Minding the Spirit: Spiritual Formation and Loving God with Your Mind
College Ministries and the Department of Biblical and Religious Studies
Location:  Hostetter Chapel

Spiritual formation is a critical piece of a Messiah College education.  But studying spirituality and thinking carefully about our religious experiences is a new exercise for many of our students.  Further, the academic study of God and the Bible, while invigorating to some, can be challenging to others.  This presentation will explore the various kinds of spirituality found on campus and seek to help students appreciate the role of Bible and theology courses in their academic and spiritual lives.

You Don’t Have To Be Superwoman To Stay Safe
(For Females Only)
Department of Safety Staff
Location:  Hostetter Chapel
How safe is Messiah College? Would you know how to protect yourself if confronted at night? Do you know how to report an incident and to whom? As females, it is our time to learn to develop and enhance our options of self defense so we are better prepared to protect ourselves at all times. Attending this informative session will give you an opportunity to learn what options are available to you to have the will power, the strength, and the knowledge on defending yourself and surviving an attack. The above questions, and more, will be answered by the Department of Safety so your first experience at college will be a safe and healthy one.

One in Four: How to Help a Sexual Assault Survivor- What Men Can Do
(For Males Only)
Doug Wood
Associate Dean of Students
Location: Brubaker Auditorium
Video presentation of “One in Four”
One in Four is an all-male sexual assault peer
education group at Messiah College.  We present a one-hour program "how to help a sexual assault survivor - what men can do" to any group of men who will listen.  We also perform for co-ed audiences from time to time.  Our name "One In Four" has a dual meaning.  First it refers to the nation-wide research study indicating that one in four college women report surviving rape or attempted rape since their 14th birthday.  Secondly, we seek to be the ones who inform other men how to help women recover from a rape experience.
