At Messiah College, student success is not simply defined as
excellent grades or placement on the honor roll, but also how each
student through out-of-the-classroom experiences, matures to a level
consistent with the mission of the College - to educate men and women
toward maturity of intellect , character and Christian faith in
preparation for lives of service, leadership, and reconciliation in
church and society.
The Division of Student Affairs is committed to developing and
nurturing the whole student. We achieve this goal through a holistic
cocurriculum that continually assesses the outcome of each student's
learning and character development. We believe these combined formative
learning attributes prepare students for a successful and rewarding
future, ready to serve and lead, out of a deep sense of who God calls
them to be.
