Theo, hist

Why do you enjoy being a member of this society? why should a prospective student think of joining this society?

A good way to interact with people and a good way to engage with the college experience

Are you a member of any sports clubs?


Weekly living expenses?


Do you or have you lived away from home during college?


How much does your rent cost per month?


As a first year did you live in college halls?


Where would you recommend students live?

around the college but not necessarily in college. if you live in college you do get to engage with college life but perhaps too much. Not enough varied experience and quite expensive. Regardless of the opinions of the college, living in Dublin bit not in college is much less expensive.

How would you recommend this college to a friend?

If you like theory and dont feel that practical education could benefit you in any way, then this is the college for you.
