Moravian College Reviews

lecture hall classroom compared to other universities, the classrooms are much smaller and the professors work with you one on one compared to them just writing on the chalkboard and then everyone else is jotting down notes. There are also many different clubs that you can join as well so that you don't feel excluded and especially if you're a commuter such as myself. I chose Moravian College because I plan on majoring in accounting and I hopefully plan on getting my MBA and CPA license by the time I graduate. Moravian College also relieves the load on your tuition with many scholarships that will make college much more affordable. I'm very excited to start my journey as an accountant and I hoped this helped you make a decision on where you would like to spend the next four years as a college student!

Moravian is the perfect small school for me! All of the professors and staff are passionate about their work and the students. I love having a sports field in the middle of campus, it's a place where everyone (even nonathletes) can hang out.
Moravian College's Nursing Program mainly tries to weed out anyone and you must do well your first semester or you will not make it. The Nursing Program is one of the best in the Lehigh Valley, but you must keep in mind that you need the drive to study constantly and realize that you must maintain certain grades. Moravian claims to be diverse, but there is a very small amount of diversity and mostly consists of stuck up white kids. It really feels like high school with the divide between sports and normal student life. Greek life is somewhat popular, but can be easily avoided. It has a cute campus in the small city of Bethlehem. Its only good for the majors of Nursing, Business, and Humanities. There are only two major frats, so the party life is not that great, but Lehigh is only a short distance away where there are plenty of opportunities to party. The school is very overpriced, as its an old, private liberal arts school, but they can be accommodating with financial aid.
