My name is Danny Gallagher, and I am your Entertainment / Communications Officer for the forthcoming year.
Welcome back to all our returning students and a warm welcome to all first years, international and mature students. For fresher’s, it can take time to adjust to third level education. Meeting new classmates and adjusting to new timetables can be challenging. However, I’m sure you will find time fly in as you master it all with ease.
College can give you the best experience of your life, making new friends and memories that you will never forget. So go out, meet new people and enjoy college life to the max.
I have just finished a 4 year degree in Sports Coaching & Performance here at LYIT and the best advice I can give is to get involved. There are many different clubs and societies here on campus which are a great way to have the craic and meet new people.
The Students Union are located in the An Danlann building upstairs in the S.U office and will help you as much as we can, also helping class reps with organsising class parties, outings, or events. Every class has the chance to elect a class rep, who will be responsible for dealing with any matters within the class which can be brought to the Students Union or Head of Department. The class rep will be elected in September and the chosen person will receive a day’s training. (also receiving a class rep hoody)
The Pulse Nightclub is our official LYIT venue this year, as some of you know the Pulse has hosted some of the biggest nights, bands, DJ’s and acts in the North West over the years and once again LYIT are delighted to be working closely with one of Ireland’s best renowned nightclub’s. The main student night is on Wednesday’s, which proved to be a massive hit with the student’s last year, not only providing us with cheap and very affordable nights out but also providing us with top class DJ’s/Acts, theme nights, entertainment and great nights out all round for all of us here.
