On Monday, November 18, in celebration of International Education Week, the FEAC-EducationUSA team accompanied Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Allen Chen for an event dedicated to the U.S. education higher education system, kindly hosted by “Ion Luca Caragiale” National College in Bucharest.
Allen delivered an engaging presentation on liberal arts colleges, also drawing on his personal experience as a graduate of Occidental College, and encouraged the participants to do a thorough research when working on their school selection.

They were also happy to learn about the resources awaiting them at FEAC-EducationUSA and ways we can help them in preparing strong applications to undergraduate and graduate programs in the U.S.
Many thanks to Allen, for kindly agreeing to join us as a speaker, and to Delia Dumitriu, dedicated teacher and FEAC friend, for her gracious support in organizing this event!
