Study Spots On and Off Campus

The World of Trinity

By Sarada Symonds
Visiting Student Blogger

While living in a new country is a pretty exciting experience, you also have to somehow find the time to study. Even though you might have less homework, it’s better to start preparing for exams early, since they’re a huge part of your grade. If you’re like me and have lots of free time between classes, it’s important to find places around campus where you can block out distractions and focus on work. Here’s a few local spaces I found that were great for studying.

Giving it a whirl: Dancing with the DU Dance Society at Intervarsities

The World of Trinity

By Michaela Vitagliano

 

One of the best ways to both integrate and make friends at Trinity is through societies. At the beginning of the year, Front Square was teeming with colourful stands, goodie bags, and joyous voices as each society tried to reel in a dazed looking student. Naturally I joined way more than I should have; emptying out my change purse in a flat twenty minutes.  Each society handed me a card, all with different student discounts ranging from burritos at student prices to free entries at clubs.

It seems like I just arrived in Trinity College but it has already been 3 months since my adventure here started. I had never been to Dublin or Ireland before so I didn’t know what to expect. I just got on the aeroplane and hoped for the best. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.

A Day in the Life – Michelle Lau Chai Hong

Study at NUI Galway

Michelle Lau Chai Hong  is an international student from Malaysia earning her MSc Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety.

“ Ring……” It is my alarm ringing to tell me it is a new day!

As usual, I quickly wash and get myself ready to go to the university. The university is just 20 minutes by foot from the place I live and there is a “park and ride” bus that can cut my journey to half the time.

My class starts at 9 am and on the way to the class, it is normally the time to grab a coffee or get some food. I meet my course mates and we have a good chat before the class starts. The lecture starts at 9am sharp, followed by a 10 minute break after an hour lecture. The break makes me feel better after an hour of study, because I get some fresh air and…

Irish Language Classes at Trinity

The World of Trinity

By Michaela Vitagliano

Visiting Student Blogger, Yale University

Coming from a high school that was predominantly filled with Irish-Americans, I was not thrown for a loop when I saw Saoirse /Seer-sha/ or Meabhdh /Mayv/ scrawled on name cards at a party function. The two that got me, however, were Colm and Eoin which I mistakenly pronounced as /Kohlm/ and /Ey-oh-in/. Thank goodness I hadn’t come across a Caoimhe that night, for I am sure I would have said something along the lines of /Kow-im-hay/ which is drastically different from the correct /Qwee-va/.
