Week 5 has come, with the sun’s relentless second wind. Drink water. Eat food. Binge Netflix only ONE day a week. Budget your week according to your work.

safetyNational Safety Month!

It’s the final week of National Campus Safety Awareness month. Today we would like for you to consider the kind of community member you are- how do you actively respect and care for those around you? One way we can promote safety in the Messiah College community is by being good neighbors and by looking out for the best interests of those around us.


We are excited to announce we have added another Pizza with Professionals to our calendar: AT&T!

Come join us on Thursday, October 5th from Noon-1 pm in Parmer Cinema to hear from Dan Blemings ’93, Global Lifecycle Product Manager for AT&T’s multi-billion dollar Ethernet products used by businesses for data networking.

Consider study abroad!

Greetings from the Intercultural office. As you finish up the first month of classes on campus this fall, we also hope that you will consider whether a study abroad experience is in your future as a Messiah College student. As you know, we offer a number of study abroad opportunities. One such opportunity you should know about is the BestSemester programs offered in partnership with the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities.

These programs are Christ-centered, provide culturally-immersive experiential learning, and enable you to study abroad with students from other Christian colleges. Through BestSemester you’ll not only learn a new culture but develop lasting friendships and grow in your faith in the process.

BestSemester programs are offered overseas in Australia, Costa Rica, Oxford, and Uganda.

In addition, there are three professionally-focused programs in the U.S.:
American Studies Program (Washington, D.C.)
Contemporary Music Center (Nashville)
Los Angeles Film Studies Center

Learn more about all of these programs at or come visit us in the Intercultural Office to learn more about BestSemester programs as well as many other study abroad opportunities that are available. To make an appointment, go to and find a time that works for you!

We look forward to seeing you!
