I graduated in June 2011 with a B.A.(Honours) in Sociology and History. 2011 also marked my eightieth year. I enjoyed the whole experience of the three years in Maynooth University as a mature student and found all of the staff, including the Professors and Lecturers, particularly in the Sociology Department, very helpful indeed. I would commend the Sociology staff for the help they offered a struggling mature student and their friendly attitude and humanitarian interaction qualities during my three years of University. I am sure that the helpful and friendly atmosphere will continue and that mature students in the future will benefit as I did."
