Messiah college is an awesome college to receive a christian education from where professors care personally about each individual student. Academics were important to me when looking for a school to attend and now after being at Messiah I am definitely pleased with the teachers here and the rigorous academic courses. When first considering Messiah I was concerned that it might be too small for me but I have found that Messiah is the perfect size. I am constantly meeting new people and don't feel closed in here. I love the teachers and the students here more than I could have ever imagined. The teachers pray before classes and take a personal interest in each student. I have made unbelievably great friends here so far and can't wait to continue to make more! Although in a more remote area, there is plenty to do on and around campus. Messiah's Student Activities Board (SAB) is great with putting together fun off campus activities such as trips to New York for Broadway shows or trips to Washington DC for sports games. Make sure to get involved on campus and don't let wasted time slip by!
I love the atmosphere of Messiah College! People are friendly, faculty are wonderful, and I love it here. There are tons of activities and clubs and volunteer opportunities. If you take advantage of what's available, you'll do well here. But they don't search you out- you have to find them.
