Closings & Alerts

In addition to our Web site, social media and local media outlets, our Emergency Alert Notification System is the best way to stay informed when it comes to emergency and weather-related situations.

  • Emergency Alerts:  The Office of Information Services has implemented a web-based solution that allows communications across various social and mobile technologies including email, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and text messaging.  The College uses this system for the purpose of passing along information of a time sensitive nature.
  • Weather-Related Closings:  The forecast changes like the weather, but you can be assured that we take your safety seriously when bad weather strikes. In the event of inclement weather, we will use the Emergency Alter Notification System to keep you up to date on any weather related closings or cancellations.
