Student Experiences at the University of Limerick
The years students spend in college anticipate to be some of the best years of their lives. Working hard every day to achieve a quality degree is important however the University of Limerick recognises the need for students to have an outlet by which they can meet new people, experience new things and of course, have fun! In the last month alone two large events have taken place at the University aiming to provide a well-rounded and enlightening student experience.
