Visitor's Policy: Members of the Media
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.) the Office of Marketing and Public Relations at 717-691-6027.
- During non-business hours: Campus Dispatch Office at 717-766-2511, who will contact the Assistant Director of Public Relations, or in her absence, the Director of Marketing and Public Relations, 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 Public Relations or that office's designee. (With the exception of journalists who are covering campus athletic events; 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 Public Relations.
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 Public Relations or Campus Safety.
Questions regarding this policy should be referred to the Office of Marketing and Public Relations at 717-691-6027.
This policy for members of the media is part of the College's broader Campus Visitor's Policy.
