Alumni Reunion Summer 2013 in Review by Roberta Tripea As the 2013 summer camp’s participants returned from their unforgettable trip in the United States, we gathered once again to share our beautiful experiences. The reunion was hosted as in the past by Professor Radu Florescu, his son Mr John Florescu and Mr Tobias Suttle who invited us to Poiana Brasov. The event debuted with Professor’s speech, in which he presented the history of the EERC Foundation, and how the whole program was born. Subsequently, Professor Mircea Ivanoiu , depicted the collaboration between EERC and the Aspera Foundation, presenting its role within the program. After these presentations, the students who took part in this year’s summer camp, were encouraged to speak about the time they spent in the United States of America. Mr John Florescu frequently asked them various questions about the camps, the host families, the multiple things they learned there, and especially about the cultural differences between Romania and America. We were also asked about our future plans regarding the University. Mihaela Stoicanescu, the recipient of the merit Scholarship and a returning alumnus for her second time in America, described her volunteer work at Derby Academy and Voice recognition experience. She then read us the EERC’s President welcoming letter. The get- together culminated with Mr. Suttle handing in the prizes to the winners of the Video Contest, the brainstorming child of Ms Denisa Dobrin. We had the chance to meet this year’s participants, to reconnect with old friends and to revive the unforgettable memories of the past years experiences. The time flew by and we left excitedly thinking about the future reunion.
