it’s all about the

passion. Lots of things might make you happy. Maybe it’s your favorite subject. Music. Soccer. Volunteering. Photography. Or maybe you haven’t found your passion yet. (Totally normal.) The key is in the pursuit. The discovery. The trying of new things. In fact, research shows that we get more pleasure from making progress toward our goals than from achieving them. What really makes people happy? It’s not “stuff.” It’s learning. Sharing and collaborating. Helping others. If you’re ready to begin your pursuit of happiness, Moravian is a great place to start.

meet moravian History

Moravian is the sixth-oldest college in the nation, founded in 1742. MC was also the first coed college in the Lehigh Valley. From its earliest days, the College has been committed to the philosophy of Moravian Bishop John Amos Comenius (1592-1670) who believed that “not the children of the rich or of the powerful only, but of all alike, boys and girls, both noble and ignoble, rich and poor, in all cities and towns, villages and hamlets, should be sent to school.”

Student Life

More than 80 clubs and organizations to keep you busy in everything from performing arts, service, and athletics to environmental interests, faith, and politics to academic interests to Greek life. (And, if you don’t see a club for your interest, you can always start one!)

Athletics

Location

The Greyhounds compete in NCAA Division III and field teams in 16 sports: (men’s) baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, soccer, tennis, and track and field; (women’s) basketball, cross country, field hockey, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field, and volleyball. About one-third of students play varsity sports. Twothirds are involved in intramurals or club sports.

Campus

All students live on campus throughout their time at Moravian, and housing is guaranteed for all four years. There are a variety of options, including traditional residence halls, suites, apartments, townhouses, and fraternity and sorority housing.

Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, is our home. Named by Money magazine as one of the country’s “Best Places to Live,” the historic city boasts a thriving music and arts scene, and plenty of student-friendly restaurants and shops. Bethlehem is just an hour’s drive from Philadelphia and 90 minutes from New York City.

We have two! North campus features include academic buildings, residences, the HUB student center, athletic facilities, and the library. South campus is home to the HILL living and learning community, art and music studios, and more. They’re connected by the “Moravian Mile,” an easy eight blocks through the historic district (campus buses make getting back and forth even easier).

About 1,600 students from 24 states and 14 countries are happily pursuing their passions at Moravian.

Make your brain happy. When you learn or experience something new, your brain gets a boost of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that controls the brain’s reward and pleasure centers. In other words, your brain does a little happy dance.

1742 was a big year: the first indoor swimming pool opened in London; Handel’s Messiah was performed for the first time; Anders Celsius invented the original centigrade scale.

Moravian offers more than 50 major paths to intellectual happiness. (And that’s before you double major, minor, conduct research, intern, study abroad, and otherwise move your mind!)

There’s a lot of history at Moravian. (That tends to happen when you’re the sixth-oldest college in the United States.) We also have a legacy of being forward-thinking when it comes to education.

Historically ahead of the times.

The philosophy of John Amos Comenius, a 17th-century Moravian bishop and the father of modern education, shaped the Moravian educational experience from the start. He was a firm believer that everyone needed to be educated: women, slaves, the poor—not just privileged males as was common at the time.

One of his most well-known principles stresses the importance of joy in learning. He wrote, “To whom is it not a pleasure to go to some new place daily, to converse with someone, to narrate something, or to have some fresh experience?” Can a historical figure be ahead of his time? Long before the Founding Fathers and the Declaration of Independence, Comenius was talking about the pursuit of happiness.

Pursue an Add-Venture. Moravian’s Add-Venture is designed for students who want to pursue an academic program that combines typically unrelated areas. One example: physics and music. Students admitted to Add-Venture work closely with faculty mentors who help guide their studies.

Speak Greek? Nearly 20 percent of students participate in Greek Life as members of Moravian’s sororities and fraternities. They’re involved in everything from community service to Greek Week activities to social events, all while earning some of the highest GPAs on campus.

Have a passion for connecting?

Join the club. (Or team. Or band.) At Moravian, you’ll know just about everyone—students, faculty, staff. It’s a close, friendly community. And it’s easy to connect and be involved on campus; there are more than 80 student clubs and activities to help you pursue your passion outside of the classroom. Nothing makes Moravian students happier than getting together with a bunch of friends to plan an event, take the stage with the choir, volunteer in the community, or even hop on the bus for an MC-sponsored road trip to New York. Is there anything better than doing what you love with friends who share your passions?

Maybe it’s just us, but we couldn’t be happier to call Bethlehem home. It’s filled with historic, pre-colonial buildings (some right on campus), fun shops, restaurants, and festivals and cultural events (including the famous Musikfest). And if your pursuits expand beyond the city limits, we’re just an hour from Philadelphia and the Poconos, 90 minutes from New York City, and three hours from Washington, DC.
