CCSU Alumni Describes Experience Working Abroad for the U S State Department. By Agnes Bates B S International Business 2006,Hello to all my friends and teachers at CCSU. These past two years in Tallinn Estonia have flown by I have been working in the Embassy EXEC section with the Ambassador and. Deputy Chief of Mission as a OMS office management specialist and have learned a lot There is so much to adjust to and learn. about when you come from the private sector into the Government including a billion acronyms At post I am also the Post Language. Officer Electronic Country Clearance Administrator Federal Women s Program Coordinator and Regional Outreach Participant. Aside from having the honor of representing the United States in Estonia and at many other countries Embassy events I also joined. the local Diplomatic Association and have gained many new friends from all over the world. The Embassy Regional Outreach program is an excellent way to get into the far reaches of Estonia and meet officials visit local busi. ness and schools and so forth I do enjoy talking with the kids in schools about the United States and at times wish I had taken a few. more college courses on the U S government and geography I have kids asking about the U S political system and information on. the States and of course lately the new Administration. Estonian culture is marvelous we have attended many concerts symphonies and art exhibits The medieval Old Town is a lot of fun. to explore Although with pork being the other white meat we do occasionally miss a real hamburger During the long long long dark. days you never appreciate sunshine until you do not see it for months fresh fruit and vegetables are a bit hard to find There is no. bulk shopping who could fit it in the tiny EU fridge and due to less preservatives and sugar most things expire quickly so you are. constantly going to the market, They told us before we came here that most people speak English and we would not need language class ummmm if you stay in.

We did not need to bring a car Between tram bus taxi and your feet you get around easily He attends the International school and has. made friends from all over the world He also has developed diplomatic skills as he attends regional outreach and Embassy events with me. meeting and shaking hands with dignitaries It is hard to tell he is only 14 as he is now 6 1. As for his international education We chose the international business IB program but I am not thrilled with it The concept is great and. the education is phenomenal BUT the amount of work I feel is far too much for a teen School days are 0830 to 1530 there are 3 hours. of homework on weeknights and a majority of the weekend is spent on homework and projects Nigel also joined the school Odyssey of the. Mind group where last year they competed in Hungary and this year they went to Slovakia However a benefit to this school is that it is. small His 9th grade has only 6 students so he has an advantage most kids do not get with teachers being able to instruct at the stu. dent s learning level Nigel has natural talent in Math and is now being instructed in the upper high school level They do the MAP testing. which I think is a marvelous program as it shows the student s year progress and they use it to note where they need to focus on for im. provement However at our next post we decided that he will switch for his final 3 years of high school to International High School with A. P courses although he can choose any IB certification and take the exam in senior year if he wishes. My oldest son Jonathan is now 21 and heading into his senior year at CCSU He is aiming for a teaching degree in Science but is also con. sidering continuing on for degree in bio ethics He has come to Estonia for the school breaks and enjoyed exploring Tallinn and can t wait to. come visit me in my next assignment So this brings me to our future We will shortly depart Tallinn and after some training in D C I will. be redeployed to my next post Kuala Lumpur Malaysia where I will be working in the Economic section of the Embassy.

CCSU Renews Partnership with the University of Concepci n Chile. CCSU recently renewed its institutional partnership with the University of Concepci n setting the stage for continued collaborative. research among faculty from both universities and future student exchanges Founded in 1919 the University of Concepcion was. the first regional university in Chile and shares many similarities with CCSU. CCSU students can study abroad at the University of Concepci n for a single semester or the full academic year Participating stu. dents pay tuition and fees to their home institution and arrange and pay for room and board locally While this program can ac. commodate students in many disciplines it is most suitable for students studying biological sciences chemistry engineering and. mathematics The language of instruction is Spanish. According to Dr Antonio Garc a Lozada Professor of Modern Languages and Faculty Liaison to this partnership It is increasingly. important that CCSU s students be better versed in the languages cultures and traditions of other world regions particularly Latin. America so we can build a more secure future for both the United States and the world As citizens of the world we must teach our. students the importance of working well with other countries to advance our common goals of peace and prosperity University of. Concepci n is one of the finest institutions in the Concepci n region and in the country The university s leadership in research and. graduate programs has had considerable influence on the country s cultural and scientific development and it is an important na. tional center of research in education mathematics physics biological and marine sciences health economics geography agricul. ture arts and Spanish language and literatures The University of Concepci n is a place of knowledge where distinguished faculty. and qualified students interact in everyday life, Students interested in studying abroad on this partnership should attend a Study Abroad Information Session A complete listing of. the Information Sessions for 2009 2010 is available on the Calendar section of the CIE website www ccsu edu cie.
