In May 2011, the College implemented the Rave Alert System in response to federal laws requiring all colleges and universities to implement early alert systems to use when emergencies arise that threaten the safety and security of the institution, its facilities, students, faculty, and staff. Federal laws require the College to be able to notify and warn our students, faculty, and staff in a timely and rapid manner.
The Rave Alert System allows the College to make this notification. Upon activation, the Rave Alert System will send voice messages to registered office and cellular phones; text messages to registered cellular phones; and emails to registered email addresses. While our intention is to comply with federal laws, much more importantly, we want to provide the safest possible environment for students, faculty, and staff.

In order to maximize the efficiency of the emergency notification system, your information must be updated at the beginning of every semester to ensure that we have the most accurate contact information available. Our security staff has already updated the system list with email addresses for both new and returning students, faculty, and staff. But everyone must review their information in the system and designate their primary means of notification: text, email, or voice message. Once complete, the system will verify the internal data by sending an email to the primary email address.
