Sixth class set out bright and early for our tour of UCC this morning. Thankfully the rain had passed and it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day. The Quad looked fantastic on this May morning.
We met our guide ,the tour was historical and cultural in nature and included a visit to the Ogham Stone Collection, Main Quadrangle, University Gardens, Honan Chapel and the Crawford Observatory.
Our guide also told us the story of George Boole, UCC’s first Professor of Maths and founder of Boolean Logic.
We enjoyed out trip immensely and were very glad to hear that UCC is a green campus where natural resources are conserved, where energy efficiency is optimised and students are educated about waste management and climate change.
For a finish, we enjoyed our lunch in the Main Restaurant. We look forward to visiting this campus again in the near future.
