As your admissions counselor I hope I can be of personal help to you as you consider where you will attend college. At Messiah, you will be taught to examine all knowledge in light of Christian truth. You will develop a Christian worldview that will go with you throughout your lifetime. During the next four years you will develop and cultivate lifelong friendships, stretch your mind academically and learn to serve Jesus Christ.

The Messiah College motto, "Christ Preeminent," says everything about what we think is important. Another slogan, rigorously academic, unapologetically Christian, also lets you know what we value for our students.

You have made a great first step by checking out Messiah's website, and I invite you to set a date for a personal visit to the College. Bring a friend! Check out a concert, visit a class, talk to a professor, cheer at an athletic contest, sample our food, stay overnight in a residence hall and pray about whether Messiah may be in your future.

Please contact me with any questions you may have at, by filling out the questionnaire below, or call me at 800-233-4220. Thanks again!

God bless you!
