With the Autumn semester coming to an end and Cork experiencing record breaking snowfall and freezing temperatures, UCC’s main quadrangle was decked in white and put everyone in the holiday mood. Last Tuesday night, students carefully made their way up to Devere Hall for a good cause and holiday cheer as they supported a charity concert in aid of Brú Columbanus -‘home from home’ accommodation for families with loved ones in Cork hospitals. Meanwhile, the Wonderful Winter Hat Photograph Competition was on for whomever could catch the best snapshot of their colleagues wearing their quirkiest winter hat! If you didn’t catch a photo, we hope you caught a glimpse! As UCC alumni made their way home to Ireland from the four corners of the globe, UCC hosted a Christmas homecoming in the Aula Maxima ceremonial hall, for friends new and old.
All the staff at the International Education Office wish our friends and colleagues around the world a very Happy Holiday Season and Best Wishes for 2011.
