For freshman the options are Bernie-Willie, Rau-Hassler, Jo Smith (Women), Main (women), Clewell (Men), or the HILL. It is very hard to explain how housing works. Bernie-Willie; doubles, one of the cheaper dorms on campus, about 40 people per floor, co-ed by floor, mainly freshman, hardly anyone besides freshman actually want to live there. BRING A FAN! Rau-Hassler; doubles, smaller version of Bernie-Willie, has room AC/Heating a step up from Bernie-Willie. Jo-Smith; doubles, large rooms, room AC/Heating, can hardly say anything bad about it except it does sometimes get crazy with all women. Main; one of the cheaper dorms, on south campus, lots of stairs to climb, bring a fan especially to the 4th floor, rooms of various sizes and either singles, doubles, or triples. Clewell; has a very close knit group of guys, south campus, bring a fan, singles or doubles rooms. The HILL; on south campus, suit style living, single rooms, has thermostat to control AC/Heat.

Each semester you get 1 housing point and your junior year you get 2 per semester, so you can get a total of 8, then each year you will get a lottery number in the mail, these are numbers from 1 to however many people have the same amount of housing points as you. The lower the number the better. Then when you figure out who you are living with you add up all the housing points together, you then go to select housing during that time period. Whoever has the lowest lottery number with the most points represents your group. It is a very confusing process to explain, and to understand until you go through it.

Moravian has been amazing. As a current sophomore, my love for this school hasn't descreased. For such a small school, there's a sense of community that you just can't get at a big school. The faculty is qualified and incredible. There is always something to do around here, either at school, through school, or downtown. It's wonderful having such a historically rich school, as well. Over 270 academic years, founded by a women, and plenty more things to be proud of. It's always a good day to be a hound!

Moravian's culture and community are unlike any other school I've visited during the college admissions process. The undergraduate enrollment is under 2,000 students and that is my favorite characteristic of my school. You know someone every where you go on campus, you can get involved in any of the various clubs we offer, sports teams are inclusive and competitive, the Greek Life option exists yet doesn't pressure any student involvement. In addition to the extracurricular would being full of opportunities, the classroom size is an exceptional learning environment. Professors know you personally, are available for help whenever you need it, are willing to make appointments with you to fit your schedule, and there are many programs to offer additional academic assistance if necessary. The resources available to students as career finders, employment opportunities, and alumni connections are highly effective.
