Moravian Bound
March 1, 2017
It's no secret that Moravian College has been a part of the Bethlehem community for some time now - 275 years to be exact. That's a long time when you think about what has Moravian done in that time to excite us so much about its anniversary? Well, it’s not often that you hear a story beginning with an echo of this kind of chatter… 275 years ago, in 1742, a sixteen-year-old girl with a passion for education garnered support from her local community to advocate the founding of a school, which would eventually become the 6th oldest college in the United States.

Making the decision on where you want to go to school can seem like an arduous task. Rightfully so, it isn’t easy - and you shouldn’t make it overnight. Thankfully I had 3 siblings precede me and I learned a lot from their college decisions. For those students that haven’t learned from their siblings’ college success or disasters, I want to offer you a practical blueprint that should help to point you in the right direction for choosing a college.

New Year, new you!  Isn't that what you've been hearing everyone say or post all over Instagram?  Well here in the Moravian College admission office, we decided to take some time to reflect on our own lives outside of work.  It's not a secret that our team of 6 admissions counselors spend most of our week together - we are like one big happy, usually stressed, family, but we also take some time to enjoy life outside of Moravian College..

2017 has inspired us all to make the most of our free time – here’s how:

Growing up in Bethlehem, I didn’t always appreciate the Christmas City for what is was. As I got older and began to explore downtown, I fell in love more and more. The first time my parents took me on a horse-drawn carriage ride through Historic Main Street, I was hooked! All of the store fronts were lit up, everyone was hustling and bustling, and Christmas music was coming from the trees! It was honestly like a scene out of a movie! Now, my family has made it a tradition that every year, we take a carriage ride through downtown and enjoy the beautiful Christmas City.

As a college admission counselor, you have to be flexible because your schedule can change literally at the drop of a hat!  For those of you who don’t know what the Admission team does from September to November, let me tell you. We TRAVEL! And I'm not talking a fifteen minute drive down the road; we put in 12 hour days and set up camp in hotels for weeks on end, meeting prospective greyhounds from all around the Northeast and the country!

Starting your college experience can be daunting: you're surrounded by new faces, new opportunities, and new classes with demanding professors and assignments.  Whether you're the proactive planner or the perennial procrastinator, there are going to be times when you're ready for a break and need to decompress.  Luckily for Moravian College students, Bethlehem is just steps away and there’s so much to do!
