#CampusLife - International Students & votes from abroad

Posted on April 14, 2016

Trinity life for International Students - Thank you to those who have graduated and voted from abroad

I grew up in Cork but the family moved to Dublin when I was 14, so throughout my time as a Law student at Trinity, my family home was in Dublin – and for all Dublin students, it is great to have family support close by. So I know it can be very difficult for international students who may have travelled long distances to study in Trinity, far from their family homes. In 1989/90, when I was President of Trinity Students Union, and student welfare was a big priority for us, we kept an open door policy and all of us as SU officers worked hard to ensure students had as much support as they could get, particularly international students.

International Students are to this day very important to the Trinity community - I want to wish you all best of luck with the exams. Also to say a great big Thank You to all those Trinity alumni who have moved abroad following graduation, who are voting now from Australia, the US and Africa, among other places - and who have already given me their No.1 vote and sent kind messages of support! If re-elected, I hope to continue to raise any issues that you as graduates living abroad would like me to raise in the Seanad. Thank you!

Trinity College Dublin organised an event last week 'Meet the Candidates', where all 16 #TCDSeanadElection candidates were given 4 minutes each to speak to the audience. It was also live streamed on Periscoope TV for anyone who couldn't make it. 

I took the opportunity to run through my Trinity life, my legal career and my Seanad record. Here are my 4 minutes - #VoteIvanaBacik No.1

At the Lincoln Gates, TCD heading inside for the nominations' announcement - Seanad Election 16

I started as a student at 17, becameTrinity College Students' Union President in 1989/1990 during which I nearly went to prison for providing information on Abortion Rights along with the other officers, never missed a Trinity Ball, partied in the The Pavilion Bar, crammed in the Berkley Library Trinity College, ate chips in the The Buttery, debated in the The Phil, dined in the Common Room, rubbed shoulders with the academics, have lectured in the School of Lawsince October 1995 and in 2007 was first elected to Seanad Éireann as a Dublin University/TCD panel Senator. I would love your support to use the next 5 years to effect legislation, shape debates and bring your issues to the floor! Please consider giving me your No. 1 Vote! Vote Ivana Bacik No.1 #TCDSeanadElections
