Ringling College and the Office of Public Safety make every effort to ensure that the Ringling College students, faculty, and staff are aware of weather warnings and emergencies as they are issued. In the event of a campus emergency, Ringling College has established a multi-phased emergency notification system to alert the campus community in a matter of seconds through cell phone, text message, landline, voicemail, and email.
An alert is issued when a situation arises in which the College determines that there is an ongoing threat, whether manmade or weather-related, that presents an immediate threat to the health and safety of people on campus. The system is tested twice a year.
Signing up for alerts
All students and employees with a valid Ringling College email address are automatically added to the distribution list for alerts when they join the College. Registered individuals will automatically receive an email each time an alert is sent out. The alerts are also shared via:
- Voice messages to home phones, work phones, cell phones, and email addresses
- Text messages to cell phones, PDAs, networked digital signage, and other devices
- Text messages to SMS accounts
Individuals who need a message sent to a TTY device should contact Robert Graham in the Office of Public Safety.
Maintaining accurate contact information
To confirm that your account information is correct:
- Students should email the Office of Student Life.
- Employees should email the Office of Human Resources.
If you feel that you did not receive a message because of a technical issue, contact the Office of Admissions.
