Study abroad student, Joel Rhodes, offers his advice to incoming students.
Come a few days early to settle in and get acclimated. Get used to your apartment, explore the city and campus, and meet people. By the time orientation and classes begin; you will be adjusted and ready to take on everything else.
Try not to get too overwhelmed. Things will work out, and it will all be worth it in the end. You will have learned so much in terms of independent living, yourself, Ireland, and the world!
