            Exceeds Expectations

            The Moravian College community embraces students and treats you as a family member. Their roots go back to Comenius, the father of modern education, the supporter of lifelong education, and the creator of diversity in education by offering equal opportunity for impoverished children and the opening of doors through the recognition of the importance of women. I strongly recommend this college and its programs to all who desire to attend. Personally, I have attended Lehigh, Muhlenberg, University of Scranton, Penn State University and Moravian. The small class size and experienced faculty deserve special attention when considering the curriculum that meets your needs. Sit in a class and see if it fits before you make your decision on how a particular program measures up to your expectations!

            Moravian - Preparing for Life through Knowledge

            Moravian for me was not about books. It was about how to open one's mind to knowledge for life. Learning how to learn was my biggest takeaway and it has served me well throughout life. Whenever I needed knowledge the broad liberal arts critical creative thought and reasoning process I was exposed to at Moravian taught me how to know what I needed to know when I needed to know it. It is not what I learned at Moravian that mattered, it was the thinking process behind the learning that never became stale nor out of date and which enabled me to "refresh" my knowledge throughout life. May God bless Prof Stuart Kulp and may perpetual light shine upon him.
