InCommon has some news of its own to share with you! Moravian College's e-newsletter—and corresponding website —will undergo a makeover in time for the start of the fall 2013 semester.

In an effort to provide you with more timely news, stories and information on the College and Seminary, the Public Relations Office is overhauling InCommon, to make it more informational, user friendly, eye-catching—and frequent.

“What readers will notice first is the e-newsletter has been rebranded and renamed Inside Moravian,” said Michael Wilson, director of public relations and marketing. “We plan to use it to give the campus community, alumni, students and their parents, and others an inside look into life at Moravian. The e-newsletter will be issued each Monday during the academic year to showcase our achievements, provide updates and promote events for the coming week.”

Inside Moravian will be redesigned with a greater emphasis on quality photography and concise stories and news bits. It will feature a large photo of the week or "Snapshot” depicting interesting activity on campus. Readers are welcome to submit images for consideration to, with the subject line "Inside Moravian Snapshot."  “Our focus is making Inside Moravian appealing to all our audiences,” Wilson noted. “With so much information competing for attention, we want to provide a value that will motivate students to open the email and use the information.”

Inside Moravian will continue to offer its readers up-to-date information about campus and its community members, while also incorporating a few new features, most notably a section specifically highlighting our exceptional students in the classroom, as well as outstanding student organizations. Faculty members are welcome to submit recommendations.

Alumni achievements and upcoming alumni events will also be highlighted on a weekly basis. This will be a great place to find out about events like Homecoming, networking opportunities and class gatherings.

Our robust News and Notes section will also return, delving into the many accomplishments of our faculty members, staff and students, whether its presenting a lecture, attending a conference, publishing an article or book, and receiving an award.

As always, we welcome news submissions from students, faculty and staff regarding Moravian events and achievements. Please submit your news items to Tommy Kopetskie, Inside Moravian's new editor, at
