Orientation could not have gone better, but now it was time to say our good-byes and head to our new homes for the next ten months! #TeamLIMERICK and #TeamCORK all piled into a van with Aimee and headed down the countryside to “the South”. I found it funny how they refer to it as “the South”, because when I think of “the South” I think of sunshine, the beach, and Disneyworld. Needless to say, it rained all the way down, so I think our interpretations of “the South” are slightly different. I did however, stay awake for the majority of the trip, and am here to confirm that Ireland is as green as everyone thinks it is! The rolling mountains were endless, but so beautiful that you did not want to look away. We also drove by the bridge where they filmed Harry Potter, and my inner nerd couldn’t grab my camera fast enough. Finally, 5 hours later we pulled onto the campus of CIT. It may have been a dreary day, but the tour of campus was truly amazing. I now got my “Big School” experience: student population 9,000 (a little bigger than Merrimack). The buildings were old, but full of character. My personal favorite of course, was the gym. The building is wood, with circular windows that reminded me of a boat. Funny enough it is referred to as “Noah’s Arc”. It is safe to say that I am ready to become a member of the CIT community, and further my education by getting my masters in International Business!
