Savremena hosts the presentation of University of Redlands

On Tuesday, 30 January, International School Savremena, in association with YouGrad Serbia, a College Counselling Centre that specialises in helping students find, prepare for, and apply to universities abroad, organised yet another presentation of a university for its students who are still searching for the right school to continue their education at. This time, Savremena’s guest was University of Redlands, California, and the students who had always dreamt of studying in the United States were particularly eager to ask numerous questions about this school.
