Celebrate St. Patrick's Day by Studying Abroad in Northern Ireland

March 17, 2014

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you wearing your green and pinching others who aren’t? If you’re getting in the spirit of St. Paddy’s, check out what this ISEP student has to say about studying abroad in Northern Ireland at the University of Ulster:

“The campus is GORGEOUS: beautiful architecture, every shade of green. There was this one pub a little walk away. It was always so interesting and fun to grab a pint there and talk to the people. They are always so open and friendly – everyone there is friendly. I could sit down next to a complete stranger and we would have a deep and intellectual conversation. There is just such a welcoming atmosphere.” ISEP student from the University of Northern Colorado

If you’re more of a visual person, maybe you’ll be intrigued by this photo of the land they call “40 shades of green,” taken by an ISEP student who studied at Ulster:

“On a bus tour of the Dingle Peninsula we saw the most amazing views of Ireland’s green countryside. It’s really neat how each field is a different shade of green. For miles and miles all you see are green rolling hills speckled with white dots that are sheep.” - Hanna Domas, University of Vermont
