Developing a community spirit and making sure that students settle in well to university life is our priority. As a result, in 2012, we recruited Residential Assistants (RAs) from the student body in the village who acted as liaisons between students and Corrib Village management. This initiative was a resounding success and will be continued in the academic year 2013/14. Responsibilities of RAs include guiding and mentoring students, as well as assisting with the organisation of activities throughout the year, from movie nights to soccer tournaments, pamper evenings and much more. Take a sneak peek at what has been organised for this term alone by downloading our 2nd Semester Activity Plan.
