| I visited Messiah when I was a junior in high school and fell in love with the place right away. After applying a year later and getting accepted with a decent scholarship, I decided to attend. My freshman year was nothing but pleasant. From the friendly faculty to the genuine student body, I can honestly say that I'm sad my first year has come to a close. |
My major is English with Secondary Education so technically I'm in both the English and the Ed. departments. While I haven't taken an Ed class yet, the English department has been wonderful. Faculty is always available to help and you can tell that they really care about students. I learned a lot in my introductory courses and am excited to get into the meat of my major next semester.
The social life at Messiah is what it is. The weekends can get boring (especially for freshman because you can't have a car), but there is usually something going on. Concerts, dances, coffee house, movies at parmer, etc. made the weekends bearable. I'm excited to have my car next year so I can spend some time off campus. Don't let the social life stop you from coming here, I found a great group of friends and we always figured out something to do.
The campus itself is beautiful, especially in the fall and spring. Those long winter months can be brutal, but it was worth it to see the flowers coming out at the end of March. The facilities are top notch, the new High Center is stunning and the recent renovation of the library is great. I wouldn't trade my first year at Messiah for anything, I can't wait to go back in the fall.

| Messiah College is a top-notch school. They have an amazing reputation and excellent academics. The professors are incredible! I did not appreciate it enough while I was there, but since graduating (3 years ago) and learning more about other university experiences, I can say they are nearly unparalleled if you want to experience God and a high level of academia. I got an amazing job before I even graduated with outstanding pay and I was prepared perfectly for it. |

| I absolutely love messiah! I couldn't ever imagine myself anywhere else. I love my program: I'm an Elementary Education major with a minor in Spanish, considering a second minor in TESOL. The professors are fantastic! They are all so knowledgeable and they really seem to care about me as a student. I don't feel like I'm just a random face in the back of a lecture hall. Academically, the school is really focused on learning and creativity, not just getting grades.|
I've never felt anything less than safe here at Messiah. The campus is beautiful (especially during the fall!) with trees everywhere, nature trails and the Yellow Breeches creek running through. The buildings and facilities are in great condition and easy to access for whatever I need. There's always something to do here, whether it's just hanging out with the guys in the dorm, free concerts every Wednesday night, dollar movies every weekend, or going to a sports game. I love the academic, spiritual, and social life here at Messiah...it really is a great place!
