Messiah College Reviews
Review Messiah College
At Messiah, you'll have a blast at all times! There is always something going on, as well as something to get involved with. The academics and professors are second to none, and they truly care about every student. Another great part of Messiah is the lack of the party scene. This means that the students have a great experience, educationally and socially, without having the downfalls and temptations of drugs and alcohol. Overall, Messiah is a great school with less than what anyone would expect from a great college.
It was a very nice and friendly atmosphere. Everyone is very kind and there is a small-college atmosphere. You will get to know more people because it is so small. It's a good size, a little bigger than a high school. Overall, it was great, just needs some updated dorms, which they are working on! It's a beautiful campus and has great trails, too, and the town it is in and surrounds are wonderful!
Before Messiah College, I was a "college is what you make of it" type of person. I am only writing this review because I remember looking up the reviews before decided on this school and I wish I someone would have warned me. If you love upper middle class white people and watching movies every weekend of your life, this school may be for you. However if you value independence and any type of diversity (don't let them fool you), seriously consider going somewhere else. The college will force you to sign a contract limiting all your rights as an adult, including visiting your friends past 1 am. Then they will force you to live on campus in tiny rooms for an outrageous amount of money. The Nursing Program is astounding to me. They boast a high passing rate of the NCLEX but that is because they have kicked out any person with a small chance of failing it. Instead of tailoring their teaching, they create unrealistic qualifications that will send you into an academia version of survivor.
