My Moravian
April 17, 2018
We’ve all been there—the sharp pain attacking your chest, the inability to take a deep breath, unwanted thoughts zooming in and out and back in again. Anxiety is one of the most common mental illnesses in the United States affecting 40 million adults young and old each year. If you’re not already coping with it from time to time, odds are one day you may fall into that statistic. What can you do when that time comes?

When I sat down to register for Spring 2018 classes a few months ago, I knew that I wanted to take a course in pottery.  However, there was one problem – Moravian only offers Ceramics I (an introductory course to working with clay) and I wasn’t an introductory student.

On Friday and Saturday, Mar. 16-17, Moravian College hosted its 4th Writers’ Conference. The conference was entitled, “Writing about Health: Activism, Advocacy, and Storytelling” which connected to Moravian’s In Focus theme of Healthcare. This was my first Writer’s Conference and it definitely made me more aware of the various ways writing can be used to convey opinions and stories about complex topics, such as healthcare.

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!

Nearly five years ago in the spring of 2013, I visited Moravian College as a junior beginning my college search. My aunt went to Moravian, so naturally I wanted to check it out. I’ve seen how successful she is in her life, so I knew this school would be a good choice. I submitted my early-decision application to Moravian College that fall, received my acceptance, and my college search was over. I was going to be a Class of 2018 Greyhound.

Last week I got a text from my Captain saying she needed me to volunteer to sign autographs for little girls who were coming to Moravian for Women’s Athlete Day. I didn’t necessarily want to give up my Saturday, but as my senior softball season comes to a close and the nostalgia slowly sets in, I decided it wasn’t the worst idea.

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.

This March will mark the one-year anniversary of my decision to turn a passion into a business.  My mother and I taught ourselves how to knit when I was eight years old.  I absolutely loved that I could create something out of just a pile of yarn.  Since then, I have honed my skills and experimented with new stitches and writing my own patterns.  It got to the point where I was making so many things, there were mountains of hats and scarves lying around the house.  I decided it was silly to continue making things without someone to wear them.

Ah, college food: who doesn’t love over-salted, greasy, and pre-cooked questionable meat? Somehow, even the salads that aren’t tasteless seem to be loaded with added fat and sugar, especially if you don’t get dressing on the side. Thankfully, there are still quick and healthy food options you can try—if you’re willing to break in that unused stove top in your dorm’s kitchen.
