As I prepared to head off to Boston College to study management and finance, I was hoping to build my network in Boston by connecting with people already in the city who shared my interests and experiences. Tracy Bozik, Moravian Academy Director of Alumni Relations, suggested I try Moravian Connect, which connected me to Rachel Loetzbeier ‘12, a fellow Moravian Academy alumna who is living in the Boston area.
Rachel generously offered to have a phone conversation with me. During our call, she shared how graduating from Moravian made her feel extremely prepared for college. We covered everything from fun things to do in the city to how to navigate the public transportation system to how to get involved in the local community. The best piece of advice Rachel offered me was to research every opportunity that presents itself, as that was how she ended up in a career she loves in a city she loves.
Rachel also connected me with Ryan Manhoff ‘12 from her graduating class, who attended Boston University. Ryan was able to offer me helpful tips about college life in the city, as well as great advice about pursuing a career that you are truly passionate about.
Being able to connect with and learn from Rachel and Ryan was an invaluable experience that will make my transition to Boston College easier, something that I wouldn’t have been able to do without Moravian Connect. I am very glad I took advantage of the opportunity and I look forward to connecting with more alumni and learning what they have to say about their journeys after Moravian Academy.
