Last Week of Classes!

Commuter Lockers/Lounge

If you are using one of the commuter lockers in the commuter lounge in Hoffman, please be sure that your belongings are cleaned out of the locker by the end of the day on Wednesday, May 11th. Anything left in the lockers on Thursday 5/12 will be taken to the SILP office in Larsen Student Union for the remainder of the week to be claimed. The Commuter Lounge is used by Campus Events over the summer as soon as finals are over, so the space needs to cleaned up and cleaned out right away.

 If you have any belongings in the commuter lounge please be sure to remove them.

If you have any questions about your locker, please don’t hesitate to ask.  We will be lending out the lockers again in the fall, so keep your eyes out on your email about when the time is right to reserve one.  Again good luck and have a great summer!

2016-2017 Theatre and Dance Schedule!

Written by: Sarah Ruhl
Directed by: Dan Inouye
Poorman Black Box Theater; October 6-9
On the day of her wedding, Eurydice falls victim to a tragic accident that sends her hurtling into a wonderland of an Underworld: ripped from her beloved Orpheus, the greatest musician in the world, Eurydice is reunited with her dead father in the Land of the Dead. Orpheus journeys to retrieve his bride, but Eurydice has begun to discover that the cost of living again can sometimes exceed the cost of staying dead. Full of poetry, lyrical beauty, and wit, Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice transforms a traditional myth into a visceral, contemporary meditation on love worth grieving for.

Written by: D.W. Gregory
Directed by: Elizabeth Angelozzi
Miller Theater; Nov. 10-13 & 17-20
Between 1917 and 1926 female factory workers were employed to paint watch dials with a new self-luminous paint containing radium. Many of these women suffered severe health conditions as a result of radiation poisoning. Radium Girls follows the true story of how Grace Fryer led her fellow workers to challenge the safety practices of the labor industry, the morality of scientific innovation and the greed of corporate America.

Dear Members of the Campus Community,

Over the past few days, we have seen a significant increase in the number of students becoming ill with fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.    While there has been no laboratory confirmation, these symptoms are consistent with Norovirus infection, a highly contagious stomach virus.  According to the Department of Health, this virus is also currently being seen widely in our outlying community.

Norovirus is a virus that can spread quickly from person to person, such as in college dormitories or classroom settings.  People can become infected with the virus by touching surfaces contaminated with the virus, having direct contact with someone who is ill or by eating foods that have been contaminated with the virus.

 Because it is very contagious:

·         It is important that if you become infected that you to wash your hands well and frequently and avoid crowded places. 

·         If you experience any of the symptoms described above, you should not attend classes or work (if you work in dining services) for 48 hours.

·          Additionally, if you were scheduled to work at Special Olympics or on another Service Day project and you are currently symptomatic, we ask that you not attend as we do not want to infect our campus guests.

Most people recover from the virus quickly.  Treatment is symptomatic.  There is no medication that will help you to recover any faster.  Drinking plenty of fluids will help to prevent dehydration. The College will continue to monitor the number of students with these symptoms.  The Engle Health Center will remain in close contact with local health resources.  By working together, our campus community can help promote a healthy environment and reinforce behaviors that prevent the spread of infection.  Please feel free to contact us with questions or concerns.

More information on Norovirus is available at and on our website at:

It’s the last SAB Excursion of the semester!

Back in the fall, we tried to visit Grounds for Sculpture, a sprawling sculpture park just across the river from Philadelphia. A visit from the Pope ended up locking down traffic to the city, and our postponed trip was stopped in its tracks by a hurricane the following weekend.
If this was any other school, the story would stop there.
But this is Messiah College, and it’s going to take more than one of the most influential religious leaders and the strongest Atlantic hurricane of 2015 to stop us! WE ARE NOT GIVING UP!

Come along for a day at Grounds for Sculpture with SAB Excursions, this Saturday, April 23rd, from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM. Tickets are only $10 for admission to the park and bus transportation. Once there, get lost in world-class sculpture and explore the unique grounds, which include paths, forests, hidden areas, and three great places to buy lunch.
As always, sign up at the SILP desk, upstairs in the Union, between 4:30 PM and 1:30 AM between Monday, April 18 and Friday, April 22nd. $10, cash or check only please!Here are the details you need:
Saturday, April 23rd, 10:00 AM – 5:30 PM
The bus leaves Eisenhower Circle at 10:00 AM, so arrive about 15 minutes early
Bring your own lunch, or bring money for food at one of the three locations
Again, tickets are just $10! a little excursion of your own to the Union today and get signed up for the last trip of the semester!See you out there!

Game Night!


 Tender Land


Come hear and see why Messiah’s Opera Workshop won first place in the 2014 National Opera Association opera production competition, as it joins forces with the Department of Theatre and Dance and the Messiah College Symphony Orchestra for a fully mounted production of Aaron Copland’s “The Tender Land.”

Performances are April 7, 8, and 9 at 8:00pm and April 10 at 3:00pm in Miller Theater. Tickets are available at the ticket office, online at, by phone at 717-691-6036, or at the door.

Originally conceived as an opera for television in the early 1950s, “The Tender Land” revolves around the Moss family, living in a rural Midwestern town, and the graduation of their oldest daughter, Laurie, who is unsure of her future in the world and what she will do after high school. At a party on the eve of graduation, Laurie falls in love with Martin, a migrant worker. They plan to elope, but then Martin abandons Laurie. In her despair, her family consoles her, but she realizes the time has come to leave and become her own person.

Come support your fellow Messiah students as they present an incredible story told through opera!

Once the class is full you will get bumped to your second choice. If you sign up and are not able to make it, please email Tommy Bennett ( as soon as possible so we can fill the spot with someone else.

Remember, CPR certifications expire after every two years so make sure you take this opportunity to recertify or get certified. You are responsible for your cards once you get them; please put them in a safe place where you will you remember and access them when needed.

Hope to see you all there. Please feel free to contact campus EMT’s Louis Gallo (Co-Chief), Arnie Kotte (Co-Chief), Carly Dove (Lt.
