Maybe there could be a special Students section on the forum, for both students keeping in touch, and also for general student-style questions.
As there will ( very soon ) be more game development students, than actual game develppers, in Ireland, I think this could only help keep them in contact with each other, promote gd.ie, and maybe even get a few of them working together as a team.
Also, a Work In Progress / Show Finished Work, section might not be a bad idea. I really enjoy seeing what other people in Ireland are working on.
Will post these two to the suggestions section now.
