A visit from a Champlain College alum!

It’s Spring Break for our students here in Dublin, so they’re off enjoying themselves in far flung locations such as Turkey, Spain, France, and England.

That means a quiet week in the office for the Dublin staff, but that quiet was broken today by the arrival of Patrick Kenney (aka PK), a Champlain Abroad Dublin alum from our Fall 2009 group.  Patrick graduated from Champlain in 2011 with a degree in Graphic Design and Digital Media.  He now works as a designer for Warner Brothers Games in Boston.  He’s back in Dublin for Offset, Dublin’s Creative Festival.

‘Coming back to Dublin is like a homecoming.  The city was my home for 4 fantastic months, and I instantly felt comfortable being back here’, Patrick said, ‘Francis Curran [our design faculty member] opened my eyes to a world of design outside of America, and introduced me to the industry in which I now make my living.  Study abroad opened my eyes to the world around me, and took away a lot of fears I had around stepping out of my comfort zone’.
