PBS39 also checked in with the Moravian College esports club about its plans. Nick Laird, who oversees the Cyberhounds as an advisor, says changes are underway for the group.
"Typically, all of our new students arrive in one morning, which takes us four hours," said Liz Yates, associate dean of students. "This year, it's going to take about three days."
Moravian College will welcome back about 1,000 residents when students start moving in next week. Students were given the option of single or double rooms, and the school said many have opted to have a dorm-mate.
This decision comes in response to the Landmark Conference announcement that all fall sports will be postponed for 2020. In addition, on July 7 the Centennial Conference announced that fall sports, including Moravian College Football, would be postponed.
Katie P. Desiderio, is an associate professor of management and executive director of Graduate Business Programs at Moravian College in Bethlehem. She is also assistant vice president of the school’s corporate-educational partnerships. Moravian launched its online Master of Science in Predictive Analytics program in January of last year. It was the first online graduate business program offered by the college.
"We will not have any in person classes, nothing face to face after Thanksgiving," Moravian College Provost Cynthia Kosso tells PBS39 News reporter, K.C. Lopez, "So that when undergraduates go home after Thanksgiving, we’re not going to be bringing them back until the spring semester. So that doesn’t mean class necessarily ends at that time. For some, there might be a few more days of course work they need to do or exams after the break. But those will have to be done online."
The Supreme Court’s ruling last week stating the administration improperly ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in 2017 sent ripples across the Lehigh Valley. Advocates for DACA called the move a “win.” 
Damian Almonte never questioned his desire to attend Moravian College. Both his influential music teachers in the Bethlehem Area School District had graduated from there, and he wanted to become teachers like them, at the place they did.
The meetings that Damian Almonte and Amanda Dougherty were called into could’ve been for anything, really. But as it turns out, these weren’t for high school activities or academic discussions. Instead, they changed the two Bethlehem students’ lives, as a four-year-full-tuition scholarship was waiting inside those meetings.
Students who carry three or more course units during the fall or spring term and attain a GPA for the term of 3.50 or higher are placed on the Dean’s Honor List.
