CONTINUING WITH OUR monthly mixers, the Chicago Chapter of the Fulbright Association had its fourth get-together at the Restaurant-Bar Troquet in River North on August 12.

Alumni, board members, students and Friends of Fulbright had the chance to interact, share international stories and enjoy the nice weather. Jenni Schneiderman, our Director of Membership has been organizing these mixers. If you have any suggestions for places where to have them, please email Jenni at jenni.schneiderman@gmail.com

There has been four mixers this year so far, chances to meet new Fulbrighters.

By Elio Leturia— SEVENTEEN FULBRIGHTERS, among them Chicago Chapter board members, alumni and students gathered on the evening of June 10 at Troquet Bar to socialize, network and share their Fulbright experiences.

This is our second “mixer,” informal opportunities that aim to connect in a casual atmosphere, Fulbrighters and friends of Fulbright. Last night there were wine specials at this nice Gold Coast bar, and despite the rain, all of us had a great time.

Jenni Schneiderman, our Director of Membership, has been organizing these informal mixers. For suggestions about where to host future ones, please email Jenni at jenni.schneiderman@gmail.com

The next Fulbright mixer will be on Wednesday, July 9th, 2014. Location TBA. Mark your calendars!
