Fall 2016 Participant
The culture adjustment is a real thing, and it is okay to not be having the time of your life 24/7. The social media pictures make it seem that way, but it is difficult sometimes. Everyone goes through it, you are not weird or alone if you experience it.

Micah Katheryn Melia, Early Start Fall 2013 Participant
The Early Start Archaeology Program was by far the most unique part of my experience at UCC. I used this class to fulfill the archaeology course requirement of my Anthropology. This was an exceptional way to experience archaeology. The program took place over 4 weeks before the start of fall term. In addition to class meetings we took 4 field trips around Ireland. In each of these trips, we visited sites we discussed in class. Some of the places included Galway and the Aran Islands, Dublin and Meath, as well as many towns around the County of Cork. We saw old monastic sites, ringforts (a settlement type that was common in Ireland historically), and Megalithic tombs, and abandoned castles. I know I would never have seen most of the places we visited without this course. It was an incredible introduction to Ireland and Irish history.

Early Start Fall 2018 Participant
I learned that you will meet different people who have different values and ideals but you get to understand how the world is different. I think everyone should go into studying abroad with an open mind and to be willing to adjust to the cultures they are in. The cultures are so interesting and it is important everyone indulges in them.
