By Ana Berbel, Distribution Manager

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.

We happened to find some good deals for show tickets and bus tickets, and finally got the excuse to go this past weekend.

Can you name something that occurs twice a year? We do adjust our clocks biannually to accommodate daylight savings, but I am not referring to this practice. A solar eclipse happens at least twice a year, and Americans will get to experience a rarity this year.

By Gabriella Pozell, Staff Writer

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.
