My Moravian
October 27, 2016
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!

Moravian College students are always in the know about College events and activities on campus: there are so many colorful flyers and bright banners-how could we not be? While many events occur on North Campus, MoCo’s secondary campus, the Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus a mile South of Comenius Hall, has its own special charm and attractions not to be overlooked! Here are five good reasons why South Campus, too, rocks!

We know it as Foy Hall.  Most students will be familiar with this concert hall, having attended a lecture here or even participated in a performance ourselves.  However, like many of the other buildings on campus, we might not know a lot about the individual behind the name. We're putting Mr. Lewis Foy—a man who has invested in each of our educations without our knowledge—in the spotlight today.
