Academics

Moravian College in Pennsylvania is a tiny liberal arts school that offers undergraduates fifty majors and minors (including a popular nursing program). It’s a place where faculty and staff “want you to succeed just as much as you do.” Departments and classes are small so “you get to know your professors very well and make connections that you couldn’t elsewhere.” Professors are “absolutely stellar overall” and “have a passion for what they do.” Additionally, they “are always thrilled when you understand the information taught.” They “know exactly what they are talking about” and “articulate it especially well,” incorporating various learning methods to impart their knowledge while bringing “their other jobs or realworld scenarios into the class discussion.” One student shares: “In my Anthropology of Tourism course, our professor took us on field trips to different tourism sites in Bethlehem to analyze and critique the narratives they were selling.” Professors “personally invest in [students’] success” and students “are encouraged to use a variety of modalities for projects and presentations.”

The campus offers additional learning resources. The Student Opportunities for Academic Research (SOAR) program provides stipends and covers many expenses for students involved in research, and the school also offers an option for students to self-design their own major. The “counseling center is amazing at providing quality therapy sessions for students,” and “the staff at the school always put the students first.” On the whole, Moravian is “a very welcoming school that encourages everyone to reach their highest potential and even go beyond that.”

Student Body

Moravian Greyhounds are “very friendly and considerate” and “all of the students … are genuine.” This creates “a close-knit community” where “upperclassmen are always willing to help out and assist incoming freshman, making sure their college experience is the best it can possibly be.” It’s a small but diverse group, with “people from all different backgrounds, ages, and places in their education,” and “people know a majority of [others] on campus.” Some do note that there is a sense of clique separation on campus: “The music and arts students are almost never associated with the athletic and established Greek life members.” But another student adds, “People will take time out of their day to ask how you are and make sure you are okay.”

Campus Life

Students “are very dedicated to their work here, but they like to have fun as well.” By day, “students are mostly in class or studying,” but later on “the college is busier with students getting something to eat, hanging out with friends in the many lounge areas, or playing on the soccer field.” “The activities council has some fun events,” and “weekends are pretty quiet during the day and then at night a lot of people go out.” It’s not all fun and games here, though, as students also care about being engaged academically and take advantage of the many opportunities Moravian provides for students to be involved with decisions that occur on campus: “Not only is there an active and engaged student government, but the students are given the opportunity to sit on [the] college governance board and provide direct feedback.” As for Bethlehem itself? Students admit that it can be “difficult to get things … without a car,” but also are quick to point out that it’s a “very beautiful” place to go to school.
