The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.

Nahum 1:7



Congratulations to the team from Messiah University that finished 3rd in the state in the 2021 Community Bank Case Study Competition. The team submitted a written research paper on how LINKBANK (Camp Hill, PA) thrived during the pandemic and was able to promote economic development in the southcentral Pennsylvania region in living out its mission of “Positively Impacting Lives”. The team consisted of recent alumni Nicole Ulmer (finance major ’21) and Roman Wagner (applied health science major ‘21) as well as current students Makayla Miller (senior finance major) and Andrew Puleo (senior accounting major).

The name of the Ticket Office has changed to the “Box Office

The Messiah University Box Office is utilizing a new ticketing software called PurplePass. Students now have the ability to purchase one (1) MU student ticket per event online through PurplePass with a credit or debit card. The ticketing system requires a valid student ID number in order to get the discounted student rate. We will continue to offer full-service help at the Box Office window for those wishing to purchase tickets with cash, check or Falcon Dollars. We hope that this change allows for greater flexibility and access to purchase tickets for events on campus.

We look forward to returning to in-person events on campus this year! Please visit our website for ticket sales and information.
