      Kris Schuberg BA ’90 and Eric Hartmann BA ’90, MAT ’94 traveled to Ireland in 2016 to visit their son Eamonn, who was studying at the University of Limerick. Schuberg hadn’t been to Ireland since 1988, when she participated in a Lewis & Clark overseas study program during her sophomore year. She says “it was indeed quite something to visit my son, studying abroad in the same country where I was an international student 29 years ago. I can’t say that Ireland was just as I remembered it–in some ways it was better! I think if someone had told me 29 years ago that I would be coming back to Ireland to visit my son, who would be turning 20 there just as I had, I would have laughed. I also might have said that this was just the crazy talk of a cleasai (Irish word for trickster).”
