Hello! Thanks for your interest in Messiah College and for taking the time to check out the admissions website. My name is Zach Specht, and I graduated from Messiah in 2013, receiving a bachelor of arts degree in broadcasting with a minor in history. I am thrilled to work with students from New England, New York and Maryland.

As a recent graduate of Messiah, I am able to vividly recall the experiences that impacted me as a student. Through my involvement in service learning, the student alumni council, the campus newspaper, the campus radio station and both on-campus and off-campus internships, Messiah has provided me with a plethora of experiences to refine who I am. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to attend Messiah and be educated in an atmosphere where faith is integrated with intellect. The professors at Messiah College are passionate about the curriculum they teach and genuinely care about their students, both in and outside of the classroom. Furthermore, living in a Christian community made my college experience a memorable four years highlighted by a stronger commitment to my faith and a desire to learn and cultivate life-long relationships.
