Kelsey Ashworth

Kelsey Ashworth

Hometown: Lancaster, PA
High School: Hempfield High School
Intended Major: Nursing

Why did you choose to attend MC?

Actually, I was visiting a school near Moravian, and I decided to stop by since I was in the area. I instantly fell in love with the town and the campus. I did more research when I got home, and found that Moravian College has everything I was looking for in a school. It's the perfect distance from my home; and it offers great academics, including a nursing major, a smaller student population (which means a more personal learning environment), athletics (intercollegiate and intramural), and an Equestrian Club. I was hooked!

What activities were you involved with in high school?

I played a lot of intramural sports in high school (basketball, soccer, etc.) and was involved in an annual school production called Dance Theatre (we performed two-hour shows full of dancing and great music). I also took horseback riding lessons and was in the yearbook club.

What clubs, organizations, or athletics do you currently participate in?

I am an active member of the Equestrian Club.

What clubs, organizations, or athletics do you hope to participate in?

I hope to join the Student Nurses Association, 26 Points (campus tour guides), intramural soccer, and Active Minds.

So far, what is the best thing about college life?

Meeting new people. People here at Moravian are so nice and welcoming (even the upperclassmen!), and there is a wonderful sense of community.

What is your favorite spot on campus? Why?

The soccer field. It is right in the middle of everything, and its really fun to sit on the hill and watch the games. It's also a really nice place to sit with friends and study when there isn't a game or practice going on.
