My Moravian
October 23, 2018
It is announced during halftime at every home football game, “And now, please welcome...the pride of the Keystone State...The Moravian College Marching Band!” The Moravian Marching Band practices for hours every week and performs at football games and parades. I have been a part of the Color Guard for my marching band in high school and as a member of the Moravian College Color Guard, I have had nothing but the best time performing with this incredible band! I have enjoyed working with Dr. Hess, the band director for the Marching Band, and Ciara Hurley and Miles Molerio, the Color Guard instructors. To showcase the hard work that is put into the marching band, I thought I would share my experience practicing our “Classic Rock” marching show for one week before our big performance at the Collegiate Marching Band Festival!

Since you are a new face at Moravian, I figured it might be nice to detail some of my favorite annual events that happen on or near campus. I wholeheartedly suggest you attend these events at least once before graduating, as being a part of our community is what makes our community, well, ours. That being said, I guess this message is not only to freshman but also to seniors: while you still have the chance, do it.

Every internship opportunity presents challenges, but I never expected that as an English major I would find myself working at Precision Roll Grinders, a company that specializes in servicing 500-ton industrial rolls. Over the summer, I worked alongside mechanical engineers in a factory, not performing manual labor and grinding the rolls that are used to create everything from paper towels to the cereal we eat but learning about the process, interviewing workers and writing about the 50-year anniversary of the company.

Never in a million years would I have imagined that I would get to call Italy my home, let alone two incredible cities like Rome and Florence. It was humbling to live in such spectacular, historical places and have them become a part of me. Living abroad has this ability to make you feel so small yet somehow quite equally as spectacular as where you are. It makes you feel like you can truly do anything, and that is a gift that can’t be explained.

The semester is kicking off with a bang, and that bang comes with busy schedules, coursework creeping up to your eyeballs, and some new social circles. With all of these events popping up on campus, you're realizing that you can't be at everything because let's face it, you're not a superhuman. But, you can pick and choose and that's how I can help: If you're trying to find some 5-star events on campus this semester, look no further than this!

Studying in Germany has always been a dream of mine ever since my success and interest in the past with High School courses, that being said I was eager to go abroad to achieve my dreams. After two years and one semester of courses at Moravian it was finally time to research and choose a program that fit me and my and my Academics as a whole. I decided to study at Erfurt University which is one of our sister schools here at Moravian.

What appealed to me about this program was the small size of the school as well as Erfurt’s central location in the heart of Germany. At the end of my last fall semester it was finally time to fly away from the land that I called my home to a new a country. I had no idea what I was getting into and at the same time I was ready to explore! No matter what I promised myself to use my second language as much as possible and to meet as many new faces as I could.

I have only been home for two days now and I already miss Japan. I think the biggest thing I took out of this course itself was all the discussions our group had about the atomic bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Until going on this trip, I had never really thought about how many atomic bombs there are in the world and how I felt about it.

During our trip to Japan, there were a lot of captivating and interesting moments that I experienced, but one of the most memorable had to be when I went to the Hiroshima Peace Park Museum. This had been the first museum our group had visited and I was curious about how Japan might interpret the bombing of Hiroshima and if it would be relatively similar to the setup of American museums.

There is no place in the world I would rather travel than Japan. Japan has had a major effect on my childhood, whether that be electronics and goods from Japan or my favorite food, sushi. When I saw the opportunity to take a course in Japan, I wanted to go as soon as possible. However, one major event I was looking forward to was meeting Japanese students from Ohtani University and hearing their opinions on important topics such as peace.
