During emergencies, the University alerts students, staff, and faculty via the Lindenwood Instant Message System provided by Rave. This important service enables quick mass communication in the event of school closings or campus crises. Students are prompted by email when they enroll in classes to enter their mobile phone numbers into the system. The service is free to users.
When it is necessary to cancel classes, announcements will be posted on the Lindenwood University website and communicated to designated local television and radio stations (including LUTV and KCLC 89.1 FM). The Lindenwood Instant Message System provided by Rave will be used to announce cancellations and other notifications as needed.
You can sign up for RAVE alerts through your student portal under Student Services - Emergency Text Messaging. Simply enter your cell phone number and update. (Please note: it may take up to 24-48 hours for your cell phone number to be updated.)
