My freshman year of college was spent very far from home at a university that was not welcoming, nor challenging, to new students, and I hated every second of my time there. I transferred to Moravian my sophomore year and fell in love. No, not with a man, but with the college, with my classes, and with myself.

Being at college can be difficult, and not just because of homework and exams. Staying healthy and living a green lifestyle can be challenging when there are French fries, soda, and delicious mozzarella sticks constantly surrounding you.

With a shiny new Apple MacBook and iPad in the hands of every incoming freshman, the classrooms at Moravian College have become increasingly flooded with technology. Students are taking notes on their computers. Reading journals are kept on laptops, tablets, and cellphones. The incoming classes type fluently and use apps as easily as they breath.

For nearly three weeks this past May, I was fortunate enough to call Europe home. I saw some of the world’s most beautiful and historic sites with a group of fellow Moravian College students through Dr. Lalande’s May Term trip to Venice, Salzburg, Munich, Paris and Berlin.
