Greyhounds Around the Globe

Greyhounds around the Globe

Curiosity, exploration, adventure, personal enrichment—they exist in our cultural DNA. In the 1700s, Moravians migrated from their community of Hernhut in Saxony to other regions of Europe and to Africa, the Caribbean, and the American colonies, where they founded Bethlehem. Today Moravian College alumni venture from Bethlehem to Europe, Asia, Central America, and other parts of the world to work and live and immerse themselves in cultures different from their own.

Here, eight alumni tell of their journeys to homes away from home, their embrace of new cultures, and how their experience shapes their world view and—even if only incrementally—increases global understanding.
