“In the summer of 2013, I studied abroad in Dublin, Ireland, at Dublin City University through the CIEE program. During my three-and-a-half weeks abroad, I was fortunate to experience both the city life and countryside of the Republic, as well as Belfast in Northern Ireland. I visited the breathtaking Cliffs of Mohr, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and famine memorials throughout the West of Ireland, just to name a few. Studying abroad was easily the best experience of my life and left me with more than just a newfound understanding of Ireland. I came home with great friends from all across the United States and more self- confidence as well as a sense of increased independence. Studying abroad changed my life and allowed me to grow in multiple ways.” — Courtney Mower ’15 was a Biochemistry major with a minor in Criminology.
