US Consul General Mr. Eric Meyer visited AlmaU
On November 19th US Consul General Mr. Eric Meyer has kindly accepted the invitation and visited AlmaU along with Assistant Public Affairs Officer Stephanie Straface and American Spaces Coordinator Elmira Kireyeva. It has been an honor for our International Office and the whole University to welcome Mr. Meyer.
U.S. Consul General gave an interactive guest lecture in the format of a round table to the students majoring in Regional Studies and studying English Language. Mr. Meyer talked about his exciting story of becoming a diplomat, collaboration between United States and Kazakhstan as well as the whole Central Asian Region. Students got a wonderful chance to ask questions and get tips on learning several languages and becoming a diplomat. Mr. Meyer inspired all participants to be the best representatives of their countries no matter where they live, study or work, to be proud of their heritage and open to the world.
AlmaU has several strong partners in the United States, including Saint Cloud State University and the Babson College. Diverse pool of our faculty, staff and students includes alumni of the US Department of State sponsored programs such as Fulbright, FLEX and IVLP.
