MLK week and Campus Entrance

South Entrance Closing at Railroad January 18th- February 1st- UPDATE


We previously reported the railroad crossing would be closed between January 18th and February 1st for work done by Norfolk Southern.

They have now changed the dates for the closing to be between January 23rd and February 3rd. The crossing will NOT be closed the entire time but we are not sure of the exact dates of closure as that will be driven by weather.  Detour signs will be posted to help navigate around the closure.

Please refer to the campus map attached to help with entering and exiting campus during this time.

Questions may be directed to Brad Markley at ext. 3500.

Fines Forgiven…..Feed Families

Did you receive a parking ticket this semester??? We have the solution! For the second year in a row, the Department of Safety is putting a twist on its enforcement for the holiday season to give back to the campus community while helping a local charity.

Cindy Burger, Director of Investigations, Compliance & Training with the Department of Safety is organizing the 2nd annual campaign. The department is giving violators who have been issued parking tickets the opportunity to pay their parking fines with non-perishable food items; these items will then be donated to a local charity.

How it works: Violators who have been issued parking tickets this fall semester (between September 1st through December 9th, 2016) can donate non-perishable food items to have a parking fine waived. The department will accept 10 non-perishable items in lieu of a $15.00 fine, and 20 items in lieu of a $35.00 fine. Maximum fine amount waived per person will be $100.00.

The campaign “Fines Forgiven….Feed Families” is a way for the safety department to connect with students in a positive way by offering amnesty over this holiday season. The campaign also enables Messiah College to provide food for those in our community who are in need.

Donations will be accepted starting Monday, December 5th and continuing through Friday, December 9th. Items can be dropped off at the Dispatch Office located in the Eisenhower Campus Center directly behind the Receptionist Office. Students wishing to have fines waived must provide their Messiah ID along with their items donated.

The Department of Safety is happy to accept donations from individuals even if they don’t have a fine to pay off. Remember they must be non-perishable items. Please consider donating to this worthwhile campaign to help those in our community who are less fortunate have a joyous holiday season!

Thank you from the Department of Safety!!

Ski and Ride Club Trip

The Ski & Ride club is planning to organize a trip to Killington Mountain, VT. again this year during J-Term Break, and it’s time to sign up! We stay in a cabin at a camp in Vermont about 30 minutes away and ski/snowboard for 2 days. We are limited to 25-30 people, but that was not a problem last year. We cannot promise a total trip cost right now, as that completely depends on how many people come, but it should be less than $175 per person, including 2 lift tickets, 3 nights of lodging, transportation, and food for the weekend. Last year, it ended up being quite a bit cheaper than this but there are a lot of variables.

Because we plan to stay in the cabin, we need to reserve it soon, while it is still available. I would like a commitment from people by this Friday (11th), and that would include an $80 deposit so that we can reserve lodging. Tell your friends!

Looking forward to it! It should be an awesome trip again.
Contact Austin Kratz to reserve a spot on the trip or if you have any questions in regards to the trip. Thanks!

Austin Kratz
Ski & Ride President

MCC Haiti Response

To the Messiah College Community,

As you know, many lives were lost and homes destroyed in Haiti during Hurricane Matthew. We write with grieved hearts and ask that you join us in prayer for the families who grieve the loss of loved ones, for health and clean water, and for shelter and food for those who are displaced.

In addition to prayer, if you would like to contribute to disaster relief efforts in Haiti and are not already connected to an organization that is providing emergency response, we’d like to offer information about Mennonite Central Committee as an option. For information about their work and to donate (bottom of the page), please visit their website here:

Thank you for your continued prayer and compassion.
