On 14 March 2007, our University had the honor of welcoming Her Excellency, Marta Moszczenska, the Canadian Ambassador to Romania. Her Excellency visited the Department of English as part of her journey in Oradea, a journey which had the objective of strengthening the economic relations between our countries.
Marta Moszczenska found it important to visit a university in our town .It is our honor that she chose to visit us, a visit which could not happen without the help of Professor Ecaterina Hantiu, one of our professors who deals with Canadian Studies.
During her short visit Her Excellency was received by our Rector and then she talked with the English majors and visited our library.
The majority of the students present at the discussion were surprised by her kindness and the Ambassador gained the sympathy of students and teachers alike.She briefly presented her career and her aims as an Ambassador, and then student had the opportunity to ask questions. Most of the students were interested in the possibilities of learning and working in Canada. At the end of the discussion she received a present from the students made by one of them, and she promised when she next comes to Oradea, she would stay for a longer period of time.
Following the visit at PCU, the Ambassador visited the Local Government and few local companies, including Celestica, the only Canadian company in Oradea.
Seeing her briefly at PCU we hope that Her Excellency will honor us with her presence soon, for a longer time so that we can have the possibility to have a more detailed discussion.
