Studying abroad in Ireland

March 29, 2018

Max Lorber graduated from SMCC in December 2017 and is now studying at Cork Institute of Technology in Cork, Ireland. He is one of two Maine community college students participating in this year’s George J. Mitchell Scholarship Exchange. His account of his first few weeks in Cork was recently published in SMCC’s student newspaper, The Beacon.

As you may know, the Maine Community College System is now taking applicants for the George J. Mitchell scholarship, a program that pays for a student to go to Cork, Ireland, for a semester to study at the Cork Institute of Technology. I was the recipient of this scholarship last year, along with another SMCC student, Michael Marino, and we are both currently here in Ireland enjoying the rare educational experience of studying and traveling in a different part of the world.
