For the media

Information for the media

The Office of Marketing and Communications handles all media relations for Messiah College, including supporting the Crisis Management Team in handling all communications during a campus emergency

Reporters are invited to contact our office with inquiries, whether seeking comments from a College spokesperson, requesting an interview with an employee or student, or seeking credentials to cover a campus event. 

Media Visitor Policy

Prior to coming to Messiah's campus, all members of the media should coordinate the purpose and logistics of their visit by contacting:

  • During business hours (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.): Office of Marketing and Communications at 717-691-6027.
  • During non-business hours: Campus Dispatch Office at 717-766-2511, who will contact the Director of Communications, or in her absence, the Executive Director of Marketing and Communications, to coordinate any necessary arrangements.

While on campus, all members of the media must be escorted by a member of the Office of Marketing and Communications or that office's designee. An exception to this is journalists  covering campus athletic events as athletics media relations are managed by the Department of Athletics.

Members of the media are not permitted in student residences, classrooms or other non-public areas of campus without explicit, pre-arranged permission from the Office of Marketing and Communications.

Media must display visible credential identification at all times and park in appropriate visitor parking areas or in areas designated by either the Office of Marketing and Communications or Campus Safety.

Questions regarding this policy should be referred to the Office of Marketing and Communications at 717-691-6027.

This policy for members of the media is part of the College's broader Campus Visitor's Policy.
