FEAC Book Club

FEAC’s monthly book club began in August 2014, aiming to combine English language activities with in-depth reading practices in weekly sessions devoted to the “book of the month” pick. The book club meetings in August centered on the novel The Unwinding by American journalist George Packer. The discussions took place every Wednesday in August from 4 pm to 5 pm and focused on language practice and cultural history. High school as well as graduate students benefited from discussions with FEAC staff and interns specializing in American history and literature. The month of September will focus on college search options and strategies, while the accompanying book choice will be Loren Pope’s Colleges That Change Lives.


FEAC Introductory Essay Writing Workshop

To jump-start the admission prep phase, FEAC offered an introductory essay writing workshop on August 21. FEAC staff worked with both undergraduate and high school students to help them start drafting their essays by using mind-mapping and speed-writing techniques. We will continue to offer essay writing workshops targeting specific needs throughout the fall semester.

Arts & Crafts, Smiles & Good Times!


Creative workshops at the Fulbright Educational Advising Center

The Fulbright Educational Advising Center/FEAC hosted a series of creative workshops in July which engaged the visitors in interactive, practical and ingenious summer activities. Pablo Picasso's words may well have served as inspiration – "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up" - for our Arts & Crafts sessions this summer. If there is even the slightest chance for the artist inside us to survive, that is reason enough to dedicate an event to it! The series of weekly workshops focused on fostering skills such as creativity, collaboration, problem solving and use of available materials by providing a different theme with each meeting.

Fulbright Alumna Anamaria Vrabie participated in German Marshall Fund’s first event focusing exclusively on urban policy and leadership issues – the Bilbao Urban Innovation and Leadership Dialogues (BUILD)

The Bilbao Urban Innovation and Leadership Dialogues (BUILD) was the German Marshall Fund’s first event focusing exclusively on urban policy and leadership issues. Anamaria Vrabie, Fulbright Alumna at The New School New York, was one of the 100 civic leaders and urban practitioners from GMF’s network in the U.S. and Europe who met in Bilbao between June 11-14, 2014, to discuss strategies for leading transformative change in cities.

During the BUILD, Anamaria contextualized the experience of the Eastern European countries of re-building a sense of community post 1990 and coping with the changing urban fortunes for many mono-industrial cities. Cultivating trust and a shared responsibility for the mediums we live in is an arduous process, sometimes strongly disconnected from the current programs revolving around the EU’s cohesion policy, which do inform most of the investments and revitalization efforts for cities and regions in this area.

The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) strengthens transatlantic cooperation on regional, national, and global challenges and opportunities in the spirit of the Marshall Plan.
