The Community and Me
From the very first act of service done by Moravian as a community, to our professor allowing us to explore the environment and choose a service event of our own, I was able to grow. That feeling of arriving somewhere new and not yet fitting in right away kept pondering in me. I was nervous and more into myself especially as a commuter. Even after attending the student affaires sessions, I still felt a bit detached at first, but then I found them to be helpful. I personally had no problem that was too extravagant, but the sessions were helpful because of the new information I was able to learn about Moravian and the opportunities that were available such as study abroad, counseling, and internships. As time passed I began exploring around campus with friends and getting to know the place where I plan to spend 4 years of my academic life and before you knew it, I had bloomed. I fell in love with the faculty, the people, and the community. The events that were held and the opportunities to view not only what was up at north campus but the music and art side of Moravian as well. I also decided to go to some events on campus such as when the rescue puppies arrived, the "spa day" event at the hub, and the pizza party event. Later in the spring I also plan to maybe help teach the younger kids at William Penn.
Coming in to Moravian I was set at becoming a nurse and I still have not lost hope. I just need to take another journey that may be different from others, but I hope to come out stronger. I have decided to continue my 4 years at Moravian with a public health major and accounting minor. Then I plan on taking an accelerated BSN program at which I will have achieved my goal. Thanks to some counseling with Dr. Terrizzi, I was able to meet with the head of the Public Health department and get to know more about the major and my options. I decided to take a chance and so far I feel confident with my decision and can only hope for the best in my future.
