Taking Care of Yourself on Exchange

By Tatiana Morand, Visiting Student Blogger

Tatiana is a third-year English and Business student from the University of Waterloo in Canada. She’s thrilled to have the chance to travel across Europe and experience the lively literary scene of Dublin.

Going on exchange is a pretty stressful experience. You’re in a completely different country (or even a different continent!), surrounded by new people in a place you’ve never been… I could go on, but I think you see my point.

Got Game? Sporting some Irish Culture at the GAA

By Michaela Vitagliano, Visiting Student Blogger

Hi, my name is Michaela Vitagliano, and I hail from Boston. I am so fortunate to spend an academic year here in Ireland, studying at the historical and prestigious Trinity College.

By Kristin Fricke, Visiting Student Blogger

The Other Arran: Knee Deep in Mud with Trinity Geology

By Paul Smith, Visiting Student Blogger

“A field trip to Scotland (GL3324 – Geological Field Skills 1), which is a 2 week course before the term starts.” That was the only information I was given before I agreed. It ended up being a 10 credit class in ten days, and is in my opinion the best opportunity a visiting geology student could have been given. It amazing from a geological perspective, and it immediately threw me into what would become a tight-knit friend group.
