Studying abroad is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It provides a cultural knowledge of the world that you can’t get anywhere else, and it also expands your experience beyond the classroom. West Liberty University has been offering study abroad programs for a few years. Although they can be a bit pricey, students are encouraged to take on the adventure.

In addition to France and Poland, Germany was another study abroad destination for Hilltoppers this past summer. 16 students total, nine from WLU and others from Fairmont, WVU, and WVU of Parkersburg, traveled to Würzburg. The trip lasted from July 1 to 16, and it was led by Dr. Miriam Roth Douglas.

Unlike the other study abroad trips, the students who attended this one came from especially diverse academic backgrounds. Education, Criminal Justice, Math, Political Science, English, and Biology were just some of the majors that were represented.
