AS EXAMS finish up at the University of Limerick this week, a group of UL students have released a stunning new dance video, showcasing their talents across the UL campus.

The ‘Campus Dance’ video is the product of several months’ work following on from a massive response to a social media call-out asking students to name their favourite parts of the UL campus, which was voted Best Student Campus at the Education Ireland Awards 2019. 

A group of seven Irish World Academy dancers and five musicians together with student videographers created the video, which features original music and choreography set against a host of locations across the UL campus. 

This includes the Glucksman Library, Plassey House, the UL Pontoon, the International Athletics Track, the Living Bridge and the roof of the Main Building.

One of the stars of the video, fourth year Irish World Academy student Jake Madigan from Meelick, Co. Clare, said: “My favourite place on campus is definitely the Academy building. Being on the top floor of the Academy is a great place to overlook the Living Bridge and the river. I was thrilled to be asked to be involved in this video project. It was a great way to finish a great four years by showing off the campus and getting to work with really talented people around UL.

Exams at the University of Limerick finished up this week and 14,000 students leaving the campus to start their summer.

More than 2,500 of those students have said ‘goodbye’ to their academic home and the stunning UL campus for the last time until they return briefly to graduate in August.
