At our October 26 meeting, we had the pleasure of hearing from Dr. Bryon Grigsby, President of Moravian College. Dr. Grigsby provided a very enlightening presentation of “What’s Happening at Moravian College!”
 
Of course, you need to take a look back at the first 275 years of the College’s history to gain perspective on how it has and continues to evolve.
Did you know Moravian started out as a girls school in the 1740’s?
 
Now Moravian College has evolved into a liberal arts education in conjunction with various professional healthcare programs.
 
Two recent additions include a Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center in collaboration with St. Luke’s University Health Network and The Sally Breidegam Miksiewicz Center for Health Sciences. These are leading edge state of the art facilities focused on bringing liberal arts and science together to serve the future needs of educators, scientists and entrepreneurs.
 
As Dr. Grigsby stated, “as we enter our next 275 years, we will continue to help our students to prepare for their chosen careers but also prepare them for the 3 or 4 other careers they will pursue in their lifetimes.”
Thank you Charlotte!
