NEW PALESTINE — While there’s no place like home for the holidays, studying abroad might make a close second.
Erin Komornik of New Palestine has spent the past four months living in Ireland studying at the University of Limerick.
Erin, a senior kinesiology student at DePauw University, was given an opportunity to further her education for a semester abroad. It was an opportunity she said she could not pass up. And she has found some differences in the people she has encountered.
“The Irish are much more relaxed than Americans … Both academically and culturally in general,” Erin wrote in an email from Ireland.
