FAQs - Visiting Campus

Students are welcome to arrange daily (avaialble most weekdays and select Saturdays) individual visits or attend a larger event day, such as Open Houses, Academmic Spotlight Days or Falcon Fridays held throughout the year. See a full array of visits options at

An individual campus visit includes a walking tour of our gorgeous 375-acre campus by a current Messiah student. The tour takes about an hour and includes stops at a residence hall, academic buildings, the library, the student union, indoor athletic facilities and more. Enjoy the opportunity to meet with an Admissions Counselor who will help you find out how your interests and Messiah University can merge in a dynamic way. You can share your accomplishments and dreams, discuss the application process, find out how to finance a college education and learn more about Messiah's diverse curricular and co-curricular offerings. You will also get to eat a meal in the dining hall (our treat!), and, with advance notice, be able to meet with a professor or coach, attend chapel or observe a class.

There are also larger events such as Open Houses and Academic Spotlight Days. Small and large group activities are offered to introduce the wide variety of educational opportunities available to students. Other highlights include campus tours, information sessions led by academic departments, financial aid and campus life.




Overnight visits are available for accepted first year and transfer students in conjunction with our Accepted Student Preivew Days. There is no better way to experience Messiah firsthand than by being hosted by one of our Messiah University student hosts! Accepted students can find more information about overnight opportunities through the event page.

When making an individual visit (on a weekday), all attempts will be made for you to sit in on a class or meet with a faculty member/coach in your area of interest. However, sometimes during testing or breaks, visitors might not be able to experience a class. (We do ask for at least a two-week notice to arrange these special appointments. Each class or professor/coach needs to be contacted to check on availability for your specific visit day.)
