The faculty at Messiah truly make the experience for me. I am a student in the communication department, and they faculty and students in the department truly become like a family. Faculty have taken personal interest in me and allowed me to conduct research with them and get to know them.
The location can be a drawback. Grantham is not a college town. The College does a good job with programming and making sure there is stuff to do, and Harrisburg is only a 15 minute drive.
Yes, Even though it does cost quite a bit, I feel so grateful to be attending a student-centered institution where the undergraduate student is the institution's raison d'etre. The experiences that I have had cannot be put on a price tag. I have formed invaluable relationships with faculty, students, and administration. In short--I love this place. They create a space of exploration while never losing sight of the importance of faith. They truly have achieved the academics/faith balance; both are of high quality.
The financial aid process went smoothly and I received the financial aid I needed.
