Yufei Huo - “My Start At Maynooth University”


Yufei Huo

I come from china and I live on campus at Maynooth, study accounting for my master degree. I enjoy reading, swimming, socializing with friends and touring etc. I am an honest easy-going guy and I like to make friends - the more the better!

When I first walked into Maynooth University, I was attracted by its beautiful campus. There are two campuses, one is North Campus, a very modern campus well equipped with all sorts of teaching facilities. Another one, contrary to the style of north campus, is much older. The South Campus was built in 18th century and has a magnificent towering church.

To be honest, this is my favourite part of university, and lucky me, I even got a chance to visit the church. It’s truly awesome inside. It retains the original 18th century features with grand altar in front, everywhere is well decorated with frescos or statues.  The historic buildings outside were built to encircle the church at one side, also forming a big square in the middle with green lawn. Some ivy creeps upon parts of wall outside the building; on a clear sunny day, soft yellow rays shine down and reflects off the shiny green leaves, making it so beautiful just like a picture scroll.
