Drexel University Rep Connects with Romanian Students in Bucharest

Drexel University representative Amanda Anderson (Director of International Admissions) was back in Bucharest this past week to connect with Romanian high school students. The Fulbright Educational Advising Center-EducationUSA team was happy to meet her again and assist her in her outreach efforts.

On September 25, our guest delivered an engaging in-center presentation on study opportunities at Drexel University. The attendees, mainly high school students, had a chance to learn more about Drexel’s rich academic offering, with its unique emphasis on experiential learning, the admission process and the generous financial aid available for highly competitive applicants, via the Drexel Global Scholar program. We were happy to learn that Romanians are well-represented among the DGS finalists.

We also accompanied our guest to three of the finest high schools in Bucharest - “Tudor Vianu” National College of Computer Science, “I. L. Caragiale” National College and “Gheorghe Şincai” National College -, where an average 200 students (mainly 10th and 11th graders) gathered to hear the presentations, eager to learn more about the Drexel community and the path to studying at this prestigious U.S. school.

We took the opportunity to tell participants a few words about the resources awaiting them at FEAC-EducationUSA and ways we can help them in preparing strong applications to undergraduate programs in the U.S.

Stanford & Penn Connect with Undergrads in Romania

On September 20, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center-EducationUSA (FEAC) had the pleasure of introducing two representatives of some of the most prestigious U.S. universities, University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University, to Romanian high school students and the general public. After a public program at the American International School of Bucharest on September 19, Ms. Kiyoe Hashimoto (Deputy Dean of Admission, Stanford University) and Ms. Beth Downing (Senior Associate Dean of Admission, University of Pennsylvania), together with the FEAC advisor, talked to the students of the International Computer High School of Bucharest and delivered a public presentation at American Corner Bucharest. During both events, the students, some of whom were joined by their parents, found out about the liberal arts curriculum at both institutions, the diversity of study paths at the undergraduate level, funding options and the admission timeline, while also having an opportunity to ask questions about various nuances of the admission process and best practices in applying for undergraduate study in the United States.
