General Alerts System

General Alerts is a notification system that allows Washington and Lee to notify community members of emergencies or other timely information that affects the campus. This system sends text messages to registered mobile devices and email messages to valid email accounts.

General Alerts' messages will provide instructions for taking action if needed. Additionally, information will be posted on the University's website (wlu.edu), the official Twitter account (@wlunews), and the Washington and Lee Facebook page.

When an emergency occurs, authorized senders will instantly notify subscribers to General Alerts, which is a service offered at no charge to users. Wireless carrier's message and data rates may apply for messages received on your wireless device.
