    Hello! As one of the students taking the opportunity to study abroad in Ireland I want to share my experiences so far. I am attending most of my classes at the Arcade campus center and haven’t really had a lot of experience at the Batavia campus. I saw a flyer on a bulletin board and sent an email to the listed address. The process was simple. I went to a couple meetings, signed up for the classes and obtained a student loan to pay for the trip. As the date draws near it becomes more real. In less than four weeks we will be in Ireland. I would advise anyone who wants to travel, abroad or otherwise, to consider going with the college. There are many places to choose from! What an exciting opportunity and when would one be able to pursue this type of opportunity again?
