What is a MoPaw?

A MoPaw stands for many things. It is a Moravian College way of recognizing extraordinary individuals in our community. It is a simple way to say “Thank you” to people who have impacted you in ways both big and small. A MoPaw is a symbol of the values that make our campus so special. 

Really, it’s up to you to determine what your MoPaw means.

How do I give a MoPaw?

MoPaws are available at the HUB Desk, the Colonial Hall Welcome Desk and Human Resources Office, Bahnson Center, and Clewell Dining Hall.  Once you have one, simply deliver it to whomever you choose as a recipient. You may want to write a brief message on your MoPaw to let the recipient know who it’s from -- be creative! Don’t forget to snap a picture of the MoPaw and tag it #MyMoPaw on social media.

What if I receive a MoPaw?

CELEBRATE! It means someone thinks highly of your deeds, actions, and/or character and wants you to be recognized. During your time at Moravian College, you may receive multiple MoPaws. Display them with pride wherever you wish! And don’t forget to upload a picture of your achievement with the #MyMoPaw on social media.
