With snow days at MSU and continuous winter weather warnings, being informed about what’s happening at MSU is essential. MSU Alert notifies recipients through email, text messages or phone calls of emergency happenings at MSU, including tornadoes, terrorism, winter weather-related activities and other potentially hazardous situations.
The MSU Alert system is controlled by the MSU Police Department and powered by Blackboard Connect-Ed. The system is stationed off-campus to maintain availability in the case of power outages and is only used for emergency news broadcasting.
By visiting alert.msu.edu, members of the MSU community can sign up for alerts via text message, email or phone message. During severe weather conditions, notifications will also be posted on the alert.msu.edu website.
According to the alert.msu.edu website, if you receive an alert message you should: follow the instructions contained within the message and spread the word about the alert.
