I was introduced to Moravian by a faculty member from my high school that is an alumn, and was so excited to attend after all of the great things she said. I loved my highschool, which had about 2,000 kids, and thought I would feel the same way about Moravian and would benefit from it's education program. I promise I'm not a freak that stays in my room all weekend and likes to attend the "stitch and bitch" knitting club. Although it's a D3 school that loses every game, sports are the only thing these kids understand. The school doesn't have much school spirit, which probably sounds like it contradicts my last sentence, but sports become a priority with friends/weekends. It's a suitcase school, so the only kids that stay on the weekends are those who are on a sports team, which makes it difficult for other students like me to have fun. People seem friendly the first week or two of school, but since everyone is on a sports team, no one is willing to make other friends. The parties were fun at first, but after the excitement of college wears off, it's the same thing in a small, sweaty living room of an on-campus house. The other day there was a heavier girl who tripped over a tree stump. She remained on the ground, and my friend and I watched about a dozen people walk by without saying anything or asking if she was okay. Luckily, the tree was okay and the girl as well, but this incident is the epitome of the student body atmosphere: everyone minds their own business. The kids I know that love it are all on a sports team. I know a handful of kids that couldn't stay another semester and more are planning to transfer after this spring semester ends (including myself). The academics are hardly challenging - my high school may have been harder - and the fact is that if you're not challenged, aren't on a sports team and therefore can't get involved because the school doesn't offer a lot, then you spend your time and money doing nothing. The only thing I ever found interesting at a party was a 300-lb lesbian giving a "lap dance." If this turns you on, go here. I'm transferring. See ya
