One of the things that I like the most about RCSI is the fact that it is small. Unlike many universities, which have huge campuses, I can meet my friends talk to them regularly. The new common area in 26 York Street allows me to interact with other students easily and the couches and study pods make discussions and group studies easy to organise, thus making assignments more fun to do. I also don't have to worry about my duty as a Muslim, as RCSI has two prayer rooms on campus which makes me more focus and comfortable during my studies.
RCSI also has many clubs and societies (that are free to join) for students to enjoy and take their minds of studying. I, myself joined a number of clubs and societies, such as the Drama Society, the Islamic Society, Archery Club, Climbing and Mountaineering Club. I tried and did many new things and have so far gained a lot of new experience, such as performing in a musical Grease and competing in an archery competition. I have had the opportunity to meet lots of new people and made many new amazing friends that have helped to make my life at RCSI more enjoyable and memorable.
