Moravian College is a private liberal arts college located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, United States, in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania. The College traces its roots to the Bethlehem Female Seminary, which was founded in Germantown, Pennsylvania by Benigna, Countess von Zinzendorf in 1742 and is the oldest institution of higher education for women in the United States (the Countess was the daughter of Count Nikolaus Ludwig Zinzendorf, who was the benefactor of the fledgling Moravian communities in Nazareth and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania). The Female Seminary began to grant baccalaureate degrees in 1863 and became the woman's college, the Moravian Seminary and College for Women in 1913. The College also traces its roots to the founding of two boy's schools, established in 1742 and 1743, which merged to become Nazareth Hall in 1759. Nazareth Hall became, in part, Moravian College and Theological Seminary in 1807 and began to grant degrees in 1863. In 1954 the two schools combined to form the single, coeducational, modern institution of Moravian College & Theological Seminary.

Moravian campus

The college's programs are offered on two campuses, known as either North Campus (Main Campus) or South Campus (Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus).


South Campus

Art and music programs are offered in Bethlehem's historic district on the college's South Campus, also known as the Church Street Campus and now the Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus. Many of the buildings on that campus were built during the colonial period, including the Brethren's House, built in 1748, which served as a hospital during the Revolutionary War, and currently houses the Music Department. Also located on South Campus are the President's House, Main Hall (1854), the Widow's House, Clewell Hall, West Hall, South Hall, the 1867 Chapel, Clewell Dining Hall, and the Central Moravian Church. A number of the buildings are connected. The facilities have been renovated to include Payne Gallery (renovated from the original women's gymnasium - 1903), the College's two-level art gallery that offers several shows each year, Foy Concert Hall, an auditorium with excellent acoustics, Peter Hall, a medium-sized colonial style recital hall, Hearst Hall, a small colonial style recital hall, and individual student rehearsal rooms and art studios. Also located on South Campus are intramural fields, the monocacy creek, and an outdoor ampitheatre. The College presents its famed and televised Christmas Vespers services in the Central Moravian Church, located on the corner of Main and Church streets across from Brethren's House. Many of the buildings on the South Campus are located in a National Register of Historic Places District and Church Street has been referred to as one of the most historic streets in America. The American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), also known as the American War of Independence, was a war fought primarily between Great Britain and revolutionaries within thirteen of her North American colonies. ...

South Campus was the location of the female Moravian Seminary & College for Women until 1954, at which time it merged with the mens' Moravian College & Theological Seminary located at North Campus.


North Campus

All other programs are offered on a campus whose oldest academic building, Comenius Hall, was built in 1892, as the College at Nazareth Hall moved from Nazareth to the Bethlehem campus at that time. Comenius Hall is named for John Amos Comenius, a Moravian Bishop known as the "father of modern education" for his revolutionary educational principles. Comenius wrote in 1632 that "not the children of the rich or of the powerful only, but of all alike, boys and girls, both noble and ignoble, rich and poor, in all cities and towns, villages and hamlets, should be sent to school". The Moravians had considered schools secondary in importance only to churches. A statue of Comenius, which was a gift to the College from Charles University of Prague and the Moravian Church of Czechoslovakia, stands in front of Comenius Hall. The North Campus, known as the Main Street Campus, also houses Reeves Library, Priscilla Payne Hurd Academic Complex, Colonial Hall, The Bahnson Center, the Moravian Archives, Zinzendorf Hall, Borhek Chapel, Prosser Auditorium (capacity 300), Monacacy Hall, Collier Hall of Science, Hamilton Hall, Memorial Hall, Johnston Hall (capacity 1,600 for athletics, 3,000 for events), the Timothy M. Breidagam Athletic and Recreation Center, the Collier Hall of Science, the Haupert Union Building, the Arena Theatre, and most of the College's student housing, including dorms, townhouses, and apartments. very old building at moravian college in bethlehem, pa ...

Located at one of the two quads of the North Campus is the soccer and lacrosse field. Intercollegiate contests are played at the center of campus with views from the residential halls, Reeves Library, and the portico of the Haupert Union Building. Also located on the North Campus is the Betty Prince field hockey field.


The distance between the North and South campuses is about 0.8 miles of Main Street, called the "Moravian Mile." First year students traditionally walk the "Moravian Mile" as part of their orientation activities.


Steel Field Complex

Most of the College's athletic fields are located at this Complex, including the newly renovated football stadium with a grandstand capacity of 2,400 and a new Sportexe turf field, the newly surfaced ten lane Mondo Super X Performance synthetic track, the softball field, the Gillespie baseball field, the Hoffman tennis courts, the football practice fields, and a fieldhouse.


Steel Field and its brick grandstand were originally built by Bethlehem Steel to host the Bethlehem Steel Soccer Club, 1913-1930, which was arguably the most winning soccer team in US history. Beginning as an industrial amateur league club and later becoming a professional club and a founding member of the American Soccer League, Bethlehem Steel dominated the American soccer scene for many years. Like most clubs since, Bethlehem Steel relied on imported talent. In the 'teens and 'twenties, Scotland and England were the main hunting grounds for US soccer scouts. The Club won the American Cup in 1914, 1916, 1917, 1918, 1919 and 1924. The American Cup competition was instituted in 1885 and the cup was last awarded in 1929. The National Cup was won by the Bethlehem Steel Soccer Club in 1915, 1916, 1918, 1919, and 1926. The tournament is now called the U.S. Open Cup. The silver trophy given to winners of the tournament is named after British sportsman Sir Thomas Dewar who donated the trophy in 1914 to promote soccer in the United States. The winners of this cup in the past few years are the Chicago Fire, Los Angeles Galaxy and DC United. Bethlehem Steel donated the Steel Field Athletic Complex to Moravian College.
