A Word of Welcome from the Director

I’m so glad your family has chosen Messiah University! As you prepare to leave your student on our campus, you may have varied reactions and emotions. In the midst of the pride and excitement, you may also feel some concern that your student will adjust well and thrive at Messiah.


At the Engle Center for Counseling and Health Services, we share your desire that your student be well and do well. Members of our counseling and medical staff have years of experience caring for students, and we know that parents are an important ally in the educational process. Students trust their parents’ advice, much more than they sometimes admit! So when we equip you with resources that help you work with your student, everyone wins! Please take a few moments to browse through the information available on our site to see what might help you and your student as you make this important life transition.


God bless you and your family on the journey ahead!
