019 U.S. senior grantee, on the strengths of the U.S. higher education system and the various pathways to admission to undergraduate study. Dr. Lightfoot talked to an audience of 9th and 11th grade high school students from I. L. Caragiale National College about some of the specific benefits of studying in an American university or college, from the possibility of doing research using creative methodologies and high-tech labs to networking with peers from many different countries.
Dr. Lightfoot kindly answered questions on the differences between the U. S. educational process and practices and expectations about college-level instruction in other countries, including Romania. The high school students in the audience seemed particularly involved in the discussions and did not shy away from asking questions about post-graduation prospects.
