Messiah College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
If you are seeking a school that will support your faith while also providing you with excellent academics and extracurricular activities then Messiah College should definitely be on your top ten list. I attended Messiah College as an undergrad majoring in Chinese. The curriculum for my major was organized very well, had high expectations and had abundant opportunities to support my learning and future career. The major is combined with a rigorous study abroad program which is also a requirement for graduation. This major has been gaining popularity however the class sizes at the higher levels are very small, less than 4 people per class. Regardless of the class size, the professors go above and beyond to guide, teach and support you in your academic development.
Messiah College is a fantastic school with a wide variety of academic majors and minors offered. Their graduate program is also growing rapidly as well. The faculty and staff are very caring, and they do a great job preparing you for your chosen field.
Messiah College is an amazing school. Professors truly invest in their students. Class sizes foster these relationships and student academics. The experience truly makes you a better person, building your character, allowing you to reflect on your faith, and realizing your purpose in both your career and your life overall. I would recommend this school to anyone, just realize that it will cost you, literally.
I loved my experience at Messiah! The community atmosphere allowed me to grow and flourish into the person I am today. Now in the workforce, I feel that my experiences serving the community as a nursing student give me a broader perspective than many other nurses.
Lots of good teachers, and a great community of students. The required religion is stressed a little too much for my taste, but not too restricting overall. Sports are a big part of the college life as well.
Most people wouldn't know of Grantham, Pennsylvania if you mentioned it. It's a village, not a town or city, but literally a village and it's made up primarily of Messiah College and its students. In central PA, relatively close to hubs like Philadelphia, NYC, DC and smaller but significant areas like Lancaster and Gettysburg, Grantham and Messiah College have opportunity spanning for miles around. I grew up with Messiah College not too far from home and that meant I almost didn't attend after I got accepted. It was my back up school, but with opportunities like internships, jobs in the state capitol area of Harrisburg and plenty of study abroad options to choose from, I knew I'd never feel like I was stuck in the middle of nowhere. I got to travel and live in over 5 countries around the world in my short 4 years here and gained some experiences I would have never guessed I'd experiences (sorry for the cliche, but it's true!). I've had the comfort of being a name and not a number in classes that range from two to thirty-two people. My professors have always taken an interest in me and my goals and I know I will continue to have lasting relationships with them after I graduate. It was really that reason that I felt comfortable enough to say yes to the college. I'm encouraged to be myself, challenged to think in new ways, expected to do and be my best, and looked out for when life isn't the easiest. It takes a village to raise a child. This village raised me these past 4 years, and now I'm off to take on the world and I feel rather prepared and excited to do so.
