College closed October 30

During the night, Messiah’s Grantham Campus lost power in its non-residential buildings (but all student residences do still have electricity). Given the extent of the outage, the College is closed for Tuesday, October 30, and classes and college activities are suspended until further notice. Essential employees should report as scheduled. Non-essential employees should not come to campus today. Lottie Nelson Dining Room will continue to be open (with limited menu) to serve students. Larsen Student Union, which was announced yesterday to be opening at noon, is also now closed for the day.

PP&L was notified of the outage immediately, but college officials have not yet heard from them about the potential timeline for restoring power to the affected buildings. More details will be communicated as they become available.
