Most students traverse across the street to Colonial Hall only if they need to visit Financial Aid, or Payroll, etc. However, what most don’t know is that just a few feet further directly across from the Seminary is another location that is equally as dedicated to Moravian history (if not more) as the college.

Do you enjoy proving that the future influences the present or playing around with magnetic coils? Do you want to learn how to build a boat with aluminum foil and 4 straws that can hold over 400 pennies? Does roasting a marshmallow with a mirror sound like fun? Then you might want to check out the Society of Physics Students to see if it’s the club for you!

As a senior, I’ve lived in numerous resident halls on campus. Of course, I have my fair share of stories to tell about each one. Some have been great while others...not so much.



Now, as a commuter for the last semester of my senior year, I have experienced life off-campus. Although ultimately I prefer it to living on-campus, there are a great many things I miss about being an on-campus resident. Speaking from my own experiences, I present a list of pros/cons for all living options available for Moravian students.

It’s the week after Thanksgiving break and you’re still trying to pull yourself out of your food-induced coma. That last small shred of motivation is harder to find than Waldo in a Candy Cane factory. The signs are classic: throbbing headaches, puffy, bloodshot eyes, sweatpants every day-would it even be possible to get a caffeine IV drip?

You’re faced with the End-of-the-Semester Slump. Every college student goes through it, especially with the holidays right around the corner and all you want to do is go Christmas shopping and sleep. But alas, classes beckon and your GPA depends on that final paper or project. But luckily for you, here are a few tips on how to beat it!

The SteelStacks is an iconic symbol in the Lehigh Valley and is easily recognized as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region. It is located in Southside Bethlehem by the Lehigh River and is next to PBS Studios, ArtsQuest, and the Sands Casino. Locals and tourists alike gather for festivals like MusikFest and Oktoberfest, movies at Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas, among many other exciting events. However, SteelStacks has a history that only a true Bethlehem local would know and is just one of the many furnaces that used to produce steel for the entire country.

Moravian College is proud to offer over 50 majors, a relatively large number for a small, private liberal arts school. However, there are cases where students can’t find exactly what they’re looking for, but still wish to be a member of the Moravian College community. These students embark on a challenging but ultimately rewarding journey by choosing to design their own major. If you find yourself having doubts about declaring a major in a specific department and maybe have considered a self-designed major, here are all the tips, tricks, and secrets to unveil the mystery of designing your own major! Paige Hawk ‘18 has graciously agreed to be interviewed to help explain the procedure, as well as the positives and negatives to the process.

Moravian College is lucky enough to be able to call itself a dog-friendly campus, and students couldn’t be more pleased. Our mascot is furry, four-legged, friendly, and fun - one with which students are able to interact. Imagine trying to pet a grizzly bear or a bengal tiger! But how did Moravian settle on Amos the Greyhound as our mascot? Who came before the current Mo Grigsby that we all know and love? Let’s race back through history to the early beginnings of the hound pack and find out!

Moravian College is proud to offer a total of 30 departments and nearly 50 majors. For a small, liberal arts private college, that’s pretty impressive! Every student who is fully immersed in their major feels a strong connection and bond to their own department. As an English major, I can say for a fact we are a very close-knit community. We all have our quirks, our differences, disagreements of course, but at the end of the day, we can all share a special kind of friendship knowing we are among others like ourselves. Who else can you text for moral support while procrastinating on your Hands-On Learning Assignment? Who else can you unleash your literary angst upon when your professor assigns “Frankenstein” after you’ve read it three times already? And of course, who else can you vent to but other English majors about the pains of being required to write a sonnet? The students involved in the English Department also know, however, that the professors are some of the most caring, compassionate, and intelligent members of the campus community. So what exactly makes the English Department unique? Well, let us, the English majors, introduce you to our community.
