Sign Up for Emergency Alerts

The Emory & Henry College Campus Alert System allows students, parents, faculty and staff to receive updates and campus-wide alerts on their cell phones (smart and basic, via TXT Messaging), by email, or both. The system is used in the event of an emergency or school delays/closing due to severe weather. It’s a vital communication tool the college uses to keep the campus community notified of high-priority information—be sure you’re in-the-know by signing up today.

Reminders:

  • SLEDDING:
      Sledding on campus ​is not recommended.  It is not allowed on the hill behind McGlothlin-Street Hall parking lot or in the construction area.  For safety reasons, the building of moguls and/or ramps is also not allowed.  If you decide to sled on campus, you do so at your own risk.  Stay safe!
  • COLD WEATHER:
     Please note that the weather forecast is calling for snow, possible ice, and extreme low temperatures.  Limit time spent outdoors to avoid cold related injuries and use caution when walking outside or traveling.
  • POWER FAILURE:
    In the event that we lose power, residential students can access McGlothlin-Street Hall where we have a backup generator.  Emergency information will be shared in the event this occurs.  RAs can also serve as a point of contact in the event we lose power.
