Welcome Week 2016 | Theme: Under Construction
Thursday, August 25 through Thursday, September 1, 2016
Welcome! We’re thrilled you've chosen Messiah College!
Part of the Messiah College campus is under construction. And this is a good thing. Sure, construction can be messy at times, but the end result is something to be celebrated. In a way, we’re all under construction—and that’s particularly true for college students. When you arrive to Messiah College, you’re entering a construction zone of sorts. Throughout your time here, you’ll belong to a thriving community of scholars who will work hard to edify you, purposefully building you up for what’s next. So be confident of this: That the good work God started in you will continue on here (Philippians 1:6). We’re excited to be a part of God’s construction plan for your life!
All new and transfer students (including commuters) should plan to arrive on Thursday, Aug. 25, 9 a.m.–2 p.m. (EST). When you get to campus, please follow signs directly to Eisenhower Campus Center and be prepared to show a photo ID at check-in. Later that day, family and friends are invited to join you for the Candlelight Celebration of Praise and Worship at 6:30 p.m. Be sure to check back on this website for updates and more information, including details about our parent webinar on Aug. 4!
The 2016 Welcome Week orientation schedule will be published in August. Check back for updates. In the meantime, get a glimpse of what's in store for you by checking out last year's Move-In Day video below.
