There's support available - college health unit, dentistry unit, counselling facilities. There's always scholarship and research opportunities cropping up throughout the year which is great to get experience. Christmas Market is lovely. Close to town for shopping, bowling, cinema, restaurants,nightlife and close to Salthill for a walk on the prom, the beach when it gots hot, swimming pool, cafes, rides in summertime.
