    The first year is kind of hard, because you most likely won't be able to have your car on campus. They have many events geared towards first years to meet new people. There are coffeehouses every month and movies every weekend.

    Messiah is definitely not a party school, so don't apply here hoping to party your weekends away. Alcohol is not allowed on campus, and the Community Covenant sets strict guidelines for student conduct. On weekends, my friends and I like going off campus, to places like SkyZone or frozen yogurt stores. Harrisburg is very close, and Messiah offers a shuttle into the city, as well.

    The Student Activities Board is great about planning activities for students during the week as well as the weekends. Bsides concerts, $2 lost films on the weekends, dances every month, and so much more are available.

    Alternate Chapels. Hang out at the student center called the Union. Meet new people and hang out with friends. Go to campus events.

    Many people at Messiah College create their own fun with groups of friends. With that said, Messiah is a very active campus. Around campus, you will notice many different sporting activities going on, as well as fun lawn games and hang-out sessions. On campus, there is also a movie theater that plays the newest movies that are in theaters as well. Various times throughout the week, there are many different band that come to campus for concerts. Messiah also arranges many dances and volunteer opportunities. Off campus, Harrisburg and Mechanicsburg are just a few minutes down the road and provide many fun activities as well as a large array of shopping places and restaurants. Hershey Park is also a short thirty-minute drive.
