Since high school, Paul McGonigal has loved the German culture and language. He wanted to study abroad as soon as he could. While enrolled at Millersville, McGonigal was given the opportunity to attend Marburg, the university he attended while abroad. His studies consisted of intensive German classes for half of a semester and then normal classes with German students for the second half. This allowed for a more relaxed feeling, which enabled him to travel extensively around Europe.
McGonigal, a senior international studies major with a minor in German, decided to attend Millersville upon discovering its international studies program. He originally chose Millersville for the reasonable tuition and great reputation. McGonigal has since fallen in love with the school.
“Have no doubt in your mind that studying abroad will be the most amazing time of your life. Even if it may seem daunting in the beginning and scary the first days there, if you stick it out it will leave you with such memories you will never forget,” said McGonigal.
