WHAT HE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Meeting new people and exploring the sights of Cork and the surrounding region.”
WHY HE’S BLOGGING “To give others an idea about what it’s like to study abroad as well as to have a record of my experiences to look back upon in the future. The blogs were a great resource for me when I was making study abroad plans and I hope that mine will be similarly useful to those making the decision to spend a year away from Holy Cross.”
