“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

ISAIAH 41:10


Wireless network changes (IMPORTANT)

Campus wireless networks are changing to enhance both security and ease of use for campus guests. This may require you to reconnect devices to the wireless prior to the dates below to ensure reliable usage. There are two new wireless networks available NOW that you should begin using before the old ones are turned off. “Messiah Secure” – Employees and students should use this network to ensure access to everything you need using encrypted communications. Most Windows-based computers owned by the College should automatically use this network but some may not be automatic so please check. Mac computers and mobile devices will NOT automatically change. Information on how to connect Windows, Chromebook, MacOS, iOS and Android devices are in the following blog article: “Messiah Guest” – Intended for guests to campus who only need basic internet access. It will require checking a box to agree to Messiah policies every 24 hours. It cannot be used to access college resources such as Canvas, self-service, Banner, Unimarket, etc. If college services are needed, connect to Messiah Secure instead. The two networks above are replacing MC-WPA and MC-Open which will be no longer be available following this schedule: Monday, Aug. 13

MC-Open removed from entire campus MC-WPA removed from residence halls only Monday, Sept. 17

MC-WPA removed from entire campus If you have questions, concerns or need assistance with this change, please review the blog article mentioned previously or contact the ITS Helpdesk at ext. 4444 from a campus phone or 717-796-4444 from a cell or off-campus phone.
