| Moravian College was a big part of the reason I got my job as a high school teacher. The principal was extremely impressed when he saw that I graduated from Moravian. I graduated in 2009 when teaching jobs were very scarce, so I was very thankful that the Moravian name got me the "in" I needed. I don't know how well prepared other alumni feel, but I have always felt like I knew exactly what to do once I started teaching, and I have MC to thank for that. I didn't make many friends during my time there (I was a commuter), but, then again, I was only really interested in an education, not a booze fueled social life. I did feel, however, that many of the other students were stuck-up and stand-offish, but there were some who were extremely friendly and intelligent. The faculty was brilliant, particularly the English/Education professors, and they always had time to talk to me about anything I needed. Overall, it wasn't a socially saturated experience, but I am thankful for everything I got out of attending Moravian College. |

| Moravian is great for preparing you for success. Although Moravian is beautiful, friendly, and in a nice area, I mostly came for the excellence of the faculty. They are all overly qualified and extremely genial. They are always looking to help you succeed in any endeavor. I do not know one professor that would not go out of their way to help a student land their dream internship/job/position etc. |
Pros: 1. Teachers are EXCELLENT. If nothing else, they are a reason to consider Moravian. 2. Beautiful historic campus. You feel at peace here. 3. Opporunities. There are many jobs/clubs on campus and tons of research opportunities. Moravian also offers ample opportunities to make connections with hospitals (premed), schools (education), companies (business) etc. They do anything in their power to see you succeed. 4. Food. I personally love the food. Not everyone agrees. 5. The people. You have to spend 4 years here - so you should pick a friendly, kind, and funny group of individuals.
Cons: 1. Costly 2. Not much diversity, though people tend to be very accepting of everyone. 3. Small. This is great for some people but hard for others. However, there are a bunch of other schools in the Lehigh Valley (some walking distance) where you can socialize if you feel you need to meet more people.
