I love Messiah College, the atmosphere is always so positive for academics and students personal health. I feel extremely safe and I love the teachers and opportunities we are given. Being here has helped me grow in my faith and in my individuality. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A really great school to build friendships and strengthen your faith. Not everyone that goes here is a Christian so don't be expecting that. The party seen is very lacking, but we make up for it with some other fun stuff. Fun school if you aren't a huge fan of the party scene.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Messiah! It has a very welcoming environment and the people truly know how to make you feel at home. The academics are challenging but not over the top, there is a lot of athletic talent and team pride but not so much that it distracts one from the classroom, the arts are well-appreciated, the outdoors are regularly used and engaged with, the professors are very personable and like to build relationships with their students, the facilities are being renovated as I write, and the faith community is incredibly strong and inspirational.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Messiah College is an absolutely incredible school! This college has some of the most amazing departments around. We are a division 3 school with unbelievable sports teams. I have met some of the nicest people I have ever met here. The food here is a lot better than a lot of the college campuses I have been on. The campus is placed close enough to Harrisburg so you can go into the city if you would like to but you are far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. The Yellow Breeches is a creek that runs next to the campus and makes for a good kayaking, tubing, and fishing spot. Messiah is a Christian college and even provides transportation to church services for many different denominations of Christianity. There is even a student led worship "concert" every Thursday night called Powerhouse. It is the perfect de-stressor if you have had a long week. The only reason I am giving Messiah 4 out of 5 stars is that it is not the cheapest school to go to. It is a little expensive for me. Tuition, room and board, and other fees run approximately $46,000 annually.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was a very nice and friendly atmosphere. Everyone is very kind and there is a small-college atmosphere. You will get to know more people because it is so small. It's a good size, a little bigger than a high school. Overall, it was great, just needs some updated dorms, which they are working on! It's a beautiful campus and has great trails, too, and the town it is in and surrounds are wonderful!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school. The best thing about Messiah college is the professors are incredible with a few exceptions. Professors generally care about the education and knowledge of their students and are willing to help. The biggest issue is there is almost nothing to do on weekends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have found Messiah College to be a school that successfully strives for excellence in every area of student's lives. The school promotes a faith - based atmosphere with both school and student - led opportunities for spiritual growth. There is a strong focus on both academic and athletic achievement, with many professors who work hard to connect with students and help in every way possible. I appreciate greatly that a sense of community at the school is a high priority, and if you are willing to get involved there are many opportunities for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Messiah college has an array of wonderful benefits. Just a few include the academic atmosphere and the social atmosphere. The academic atmosphere is perfect, students are encouraged to connect with professors and professors are dedicated to helping students achieve their academic and spiritual goals. The social atmosphere is very different to secular schools people are more likely to have Jesus based relationships with each other and empower one another to reach their full potential. Messiah College is a school I would highly recommend to anyone who would like to keep their Christian faith at the core of their education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Messiah is a really great school. It really empower's Christ for overall well-being. The student body is really great and pretty supportive. The professors are very knowledgable and extremely nice. The supervisors at the main dining hall are amazing and very nice. They are here for you (when they really know you but they like to be here for anyone). Counseling services are small and much needed, so hopefully that will change in the dear future.
