Messiah College Kim S. Phipps Admissions and Welcome Center
One outcome of the recent master planning effort at Messiah College was the desire for a new admissions and welcome center. The location for this building was important because it is intended to not only welcome prospective students, but also provide registrar and financial aid services to current students. A main goal with this project was to remove parking and vehicles from the main academic area of campus and create a green space for the campus community along with improved pedestrian circulation. Derck & Edson took the lead in not only the siting of this ever important building, but the building programming and schematic design as well.
