Lindenwood Enhancing Emergency Text Messaging

November 17, 2008

On Friday, November 14, every Lindenwood student, faculty member and staff member was sent an e-mail from Lindenwood’s new emergency text message provider, Rave Wireless, Inc., with instructions on how to properly register for emergency alerts.

The system allows the university to send text messages and e-mails to all registered mobile phones alerting them about emergencies matters such as weather-related class cancellations. The service is free to students, although text messaging rates from their mobile service providers would apply.

The system will not be used for anything other than emergency text message alerts and for occasional testing each semester. All students are registered for email through their Lionmail account, however, only about half those registered have cell phone numbers listed. Please sign into the Rave system with the information provided in your email, and make sure you phone number is listed properly. You may also register additional email accounts or telephone numbers.

Lindenwood has been using a text messaging service since 2007 to enhance communications capabilities with students. The Rave system offers rapid message delivery times and an impressive reliability record.

“I encourage all of our students, faculty and staff to participate in the system,” said Dr. James D. Evans, president of Lindenwood University. “This is an important part of our overall effort to ensure the safety of everyone on our campus.”
