Get weather updates via email or cell phone by signing up for e2Campus

The Evergreen State College has recently adopted the e2Campus emergency notification system that enables the school to send urgent news via text-messaging to your cell phone and/or email.

The service is available to all current students, faculty and staff of The Evergreen State College.

Once you sign up for the service, the school can text your cell phone and/or email with timely information about emergencies and school closures (no general or non-urgent messages).  This replaces the prior FlashAlert system, so if you want these notifications, you will need to sign up for e2Campus.

Depending on your personal cell phone plan, there may be a nominal fee from your carrier to receive text messages, but there is no charge from the school to use the service.

To sign up, go to www.evergreen.edu/emergencypreparedness (and see additional directions below to help guide you through the simple registration process).

While the introduction of e2Campus is designed to improve on past emergency communication systems, no single system can guarantee the ability to reach all subscribers in all circumstances.  We are working on further improvements for on-campus communication in case of emergency.  Here are some other resources for information on weather delays and closures.
