Back to the Grind

Happy Tuesday Everyone,

So, we made it through the first week back! I hope you are all settling back into college life after the holiday season. Personally, I’m delighted to be back after a month’s holiday and I am feeling very well rested and ready for action with my course.

For those of you who are not necessarily feeling the transition back to college after the exams, please feel free to contact anyone here at The Hub in Áras Mac Léinn. We are more than happy to advise you on the services available to you both on and off campus.

2018 marks a very exciting year for the newly established WELL Crew (Wellness, Entertainment, Leisure & Lifestyle). Just a few exciting upcoming events/programmes to mention are Operation Transformation, Mystery Meal Challenge and Lip-sync Battles. Everyone is welcome to take part in all of these events or please come to visit us even if you would like to be a spectator and spur the amazing participants on.

Just a reminder that The Kitchen is open to all students at the following times:

Monday – Friday 8.30am-10am

Monday – Thursday 12pm- 6pm

Friday 12pm – 5pm

Saturday 12pm- 6pm

Sunday 3pm – 7pm

The Kitchen is bookable by all students outside of these hours by visiting the following website:

The Community Connector, Niall, is back this semester as well. He hosts TGI Fridays at The Hub every week between 5pm- 8pm, and Global Lounge every Saturday in The Hub from 12pm-3pm. These are friendly environments where students can come and watch movies or play board games, and always involve free nibbles and tea. Niall works with students in an easy-going, non-directive way to support them and make new social connections.

If you have any questions big or small regarding anything on or off campus, please feel free to pop into The Hub where myself or any of the members of the WELL Crew will be happy to assist. I look forward to seeing you all over the semester.

Mise le meas,
