Read about one Immaculata student's experience in Ireland:

"Studying in Northern Ireland opened by eyes to an entirely new world of views, people, and experiences I truly thought I'd never be able to share in myself.  Being immersed in a totally new place really helped me to grow personally, and seeing how another culture works opened my eyes to the world.  Beware of study abroad though, because the travel bug will hit you... and it's extremely difficult to slow down, ha-ha.  But if ever given the opportunity, just go for it and don't look back." - Maggie K. '09
