RECAP: A look back at some on-campus events since our last issue.
Spanish art and flowers:

The Spanish Club sponsored a trip to the Guggenheim Museum in NYC on March 16. Thirty-two students and faculty members enjoyed a day of great art, including professors Carmen Ferrero, Nilsa Lasso-von Long and Claudia Mesa. On March 27, the club ushered in the season by making Mexican paper flowers, demonstrated by Mirta Pimentel. The Spanish Club meets most Tuesdays in the HUB for lunch and conversation.
Monocacy Creek Clean-Up (March 24):
Monocacy Creek is looking good, thanks to the efforts of 45 Moravian students, faculty, and their spouses and kids. The Saturday morning cleaning effort was followed by an organic lunch.

Moravian Instrumental Petting Zoo (March 30):

 

 

Third graders at Spring Garden Elementary School got a chance to see, hear, touch, and ask questions about musical instruments thanks to a visit from members of Moravian's clarinet choir and woodwind techniques class. The idea was to help the grade-schoolers choose the band or orchestra instruments they'll be learning next year. It was also an opportunity for the Moravian students, most of whom were music education majors, to get some experience in a classroom. "A win-win situation for everyone," says Deborah Andrus, who organized the program.

Visitors from the East (March 15-30):

You may have noticed a group of six smiling, picture-taking Japanese women on campus in March.  They were students visiting from Osaka -Ohtani University, located in Tondabayashi, Bethlehem’s sister city. The students, pictured here with various Moravian friends and hosts, enjoyed a study tour of the American educational system with visits to pre-school, elementary, and secondary schools during the day and dorm stays on north and south campus with Moravian host students during the evenings.  Jennifer Creamer, director of international studies, acted as tour guide/ translator during the two week trip and bought the students into several Moravian classes to observe and to answer questions about Japan.
