Walkout Against Gun Violence

WOAV poster

Tomorrow… Friday, April 20, at 10 a.m. on Eisenhower Lawn, several student organizations are sponsoring a “Walkout Against Gun Violence” event in an effort to bring greater attention to the growing issue of gun violence in our nation. This event coincides with the 19th anniversary of the Columbine school shooting and other national walkout events across the U.S.

This event, which is scheduled to last about an hour, is organized by several students in collaboration with many of the Messiah College Student Government Association’s executive organizations, including the Student Activities Board, Multicultural Council, Human Rights Awareness in the Agapé Center, and Minds Matter.Speakers for this event will include: President Kim Phipps, Student Body President Jamie-Claire Chau, as well as other student leaders, faculty and campus administrators. This is not a partisan or political event, and accordingly, we ask that all behavior and expression at the event be respectful, peaceful and avoid divisive discourse. Rather, our stated purposes and goals for this event are:

Purpose: To raise awareness of a growing human rights issue; to demonstrate to the outside community that Messiah College and, by extension, the Christian Church cares about survivors, victims, and all others affected by gun violence; and to not stand by passively and actively engage in the practice of shalom and reconciliation.

Goals:
To demonstrate our commitment to the Brethren in Christ legacy of pacifism
To demonstrate a unified front on behalf of Messiah students, faculty, administrators and staff
To demonstrate that this is not a partisan, politically affiliated event
To increase student and staff engagement in human rights issues by providing resources and ideas for ways they can help
To honor the lives lost to mass shootings, suicide, homicide and all other forms of gun violence

We invite you all to join us at 10 a.m. for this event. Professors and other staff have been made aware in advance of this event. If you have class during this time, you are encouraged to speak to your individual professor, but we cannot guarantee that this will be an excused absence.

During this same week, Human Rights Awareness is displaying a memorial to local victims of gun violence on Eisenhower Lawn. This “Memorial to the Lost” is part of the work of Heeding God’s Call, a Christian organization that works against gun violence nationally. College Ministries and HRA are hosting a Tuesday night chapel on April 17 at 7 p.m. that will be a memorial service for local victims of gun violence.

Thank you!
Your Student Government Association

Parking for 2018-2019 School Year

Online parking registration begins April 26 and concludes on May 15. Each student will be assigned a time slot based on class year, number of credit hours presently enrolled in plus credit hours previously accrued, and current class schedule. The earlier your time slot in the registration process the larger the selection of lots you will have. This applies for commuter students with a larger amount of credit hours who hope to park by Jordan and Kline. Early registration is $50/year.

Commuter Parking 2018-2019 Academic Year

 

All Messiah College undergraduate commuter students parking on campus during the 2018-2019 academic year are required to purchase a commuter parking permit and park in the lot designated by their permit.

 COMMUTER PARKING…. COMMON QUESTIONS:

When is online registration?

Registration takes place between April 26 and May 15.  To receive the early registration price of $50/year you must register prior to May 15.

How is my timeslot calculated and when is it available?

Timeslots are allocated based on your class year, number of credit hours presently enrolled in plus credit hours previously accrued. Your online parking registration timeslot is available now.

Which permits are commuter students eligible to purchase?

Subject to availability, commuter students are eligible to purchase either a P1 parking permit or a P parking permit.

I was a resident student this year but am going to be a commuter next year and I do not see P or P1 as a registration option.

Email, call or go to Falcon Exchange immediately for registration assistance.

Is the P1 permit the same as the P permit?

No.  They are separate permits and are not interchangeable.  See chart below.

Can the P1 permit holders park anywhere in the WW lot?

No.  They may only park in the spots specially designated as Commuter parking. (You will see these spaces in the first row closest to the Commuter lounge.)

Can the P1 permit holders park anywhere in the J lot?

Commuters may park in almost all of the spaces in the J lot.  You may not park in the few spaces labeled as handicapped, service or resident.
