Take this brief survey to help the College determine the best way to fulfill the campus community’s transportation and parking needs.

The survey was developed in partnership with SGA, the Department of Safety, Office of Sustainability, Institutional Research, and the Falcon Exchange.

Service Day Is Coming!

A whole day to love your community.

Messiah is one of the few colleges in the world that offers up a whole day for service. It’s core to our mission—and to our faith.

Pray about this: We invite you to connect with one of local projects this April 20th. This does require sacrifice (you could sleep in, grade papers, do homework, do housework) and it might be uncomfortable—but we ask you to step into loving our neighbors in a variety of ways.

  1. Serve with Special Olympics: As CCC students & educators are serving as Buddies, we only have a handful of Buddy spots available for sophomores, juniors & seniors. We also need volunteers for set up, clean up, track events, logistics, and clowns. If you have clearances, please consider being a zone monitor. Sign up here: http://agapecenter-2017areamspecialomessiahcollege.partnershipplanners.org/volunteer/  (position details can be found within the form)
  1. Join a project: A variety of projects are led by members of the Messiah community—both on and off campus. Descriptions and sign-ups are on our site and will be updated daily: https://www.messiah.edu/info/22586/service_day
  1. Lead a project: Do you and your friends, club/team/group members, or co-workers want to serve together? Propose a project below! Please note that you’re responsible for coordinating your own transportation. Propose a project here: http://messiah.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_09hHAYmIf1vajRz
