Visitors from Vermont!

We had two fantastic visitors from Vermont to our Dublin campus this week.  Paula Willoquet-Maricondi, Dean of Communication and Creative Media, and Suzanne Glover, Program Director for Graphic Design and Digital Media were here for two days at the start of the week.  The aim of the visit was to discuss ways in which the Champlain Abroad Dublin campus can better serve the CCM Division, and also for the Dublin staff to showcase all that we do here and also what a fantastically creative city Dublin is.

In addition to meeting with a lot of students and faculty, we managed to meet the staff at the Centre for Creative Practices (thanks Monika and Ian!), visit the Dublin Writers Museum, and take in a class visit to the Chester Beatty Library.  We also managed to have a pint with Award Winning filmmaker and Champlain faculty member Barrie Dowdall in the legendary Library Bar.  It doesn’t get any better than that!
