Students Invited to Pursue their Passion Mondays at Moravian

New Summer Visit Program Focuses on Areas of Academic Interest

Bethlehem, Pa. June 13, 2012—To help prospective students understand the value of a Moravian education, the College will hold a new visit experience called Mondays@Moravian. Students are invited to pursue their passions this summer during one of five programs held on five Mondays in June and July.

Each week, a day-long program will center around particular academic themes; they include nursing (June 25), business (July 9), natural sciences (July 16), music/art/humanities/languages (July 23), and psychology/education/social sciences (July 30). For more information or to register online, visit www.moravian.edu/mondays.

The new program is designed to give summertime visitors more than just the standard campus tour. “At Moravian, we offer more—we think it’s important for prospective students to see our campus and get admissions information, and we also believe it’s important for students to learn about the academic programs that interest them and meet faculty members to get a better sense of the quality education that we offer,” said Ken Huus, vice president for enrollment management at Moravian.

The program starts each Monday with registration at 9:30 a.m. in the Haupert Union Building (HUB) that includes coffee and a light breakfast. An Admissions Information Session is held from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. On June 25, parents will begin the journey with Ken Huus, vice president for enrollment management, in Prosser Auditorium in the HUB. Students will join Kim Baird, assistant director of admissions, in the Priscilla Payne Hurd Academic Complex. From 11 a.m. to noon, all are invited to learn more about the featured academic programs of the day by engaging in meaningful conversation with faculty and learn about the curriculum and endless array of opportunities for learning in and out of the classroom.

After a light lunch and connecting with our enrollment team, faculty members, coaches, and other families, visitors will explore Moravian’s beautiful campuses that merge its colonial heritage with its state-of-the-art facilities. Moravian’s Twenty-Six Points student ambassadors will guide guests through classrooms, computer labs, athletics complex, dining facilities, and residence halls.

For those students that can’t attend on the specific dates, Moravian invites them to schedule a campus visit through its Moravian Experience (M.E. Campus Visit Program), visit www.moravian.edu/visit.

Moravian College encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. Anyone who anticipates needing any type accommodation or who has questions about the physical access provided should contact Kathi Roman at Katro@moravian.edu or 610 625-7880.
