The diversity of people at Messiah is, well, lacking. But don’t take that to mean that the school doesn't try. Messiah College stresses the importance of diversity and puts forth a valiant effort to recruit international students and people from a variety of ethnicities. The Office of Multicultural Programs hosts an annual International Banquet in celebration of Messiah's international, missionary, and third culture students and the diversity of culture they bring to the College community.
Messiah students are very accepting of minorities on campus. Due to the homogenous student population, a little diversity in Grantham is always exciting. Most students enjoy hearing new and different ideas that may challenge their own beliefs and force them to re-evaluate their own opinions. Because of the nature of the school's beliefs, it is extremely common to hear people in a friendly debate at any time and any place on campus over deep issues such as atheism, gay rights, and sex. In fact, it is rare to go a few days without hearing or participating in a discussion of this kind. The lines of communication at Messiah are always open, and no topic is taboo. Many students take the motto to heart that no belief is strong until it has been challenged and all other possibilities considered.
