My Moravian

Bethlehem, PA is called “The Christmas City” for a reason that is plain and simple: we LOVE our holidays! Walking up Main Street feels like walking through a Christmas wonderland with lights, wreaths, and Christmas trees scattered throughout. Bethlehem hosts a variety of Christmas events and festivals that are open to the public. Moravian College even offers some holiday events of their own to get students into the holiday spirit. To get the full Christmas City experience, I have a few events listed below to check out at Bethlehem during the Christmas Season.

I’m sure everyone has been there, it’s the end of October and all of your friends have come up with the brilliant idea to have a ‘friends-giving.’ You each decide to bring a dish and have a family-style meal together sometime before you each go home for Thanksgiving break. Now, most of us that have come up with the idea have also faced the harsh reality of it never happening. If you are usually in this situation, this article is for you!

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.

Heritage Day: what a wonderful day on our campus! Everyone comes together to volunteer at different organizations. When I got to Johnston’s Hall last Wednesday morning I was given a card with my volunteering location: Northeast Middle School.

It’s the most terrible time of the year. While you’re ready to sing Christmas carols and deck the halls, there’s one thing still standing in your path to freedom: finals. They loom in the near distance, threatening to melt your brain and destroy any bit of hope your heart may still hold. You can see the damage that studying for finals has caused as you watch students walk across campus in dirty sweatpants, not having showered for the third day in a row, and very much resembling a zombie. Before you also turn into a mindless machine, try out some of these tips for soothing your soul and increasing your brainpower so you can get in some serious study sessions.

Ahh the life of a commuter. Whether we are still living at home (me) or are driving to campus from our own apartments or houses, the one thing that connects us all is the trip we have to make every morning to Moravian. After four years I think I have learned a thing or two, and I am here to share my wisdom from the countless hours I’ve spent behind the wheel. Don’t worry, they are not all as painfully obvious as the title.

After writing about primarily food and books for the past few months I thought it would be a nice change of pace to talk about something on campus that is a little more serious. Omicron Delta Kappa (OΔK) is the Leadership Honors Society at Moravian and a club that I am proud to represent as president.

Like most high school seniors, I had really no clue what I wanted to do after graduating. Yes, I wanted to go to school, but did I want to go to school because everyone else was and I have been told since day one that college is what gets you a successful life? As if high school wasn’t stressful enough for me, which was filled with 3 sports, AP and honor classes, having a job, and trying to manage a social life.  To make things worse, there were so many options to narrow down when choosing a college.

Luckily, I had an awesome high school guidance counselor who knew how to help deal with my anxiety. Knowing that I was looking for a small school not far from home, he encouraged me to attend an info session about Moravian College, and the Admissions counselor talked up Moravian so much that I decided I would apply.

In April of 2104, I made the 2-hour drive with my mom to visit Moravian College. It was small, cozy, and not in the middle of nowhere! I sat in Dr. Salter’s class, and I felt like this was my place.  During our Open House visit, my mom saw me eyeing the Army ROTC table but not making the move so she dragged me over to talk to them. My senior year of high school, I was also talking to military recruiters because I had no clue how I would pay for school, since at the time I wanted to be a doctor. Plus, there was always something about the military that grabbed my attention.

Breakfast in a Pinch…actually in a bowl then a pan but you get the idea...

Moving off to college and being away from home for the first time is one of the greatest shifts to adulthood in our young lives. Cooking your own meals is another one of those shifts, and it is a heck of a lot easier than figuring out how to fit your entire Blu-Ray underneath your lofted bed. With that in mind here is a recipe that takes minimal ingredients, utensils, and effort:
