Here's alittle thread for all students with a few useful links and some information to go with it.
The most useful links for most students at the moment:
AIT - College
Students Union - Students Union (Provides most of what you need to know as a new student, especially if not from Athlone) Any or all information can be provided by the union if you drop in also, they don't bite either as they're a friendly bunch!!!
The Grant - Concerning information on the grant and eligiblity.
Athlone - Most services in Athlone can be found here. (Pubs, Restaurants, Accomadation, etc)
(Bus and Rail timetables)
Here's some other links from the AIT site as they can be tricky to find and you never know when you might need them:
