      Moravian College is a welcoming, private, liberal arts institution located in the heart of the Lehigh Valley in
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Founded in 1742, it is recognized as the sixth-oldest college in the country. Enrollment
is approximately 1,600 undergraduates each year, which maintains a favorable faculty to student ratio, small class
size, and emphasis on personalized teaching.
      Moravian believes its mission is to integrate a liberal arts education with preparation for life, enriching students
in and out of the classroom. Moravian aims to give its students a foundation for careers or graduate/professional
school, for continued lifelong learning, and for a values-oriented approach to society.
      With over 50 different programs of study and more than 70 clubs and organizations, Moravian offers flexibility
and diversity among all academic and extracurricular areas. The College grants the Bachelor of Art, Bachelor of
Music, and Bachelor of Science degrees.
      On the athletic fields, Moravian’s 18 men’s and women’s varsity teams have a winning tradition. During
the 2010-11 school year, Moravian won six Landmark Conference championships with ten teams reaching post-
season play including NCAA Championship berths for the women’s tennis and and softball teams. In addition, ten
student-athletes earned All-America status with five national champions in track & field.
      Approximately one-quarter of Moravian’s student body participates in intercollegiate athletics every year, and
many more compete in club sports and intramurals. Moravian’s student-athletes excel academically. The College
has had 35 Capital One Academic All-Americans including one in 2010-11, while more than 70 student-athletes
earn spots on the conference All-Academic Honor Rolls yearly.
      A Division III institution, Moravian has excellent athletics facilities including the venerable Johnston Hall,
Breidegam Fieldhouse, and the Moravian College Steel Athletics complex with Sportexe Turf on Rocco Calvo
Field and an eight-lane, Olympic-quality Mondo track, both installed in 2005. Moravian is undergoing construc-
tion to complete a multimillion dollar project that will include a state of the art fitness center extending from the
Breidegam Fieldhouse. The project is expected to be completed by January 2012.
      The College has a strong sense of identity and purpose firmly rooted in a long and rich tradition. Both in and
out of the classroom, Moravian and its students maintain that tradition.
