On Commencement day, traffic personnel will direct guests to designated parking areas on campus. From there, a shuttle service will transport guests between their parking area and the athletic complex both before and after the Commencement ceremony. The distance from the shuttle drop-off point to the ceremony site is a quarter-mile walk on a paved surface. Special transportation will be available on a limited basis for those guests requiring assistance between the shuttle drop point and the ceremony site.

 

  • Disability Parking: Limited disability parking is available at the ceremony site and requires either: 1) a official state-issued disability parking hang tag or 2) a special college-issued parking pass, which will need to be picked up by the graduate in advance for his/her guests, beginning May 5, 2014, from the Dispatch Office located in the Eisenhower Campus Center.

  • Undergraduate Commuter Students: Commuters may pick up a parking pass at the Dispatch Office located in Eisenhower Campus Center beginning May 5, 2014. Commuters must have a pass in order to park near Eisenhower Campus Center on Commencement day, and should arrive on campus no later than 8:00 a.m. to avoid delays in getting to the ceremony.

 

  • Graduate Students: Graduate students who are participating in the Commencement ceremony will be mailed (in April) a parking pass prior to Commencement. Master's program graduates must display their parking pass in order to park near Eisenhower Campus Center on Commencement day, and should arrive on campus no later than 8:00 a.m. to avoid delays in getting to the ceremony. Master’s program graduates who would like to request a disability parking pass for either themselves or a guest should contact Tonya Baker no later than May 5, 2014, at tbaker@messiah.edu or (717) 796-1800, ext. 7050.
