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.

Move-In Day & Welcome Week Parent Webinar 2016

Please join us on Thursday, Aug. 4 at 7 p.m. (EDT) for a Move-In Day & Welcome Week Webinar. Our goal is to make families feel equipped with answers to any questions regarding the Move-In Day process at Messiah College.

The webinar will:

  • Review steps your student should've accomplished prior to arrival (choosing their room, academic courses, getting ID ready)
  • Discuss what to bring/not bring to campus
  • Provide information concerning safety on campus
  • Help you navigate student financial services, student employment, & payroll
  • Touch on areas such as academic support and advising, disability services, library facilities, and FERPA
  • And, of course, address what to expect on Move-In Day

Registration is open now (click here). Put this on your calendar and don’t miss this informative session.

If you're unable to participate in the live webinar on Thursday, Aug. 4, there will be a recording of the webinar available beginning on Friday, Aug. 5, at 11 a.m. (EDT). Check back here for more information at that time.
