Fulbright University is a private, not-for-profit university in Ho Chi Minh City funded primarily by the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Education and Culture. The Fulbright School is a diplomatic partnership between the US and Vietnamese governments. Our school had the opportunity to take part in a tour of the current campus in District 7 as part of our university advisory. The reason for this was to introduce our older IGS students to additional options that they can follow after Class 12.
The school tour began on Sunday, March 27, 2022 at 4 p.m. with the participation of members of Grades 9 to 12 and the teachers, Mr. Steier, Ms. Mai and Mr. Kehm. All participants met in the entrance hall of Fulbright University, where we were welcomed by Fulbright University staff and students. The students introduced us to the facility and the program, and then went to a nearby café to wait for a private concert. Fulbright University had prepared a welcome concert for us and the new students. At around 5:45 p.m. the concert started and during the performance our school also had three performances by Class 10 students, An, Luong and Minh. The concert ended at around 8:30 pm.
This was a new experience for our school, especially for the students who took part in the excursion as it is a very good option for those students who want to study in Vietnam. We were amazed by the hospitality of the university staff and students. They all made sure that we received a good insight into Fulbright University life.
