Along with amazing opportunity to study like the Irish, I met the most amazing friends that I am still in contact with to this day! I had the opportunity to hold a baby sheep out in the country, taste the most amazing ice cream I have ever had, set my eyes on the beautiful Cliffs of Moher, as well as meet locals that I plan on going back and visiting in the future! Not only did I get to travel all around Ireland, but I was able to travel around Europe as well!

It's been just over a year from the anniversary of spending a semester in Dublin, Ireland through KEI. I miss it so much and think about how great my experience was everyday! I studied at Griffith College Dublin, which was in a good residential area and not too far from the city center and other fun places. I took four courses and they were very similar to classes I would have taken at my host university. Our excursions were the highlight of my time in Ireland and I was fortunate enough to do a lot of traveling on the weekends! KEI's program director, Olwyn, is the most down to earth lady and she helped us through anything and everything during my time in Dublin!

How can this program be improved?
More support on the Griffith campus for things such as registering for classes.

"Bhí mé an t-am de mo shaol." ("I had the time of my life.")

Before arriving in Dublin, I had zero exposure to foreign countries. I was scared and intimidated. However, the support that KEI provided upon my arrival was unparalleled, and I would not have adapted as quickly without my on-site director. The most influential thing I came back to my home university with was self-confidence. Traveling and meeting new people provided me with a confidence that I can take into my career and other components of my life. Because of my study abroad experience, I now have a clear path for my career, and I hope to help other study abroad students have the same experience I had.

How can this program be improved?
I would find a way to better prepare American students for the European education system.
