07/25/2014 Deadly Trip!
ACD is a tiny school, but great for actually immersing yourself within the Irish culture, learned tons about Ireland - Lynn University
07/16/2014 Worth It
I learned so much about functioning independently and how to adapt myself to new surroundings. I feel I grew up a lot and really learned how to take care of myself. - Seton Hill College
07/15/2014 Amazing
This experience taught me a lot about myself and gave me the courage to try new things and meet new people. It was an absolutely amazing experience, and I would go back in a heartbeat. - Johns Hopkins University
I learned more about myself. It was deff worthwhile! - Lynn University
This was the best experience of my life and everyday i still find myself wishing i could go back. I made the most amazing friends and i couldn't picture my life without them in it. school was fun and i actually didn't mind going. I made some crazy memories that i still laugh about today and will probably still laugh about when i... - Plymouth State University
Growing up in this generation as Americans we tend to live in our own little bubbles with little perspective on the world around us. Whether it be a town, a city, or an area such as New England we don't often look outside that little bubble. During my experience abroad I grew an understanding for how big the world around us real... - Plymouth State University
Studying abroad here in Ireland has helped me gain a lot of cultural knowledge and history. Choosing to study abroad with American College Dublin has been the best decision. I made a lot of new friends and got to experience things that I wouldn't have gotten to otherwise. This trip has made me appreciate Ireland so much more. ... - American College Dublin
I gained so much confidence and experience from the ACD study abroad program. It was my first experience living on my own and working things out for myself. The internship I had taught me so much and is still a big talking point on my resume when I go for interviews. I also gained lasting friendships and a desire to travel as mu... - Allegheny College
Living abroad taught me that I could be independent. Going by your self to another country is really a sink or swim type thing. You either have to learn to make friends, and get places on your own, or you will be alone in your room miserable. Luckily this experience changed me a lot and I grew into a new person in Ireland. I ma... - Mary Baldwin College
This trip was so worthwhile. I have never had so much fun in one week. Being in Dublin heightened the experience of the show for everyone involved. - Lynn University
05/26/2014 Great Craick!
Confidence and a desire for independence. The Irish culture is so much more laid back than America, and it was a welcome relief. I want to see as much of the world as I can now. - Plymouth State University
A student studying abroad with American College Dublin: Dublin - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
I learned more about myself than anywhere else. Also - coming from a well-to-do background, Ireland grounded my head allot. I didn't need anything crazy while there and just generally got to enjoy the country, people and history. When I got back to my university - money, cars, clothes generally had far less interest to me. I thi... - Lynn University
I gained lifetime friends in Dublin and it was definitely worthwhile but not long enough - Lincoln University of Pennsylvania
ACD is a great place to spend a few weeks in the summer. The program allows you to live in the center of Dublin and experience the city like you couldn't otherwise. Night life is phenomenal, and the country is small enough to have every significant sight within a short bus ride at most. I would recommend this program to absolute... - University of Minnesota

I gained experience living in another country with different people. Its certainly a change going from home to another country and I'm glad I got to experience it. It was definitely worthwhile. - University of Wisconsin - Green Bay
07/14/2014 Fantastic
Studying abroad you not only learn about the cultural but about yourself. It was worth it. - Lynn University
The streets of Dublin are littered with friendly international travelers! Going on this trip bolstered my confidence to go out and take chances. It's been my experience that people are pretty nice where ever you go and don't mind helping foreigners (except for London haha, don't know what's up with that place). Meeting new peopl... - University of Central Florida
06/17/2014 Brillant
This experience taught me a lot about myself. I liked it because we were on our own for the majority of the time, so we really got to experience Ireland the way we wanted to. It was an amazing time!! There was always something to do, and there were always people who wanted to do similar things. It was awesome because everyon... - Saint Vincent College
It was definitely worthwhile. I loved living on my own, even though I lived with other study abroad students and international students. I loved the culture and the the city. I loved the energy on the weekends to go out and have fun. I loved visiting towns and places outside of Dublin. I enjoyed being in Ireland during holidays ... - Seton Hall University
I was able to live in an amazing city while getting job experience. The staff at ACD are extremely helpful and friendly with students, becoming friends with them rather than simply teaching. I made some great friends from the school and throughout the city. - New York University
Studying abroad was something I always wanted to do. It helped me become more opened minded and become more independent and financially responsible. Plus the experiences I had will last forever. From the people I met to the places I traveled, everything was simply grand. For 4 months I essentially had one large family. Sure at... - Utica College of Syracuse University
05/27/2014 Good Craic
"Nothing ventured, nothing gained". My study abroad experience in Ireland taught me that what one gains in college is not solely a text book education, but experiences and meeting fascinating new people. Not only did i receive an excellent education, but i can honestly say it was the best experience of my life. I encountered a n... - University of Cape Coast

It was a great cultural experience and a great way to meet many other international students from many different places. I really enjoyed everyone and learning new things culturally. - Plymouth State University

I gained a lot of cultural knowledge as well as historical, as per my classes taken there. I also learned a lot about who I was and how I live on my own. It was definitely worthwhile and I would do it again if I could. - California State University - Long Beach
I gained culture and experience. - Plymouth State University
