Messiah College is committed to academics, student development, and post-graduate achievement. If I could go back to my years prior to college and choose a different university, I would still choose Messiah College.

I have only been attending Messiah College for a little over a month, and already, I absolutely love it! I am so excited to spend the next four years on this campus! The strong sense of community is so comforting and I know the relationships I have already made will last a lifetime! All of the faculty that I have come in contact with genuinely care and are taking the time to invest in my education and my spiritual journey! I am so thankful to be a student at Messiah!

Haha I'm not sure who the people are that are saying "there is always something to do around campus" because there is literally nothing to do. Every once in a while there will be a lame school dance or band no one's ever heard of come play in the Union. And other than that, there are a few random activities throughout the semester like 5ks and coffee houses (which is like a talent show). And all of it is pretty lame. If I could do it over again I would have never even applied to Messiah. A lot of other people surprisingly feel the same way I do. Kids are cliquey, people are openly judgmental, and for the most part I've grown farther from God as have a lot of other people from being at this school.
