Life of a Hound: Hi, my name is Ashley Rohrer!
Imagine yourself in Senior year of college, asking where life will take you after you graduate. Where will you live? How soon will you get a job? If you are currently a senior don’t you worry, we’ve all been asking ourselves the same questions.
Hi, my name is Ashley Rohrer, and I’m currently a senior here at Moravian College, with Marketing Communications degree. Here at Moravian I participate in cross country, track, and FCA which stands for Fellowship of Christian Athletes. It’s scary to think of how the real world is just an arms length away. I am feeling prepared, thanks to my current internship with the Office of Marketing and Communications at Moravian College. I’ll be writing blog posts for Moravian’s website. The idea is to provide you “(the future Greyhound!)” with weekly blogs throughout my senior year, so you can get a college student's perspective “on life at Moravian.”
A little bit about my life outside of Moravian College- I’m from a small town outside of Harrisburg called Etters, PA. I enjoy fishing, running, hiking, spending time with friends and family, and spoiling my German Shepherd, Blu. A dream of mine since seventh grade was to run cross country and track for a college. Thanks to Jesse Baumann, Moravian’s cross country and track coach, I made this dream a reality. After Coach Baumann reached out to me, I came to campus for a visit, and ended up falling in love with Moravian College shortly after. There are many reasons why I love Moravian—its beautiful campus, small class sizes, closeness to home, dog-friendly campus, and Division III sports. And let’s not forget about all of our friendly staff around campus! I would absolutely consider Moravian a home away from home.
My advice for current first year students is to get involved as soon as you step onto campus, because you only get this opportunity once. In just a few short years, you’ll be starting your last two semesters of college, just like me. And you’ll find yourself asking the same question—what’s next? There are so many activities, clubs, and sports on campus, so go out there and get involved.
Pro Tip: A popular event is Wingo—Bingo with wings! Freshman love this because it’s a great way to meet new friends, socialize, and win prizes. Other events held here on campus include Heritage Day, Halloween trips, Target trips, movie night, and Christmas Vespers. There is so much that Moravian offers so don't miss out!
