This past May of 2016 I went to Bundoran, Ireland for a study abroad trip with a couple of schools. That is where we were staying although we traveled all around exploring different places and towns every single day. It was one of the best experiences, I meet so many people there and learned so many new things about their culture. The friends I made on the trip I will have forever, we are already planning more trips together. If you get the opportunity to go abroad, then take it. You don't want it to be five or ten years later looking back thinking that you should've went. And it'll be worth the whole experience.

Hello, my name is Zeinab and I’m originally from Ivory Coast (Cote D’Ivoire). Coming to Jefferson State Community College was one of the best decisions I’ve made. The faculty and staff are all great and always willing to help. As an international and first-time college student, the small environment helped me build closer relationships with my teachers and prepared me for my transition to a 4-year institution. Jefferson State has provided me with so many opportunities for intellectual, social, and emotional growth. I have enjoyed my stay there and now I’m ready for new experiences to come.
