The week before classes started Orientation Week helped me find new friends and settle down in this city.

During our time in London, the faculty leaders decided to give us a long weekend to travel by taking Monday off of class. This year we decided to head to Dublin, Ireland.

We left Friday, June 14, after class. We took a train to Holyhead, Wales. From Holyhead, we got on a ferry that took us to Dublin. The trip was very tiresome, because we were traveling during the middle of the night. We arrived in Dublin around 6 a.m. on Saturday.
