Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is no Greek life at Messiah, but students barely notice because there is so much offered to take its place. Intramural sports teams are popular, but floor camaraderie is the main Greek life substitution. Floormates become the first and best friends you make at college—you will throw parties and attend events together. All floors form an identity, and many promote a common theme.

In addition, the lack of Greek life does not mean lack of community service. Messiah students are world-class at giving back. During welcome week, freshmen participate in a class-wide community service day. Service trips to locations across the nation are offered during fall, J-term, and spring breaks and are very popular with students. Every year in April the school shuts down for a campus-wide service day to which all students, faculty, and staff contribute. Special Olympics are held on campus during Service Day, and participants have the option to be a Special Olympics buddy or take part in various other projects.
