I will be attending the National University of Ireland at Galway, a sweet institution that’s been around since 1845. It’s got 17,000 students (!!!!) with 2,000 of them being international. They’ve got a lot of old Neo-Gothic style buildings as well as fancy modern ones too, and they’ve got great amenities such as a gym, clubs, ways to volunteer, and student apartments. I’ll be living in student apartments called Gort na Coribe, about a 25 minute walk from campus. Since I’m a history major, I’ll get to take a lot of cool history classes at the University and take advantage of everything it has to offer. Classes start super early in January but end in late March, with a week and a half Easter Break/reading week, and a month long of finals. I’ll be there for a total of 5 1/2 months, and I can’t be more excited.
