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. (EDT). 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 Thursday, Aug. 4, at 7 p.m. (EDT), designed to answer any outstanding questions parents may have and pass on helpful tips for a smooth Move-In Day! In the meantime, see the tentative general schedule by clicking on Schedule of Events on the left-hand navigation menu.
