Welcome Week 2014


*** 2014 schedule is still being determined.  This is last year's schedule (2013). We anticipate that 2014's schedule will be very similar, if not the same.  Please use this for planning purposes only.


Welcome Week is mandatory for all incoming first-year and transfer students.  This year, Welcome Week is a week-long event, running from August 28 through September 4.  The following information is an approximation of the final orientation schedule.  More details will follow during the summer months; all new and transfer students will receive the final schedule at check-in on August 28.


All new and transfer students, including commuters, should arrive on campus between 9am-2pm on Thursday August 28. Check-in for all students is in the Eisenhower Campus Center. All students must check-in at Eisenhower prior to moving into their residence hall or apartment. There will be an express-line for Transfer Students.


If you have any questions about Welcome Week please contact the Student Involvement & Leadership Programs Office, at (717)796-5240 or e-mail us at:

The Student Involvement & Leadership Programs office is located in the Larsen Student Union.



Make your lodging reservations early! There are many other events in the area this fall which cause hotels and motels to fill up quickly. All of these hotels offer a discount rate to family members of Messiah College students. When making reservations, be sure to indicate that you are associated with Messiah College.
