“What made me ultimately choose Messiah University was the relationships that faculty and students have outside and inside the classroom. There are so many opportunities to work closely with faculty, and they care about their students a lot.”

“The deciding factor for me choosing to attend Messiah University was the quality of people. I have come to understand through my time here that when Messiah University talks about its community, it refers to a collection of high-quality people who pursue faith and excellence.”

Amanda Amanda Rossi
Nursing ‘21

“I knew I was called to be a nurse when I was 2 years old. I’m so thankful and blessed to be able to pursue my goal at the number one nursing school in Pennsylvania. It would not have been possible for me to attend an amazing institution like Messiah if it were not for the generous support from donors like you. After graduation, I will be working as a registered nurse in a Medical-Surgical Intensive Care Unit. I know I am ready for this job because of the intense and holistic preparation by Messiah’s Nursing Department. Thank you for helping make my dreams possible.”

Josiah Josiah Gonzales

“My experience in the biology department has been phenomenal. I have formed great relationships with professors and classmates that will last a lifetime. I have gotten hands-on research experience that has helped me to prepare for life after college. After graduation, I plan on going to PA school.”

Kendra Sommers
Politics and International Relations ‘21

“Growing up overseas as a missionary kid, this only added to the worry about choosing a college, not easily being able to visit colleges in America and finances was always a concern. During the admission process, I was impressed by how much I felt wanted by Messiah, and they were very generous in accommodating to my financial needs. Now at Messiah, I feel confident in knowing that this is where I am meant to be.”

Lauren Lauren Patterson

“My involvement with the Career and Professional Development Center has equipped me with the skills and real-world experiences to take with me in my future life endeavors. If it wasn’t for the donor's generosity, I would not have gotten many of these experiences. After graduation, I plan on working for a company in Philadelphia doing communication and marketing!”
