Michael Lillis Social Studies class of '12

As a mature student I found the staff, my fellow students and the whole learning environment very supportive. I am glad I chose Carlow College.

Jacinta Hayden class of '13

I would describe Carlow College as friendly. The staff and fellow students are very welcoming and aim to do their best for everyone involved in the College. I loved my time in the College and I made some lifelong friends there.
