Meet our StudentsAvery McLoughlinBusiness, Economics and Social Studies – BESSDrogheda Institute of Further EducationFrom the moment I entered Trinity College Dublin inFreshers week, I was welcomed with open arms fromstudents, lecturers and staff. One of the first thingsI was introduced to were the clubs and societies, whichare a fantastic way to meet new friends and try out newexperiences. I was encouraged to get out of my comfortzone and even joined the Snow Sports society (I don’t ski!).My course, BESS, is academically demanding but Trinityhas an abundance of supports that make the transitionto college smooth and the workload manageable. FromS2S mentors, college Tutors, Trinity Access supports andPeers and Library workshops, there is support there foreveryone to help you succeed. One thing I was concernedabout was the commute. I live in the countryside, about 90minutes from Trinity and commute in every day for classes.I adjusted to this quickly and find this time useful to relaxbefore class, read over notes or just rest before starting abusy day.Studying at Trinity is a life altering experience and I amproud to be part of the Trinity community.Amanda Jonaityte LawRathmines Collegeof Further EducationI was born in Lithuaniaand currently living in Meath.I commuted for my first yearand Trinity felt like my secondhome. I spent my first fewmonths getting used to the campus, finding all the nooksand crannies and very soon, I didn’t feel like a strangeranymore. Joining lots of different societies helped me tomake new friends and learn about different activities thatI could get involved in.I chose Trinity because of its reputation and location. Not onlywas I surrounded by brilliant students, teachers and societies,but also the history of Trinity and the history of Ireland’scapital city. Law was the course I chose as I always wanted tohelp people. In third year, I will have the opportunity to studyabroad in one of the many partner universities of Trinity. Fromsecond year, I can study modules outside of Law and canexplore new subject areas. My professors are very supportiveand always encourage me to do my best. Even the hoursof lectures and tutorials are manageable and give me timefor my own study in the library and the opportunity to stayinvolved with social activities and society events.I would describe Trinity as welcoming, memorable andadmirable. As a first year, I didn’t know anyone, but theywelcomed me on campus with events like freshers’ weekand meet-and-greets with S2S mentoring. I will alwaysremember my time at Trinity as positive and joyous,through all the different events and activities that I tookpart in. Even after two years, I still admire the beauty andhistory of Trinity – a history I am now a part of.6

Leah Heron ZoologyJana Gerks LawKillester College of Further EducationRathmines College of Further EducationIf you are passionate about something then it is worthgoing for it.I am German and currently live in Dublin. I chose Lawbecause I like the idea of representing something so muchbigger than myself in order to help people. Law is intriguingand quite flexible, which you do not expect – everythingis open to interpretation and is context-specific, andthat’s what I find extremely fascinating. Learning from theacademic staff at Trinity was incredible, as they are activelyengaged in the industry, bringing both theory and practiceto the classroom. One of my highlights for the year was thejunior mock trial which really brought Law to life for me.When I decided to make a career change, I wanted totest things out first with a one year FET course. Thecourse helped me to gain some experience in highereducation and figure out what I would like to study.I ended up doing two years in Killester College andcame to the realisation that I could actually go intostudy full-time. I applied to Zoology (via Science) atTrinity and fortunately, I got in!The first thing I did when I started was join theZoological Society. The society holds a bunch ofdifferent events, information sessions and workshopsthat helped me to determine my future career path.I loved it so much I ended up becoming the society‘ssecretary in my third year.The course itself was taught by leaders in the field ofzoology. I felt privileged to learn from them, ask themquestions and discuss different topics with them – andthey were always happy to have a chat. I also had theopportunity to volunteer with the science departmentand the zoology department during open days andgave talks on my experience.Trinity has a designated office for Mature Students,which really helped me throughout my first year ofstudy. At the beginning of first year, all the maturestudents are brought in together and you sit with themover lunch – we chatted, became friends, set up studygroups and are still friends to this day. Trinity offersevery kind of service you can think of and I made use ofthe likes of the counselling service and health facilities,sports centre and student learning supports. It was allof these supports, together, that helped me throughthe final years of my course.My top 3 tips for coming to Trinity would be to; familiariseyourself with the support structures and make sure to usethem (like peer mentors, tutors, IT services and the Students’Union), get involved with different societies and make newfriends, and build a structure around your study so you stayon top of everything (time management and organisationare extremely important when it comes to university life).Dublin is a melting pot of global culture with the perfectcombination of a capital city alive with business, but wherenature still finds it way. I loved to hop on the DART (train)with friends and ride out to the seaside town of Howth andthen come back to the city and enjoy its famous night life.Trinity is inclusive, achieving and vibrant. Inclusive, becausethe student body and staff are extremely welcoming andsupportive. Trinity not only offers opportunities to studentscoming through access routes, but also keeps up thesupport throughout your time there. Achieving, becauseof the outstanding quality of education and high calibre ofgraduates throughout Trinity’s history. Vibrant, because itis in the heart of the city, it offers such a variety of activities,sports, societies and academic events throughout the year.I loved every moment of my time in Trinity. It’s notalways easy, but the staff and students are there tohelp you to succeed. 7
