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.

Winter Driving Tips

As the snowy season is upon us, be careful driving in winter weather. If you feel unsafe driving to campus you can always email your professor to stay updated with class. You can also sign up for Messiah text alerts and receive a text when decisions are made or call the emergency line at 717-691-6084. Sign up for text alerts here.

ACDA Hymn Sing

Tired of J-Term?? Then join us on Thursday, January 12th for a good old fashion hymn sing. That’s right, invite your friends and come down to the High Center at 7pm for a time of hymn singing with organ and piano (and even a time to request your favorite hymn). You won’t want to miss this event. Musical leadership will be provided by Mr. Eric Dundore. Mr. Dundore is the Director of Music at St. Paul’s U.C.C. in Mechanicsburg for the last 31 years and a retired public school teacher . So take a break from the books…and come sing some hymns!
The details: Thursday, January 12, 7pm, Parmer Hall (in the High Center) Bring friends, and we’ll see you there!

Thanks, The American Choral Directors Association
