I thought meeting other international students while abroad was rewarding. Not only are you going through the study abroad experience, but you can learn what it's like for student's with other worldly perspectives. I realized that in the US we form sort of a bubble, and UCC opened my eyes to so many other things out there.

My favorite part of studying abroad in Cork was my Early Start in Irish Musics class and my Irish Step Dancing class. I took both of them on a complete whim and am so glad that I got to learn these aspects of the Irish culture. Music and dance are both widely associated with Irish identity and every time I went to these two classes I had a smile on my face!

There are many different ways to learn. Before I went to UCC I imagined every college experience would be vaguely the same. After arriving at the University College Cork, I realized that schooling is different and it can be difficult to adjust. Don't be afraid to ask your classmates questions and try to be flexible.
