Rutgers Hears About Summer 2008 in Armenia


Last Wednesday, February 20, 2008 AGBU participated in the Internship Information Session organized by the Armenian Student Association (ASA) of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

AGBU representatives spoke about the Yerevan Summer Intern Program (YSIP) and the newly launched Study Abroad Program in Armenia. Over 20 students attended the event to hear about exciting opportunities for students of Armenian heritage. Especially popular was the personal testimony of Nayiri Panossian, a YSIP alumna and the past Vice-President of the Rutgers ASA, who recounted her story of interning at the American University of Armenia (AUA) and her unforgettable summer in Armenia.
