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.

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 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!

Internships allow people to gain firsthand experience in a real-life business setting. Every college student knows this and must complete an internship during their college career. Not only will their work benefit the company, business, or organization they’re working for, but it will also benefit the student by providing life experiences working for a business, communication skills, and client, employer, and employee relationships. Internships also increase student networking, which is crucial in setting up potential future employment opportunities. However, beginning the internship process can be daunting. Luckily, there are plenty of ways colleges can help students obtain an internship and keep it stress and worry free! Here are some tips and suggestions for Moravian students to get ahead of the game.

So you don’t believe in ghosts? Living at Moravian College will surely change your mind by the time you graduate! Being the sixth oldest college in America, Moravian is sure to have its fair share of secrets. Before Moravian existed as the liberal arts college we all know and love today, it went through its period of transitions. For example, the Brethren’s House, was converted into a hospital for American soldiers during the Revolutionary War and is rumored to have its resident ghosts. Today, it serves as the music and art building for students, which is where may of the hauntings are said to take place. Another supposedly haunted building located on Moravian’s Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus is Main Hall, which is the all-female dormitory. It originally opened in 1854 as a residence hall for single women, and is said to contain three infamous ghosts: those of a Revolutionary War nurse, a little girl, and a cat. Given the age of some of the buildings along with their history, is it any surprise that hauntings are rumored to have happened here? Listen to some of the stories students have to tell about first-hand encounters with the paranormal or supernatural experiences they’ve had and decide for yourself!
