Video shows the emotional family roller-coaster of kid's first journey to college

They grow up so fast!

Heading off to college is an emotional experience.

Will you make friends? Will you be able to cope with the workload? Will you be able to mix the partying with the studying?

And that's just the students.

Families suffer too as their once little ones leave to earn their educational stripes for the future.

This video from Cmedia follows Johnny and Grainne as they say goodbye to their loved ones and hit the road to Limerick where they'll spend the next four years working toward graduation in 2020.

Oh, the feels!

Best of luck guys.
