Is there a way to message students in a course before that course is published?

 @lmm51 , no, there is no way in Canvas to message students before the course is published. Yet, you can publish the course and as long as the start date hasn't occurred the students won't have access to your course. 

Hope this helps!

So, if an announcement is created and then the course is published, it just shows up in the announcements tab. It doesn't launch the announcement and notify the students once the course is published?

That is correct, hallmans‌. If you want to issue an announcement to new students at the beginning of the course, you'll need to publish the course first, then create the announcement.
