Dagmar Irrig is currently serving as the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Program) Young Ambassador at UNCG! Please contact her with any questions you might have about study abroad!

Here is some more information about Dagmar:


I am a rising senior studying Economics and German. I just returned from studying abroad at the Universität Mannheim, where I studied for two semesters. I began the experience with an intensive language program, which was a great way to refresh my German. While abroad I traveled throughout Germany and focused on immersing myself in the culture and language, whether it be attending a traditional German Confirmation, New Year's Party, watching soccer, or simply doing nothing on Sundays. I never wanted my time abroad to end which further motivated me to get involved in spreading the word of how brilliant studying abroad is! I am now a DAAD Young Ambassador, and served as the student liaison for the UNCG German Fulbright Summer Institute. After graduating this May I hope to return to Germany to complete a graduate degree. Email:
