Yes. During Matriculation (part of Orientation Week), First-Year students will have the opportunity to sign up for General Alerts, our emergency cell and text message system. At that time, students can list up to 4 numbers to receive these alerts.
In the case of violent incidents or public health events, the University uses the General Alerts text messaging system to alert students, faculty, and staff. The University also uses other media to alert the community, including broadcast email alerts, voice mail, website, and a systematic deployment of University personnel who can alert people to a crisis and provide instructions. For more information, please see the Emergency Management Website.
Public Safety officers are on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
