To sound somewhat cliché, putting St Patrick’s College Maynooth on my CAO was probably the best decision I have ever made. As I am about to embark on my final year here in St Patrick’s College I am filled with conflicting emotions, on one hand I’m excited to see what opportunities will come my way after college and on the other hand I am saddened to think that I won’t be returning to St Patrick’s every day.
At this point in my time spent in college I have learnt things I didn’t think possible, discovered things about myself that I didn’t know existed and most importantly I have made friends who I know will stay with me long after I leave college. I walk into college every day smiling because I know I’m going to attend a lecture where I’m acknowledged, the lecturers know you as a person; not just a number. When people ask me what is it about theology that I like so much I just end up smiling and saying “everything”, from the vast curriculum to the on-campus experience, There isn’t one thing about studying Theology in St Patrick’s that I dislike. So yes to sound clichéd, coming to St Patrick’s College Maynooth was the best decision I have ever made.
