American Corner Banjul Hosts Mini College Fair

The United States Embassy Banjul’s Public Diplomacy section wrapped up its activities for this year’s International Education Week with a mini college fair hosted at the American Corner Comium.  The fair featured Mandela Washington Fellowship alumni as representatives of their host universities during their Fellowships. More than 50 high school and university students attended the fair.  With 11 universities represented, the Mandela Fellowship alumni were on hand to answer students’ questions about the admissions process, on-campus experience and Fellowship experience.  The Embassy’s Cultural Affairs Assistant and Education Advisor also held information sessions for participants.  The students were enthusiastic and grateful for the opportunity to learn more about study in the U.S.
