Ireland {on campus}

We visited a number of colleges and universities
and the majority of photos I took were of things like
furniture, architecture & anything that seemed unique to the campus.
We toured various buildings at each college or university
and I especially enjoyed seeing some beautiful, old architecture.
[I'm a sucker to windows and doorways!]

...unique finds along the way
beautiful stained glass window at Mary Immaculate College
Who wouldn't want to get their coffee from this "truck" at University of Limerick?
On display at GMIT Letterfrack and Urban Outfitters is apparently to be in negotiations with the student/designer. 
Genius idea! I found this in the women's room at NUI Galway.

When I first started working in higher ed, six years ago,
I'll tell you one of my career goals was to work on a campus
with beautiful architecture...and I am happy to
say I reached that goal in coming to Bridgewater State.
Check out these beauties!

I toured all these schools (and saw more of Ireland) for work!  
I kept reminding myself I was working all week.
