Mary Immacualte College is a wonderful college to attend particularly if you’re studying primary teaching. However, it can be argued one may not have the true college experience because of its compact size. Nonetheless, it has plenty of facilities and opportunities for its students. Many will strive from the close contact that is present between students and their lecturers. It is very much a community centred college and one in which provides great support to its students.
I had an amazing 4 years in Mary I. Couldn’t have loved it any more. This was partly to do with the social scene. Being a small college, you get to know the lecturers personally which I liked. The campus is quite small which may not suit some people and there are not many extra facilities, however being in Mary I means you have access to many of the University of Limerick’s facilities (gym, pool, library). There are issues with space in the library and parking also but Overall loved it.
