Many Students have been shaped by their participation in External Programs offered through Messiah College. In 1997, Mesiah College made an innovative decision to gather all programs sending students to study and learn beyond the Grantham Campus under one adminstrative umbrella, called "External Programs."
"I wanted to have some kind of direction about how my life will be after graduation...In teaching me about himself God also wove in a vision for what my life should be. I am no longer dreading my graduation date. A wise man once said, 'Have the experience, get the meaning'...What an experience I have been given! As far as the meaning, I'm bringing that home with me."
