Campus notes for Nov. 20
Tate studying in Galway
Amanda Tate, the daughter of Jim and Mary Tate of Marshall, is studying in Galway during fall semester 2013 through the Office for Education Abroad at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, and St. John’s University in Collegeville. Tate is a junior English major at CSB.
The Galway program gives students an opportunity to explore the history, culture, literature and sociology of Ireland. While students are exposed to Gaelic as a living language, courses are taught in English. The focus is on a structured curriculum, leaving room for the exploration of unique opportunities presented by the intellectual and cultural resources of Ireland. Located in Spiddal, a rural village outside of Galway, students are housed in cottages at the Park Lodge, a family-run institution.
