Jason Quinn from Letterkenny loved his time in Sligo so much that he decided to stay on.
He said: “I am now the president of IT Sligo Students Union. I chose IT Sligo initially for the excellent facilities and modern campus. Once I arrived though, it was the sense of community and the feeling of belonging to the institute that gripped me. I am a Letterkenny man, but Sligo is definitely my second home. I couldn’t encourage people to come to IT Sligo enough, you won’t look back.”
Donegal GAA star Amy Boyle-Carr from Glenties said: “It is close enough to home that I can travel back to training in Donegal during the week and at weekends. Its a relatively small college when you compare it to those in Dublin or Galway, but you get to meet so many people as it is like a small community.
“The social aspect of it is excellent- there are so many sports teams or clubs you can join to meet new people.”
Finn Harps ace Ronan Gallagher from Carrigart added: “I had always wanted to experience living away from home for college and I felt IT Sligo was the best option for me. A few people in my local area had said how much they loved their time studying in Sligo. Whilst I live away from home, Carrigart is still only two hours away, so I am never too far away from my family”
