FEAC-EducationUSA Outreach at Lauder-Reut Educational Complex in Bucharest

On Friday, January 23, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center (FEAC)-EducationUSA team headed by dr. Rodica Mihăilă paid a special visit to the Lauder-Reut Educational Complex in Bucharest. A prestigious private institution for K-12 education, the Lauder-Reut Complex hosted a general information session delivered by the resident Fulbright-EducationUSA adviser to an audience of around 50 students. High schoolers enrolled in the 9th, 10th and 11th grade were provided with information on U.S. undergraduate admissions and funding opportunities as well as with details regarding upcoming events and workshops scheduled to take place at the FEAC-EducationUSA center in Bucharest.

The Fulbright-EducationUSA representatives were delighted to reconnect with Lauder-Reut students who had previously participated in the U.S. Alumni Fair organized in the fall of 2015 and who were eager to learn about new study opportunities, including the key question of financial aid and student employment options. This presentation was the first in a series of events under the aegies of the new partnership between the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and the Lauder Reut Educational Complex.

Memoirs and Dreams, an anthology edited by U.S. Fulbright Alumnus Gene Tanta

The statements and stories comprising this anthology were written during a writing workshop called "Creative Nonfiction: Memoirs and Dreams". This collection represents the best work of American Studies MA students at the University of Bucharest, where I had the privilege to teach as a Fulbright Scholar 2012-2013.

Memoir, as a genre, has a bit of a bad reputation. It’s often seen as self-indulgent and cloying. Dorothy Parker puts it this way: "All those writers who write about their childhood! Gentle God, if I wrote about mine you wouldn't sit in the same room with me."

Friedrich Nietzsche offers a more earnest solution to the problem of wallowing in self-pity and over-familiar language: enjoy the observation. He writes: “The man who is responsive to artistic stimuli reacts to the reality of dreams as does the philosopher to the reality of existence; he observes closely, and he enjoys his observation: for it is out of these images that he interprets life, out of these processes that he trains himself for life.”
