Power Outage

Power is coming back to much of campus, however, Internet and Outlook service is spotty.  Classes are being held at professors' discretion.    PPL and Millersville University are working on the problem. Dining services reports Upper Deck has Continental style meals and North Side Bistro and Cove have full service. Marauder Express has breakfast sandwiches outside Gordinier.
