On the 23rd Anniversary of theRomanian-American University:
Experiencing and Observing the Socially Constructed Reality
Professor Ion Smedescu, the Founding Rector of the Romanian-American University, and Honorary Member of the Romanian Distribution Committee, often spoke passionately about the world of human creativity and shared subjective experience, by constantly pledging for both, on one hand, a better understanding of customers’ and prospects’ needs and expectations from our University, and on the other hand, having the right message and delivering it in the right time and right place, while responsibly and accountably teaching students to adequately apply what they have learned. Professor Ion Smedescu often quoted James Madison, always insisting on the need to accelerate the advancement and diffusion of knowledge (“the only guardian of the liberty” according to James Madison), and also recommending the same “best medicine in the world”, namely: “a long journey, at a mild season, through a pleasant country, in easy stages”.
As we all know, at the heart of our basic human experience there is our brain’s ability to preserve or alter our memories, which are transformed each time we revisit them. Allow us to also consider the 23rd Anniversary of the Romanian-American University as an opportunity to strengthen the memory, by recalling some older memories, making them feel vivid and putting them in relation with the present challenging time.
