Weekly Updates!

Reminders and updates for this week:
  • Check the "Chapel Hosting" tab
  • Sign-up for Overnight hosting and Spotlight day tours/greeting!
    • This Thursday is the last overnight for the semester! If you haven't fulfilled the semester hosting requirements, or you'd like to earn some extra points - this is your chance!

  • Great job Sierra, Regan, & Kenedy the School of Business, Education, and Social Sciences & School of Humanities Spotlight Day student panel!

  • Thank you again everyone that helped out calling for just 30 minutes or several hours at the calling campaign last week! We called a total of 2,132 students and couldn't have done it without you!


Campus Tour Script
It has come to our attention that some of the information being communicated on tours is incorrect. Please pay special attention to these areas on your campus tours:
  • Division III Athletics
    • When talking about Messiah's athletic programs, simply state that "Messiah is an NCAA Division III school with 11 men's and 11 women's varsity teams"
      • Do not specifically state that we are DIII because of the size of the school.
  • Gen Ed/Foreign Language requirements
    • We always want to avoid speaking about ways to "get out of" courses, because that communicates that they are not valuable. For example, you should say -
      • the language placement test "allows you to be placed in the level of a language that is right for you" OR
      • study abroad/cross-cultural courses "allow you to fulfill your language requirement by being immersed in another culture".
  • Film, Media, & Broadcasting Suite
    • Located in Hostetter Chapel, this studio includes a television studio space, a simulated newsroom, an endless floor green screen, a fully equipped control room, a Foley sound studio, and a digital editing suite
    • Fun fact: we have the same type of camera that was used to film the Hobbit!
    • This is a great space for students interested in Digital Media, Film, Communication, and Broadcasting

Upcoming Events
  • Christmas at Hershey!
    • Let's celebrate the end of the semester and Christmastime together with our yearly tradition of going to Hershey Park Christmas Candylane!
