Drexel University Rep Connects with Romanian Students in Bucharest

The Fulbright Educational Advising Center-EducationUSA team was happy to meet this past week with Drexel University representative Amanda Anderson (Director of Admissions), who visited Bucharest, October 4 through 6, and assist her in connecting with Romanian high school students.

On October 4, our guest delivered an engaging in-center presentation on study opportunities at Drexel University, which we also live streamed via the GoToWebinar platform. 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.

New Book by Fulbright Alumna Tara Skurtu

Tara Skurtu’s poetry book, The Amoeba Game, was just released by Eyewear Publishing. The official launch is on October 11, at the London Review Bookshop, in Bloomsbury.

More about Tara’s collection of poems in Robert Pinsky’s words, a poet, essayist, translator, teacher, and 3-time Poet Laureate:
"The earned, liberated laughter of survival and foreboding; a high-voltage mind thinking in images; candid grief; an irreverence that rises above convention to a true, untamed intuition of the sacred; love, with all its penalties and joys. With these qualities, the engaging poems of Tara Skurtu’s The Amoeba Game offer a vision of our familiar world transformed by possibility. The title poem is a compact, funny parable of imagination engaging the unknown, and happy to encounter the unknowable." --Robert Pinsky
