MSU Alert:

MSU ALERT is an emergency notification system that gives Midwestern State University the ability to send urgent and emergency information within seconds by campus email, phone SMS, campus desktop, social media, and MSUSafety push notification. MSU Alert is a free service to all MSU students, faculty, and staff. 

As an MSU student, faculty, or staff member you are automatically enrolled in the MSU ALERT notification system. Texas law requires that the University automatically enroll all students, faculty, and staff.

MSU ALERT is powered by e2Campus OMNILERT - a national mass notification solutions provider. The contact information you provide to the MSU ALERT service will only be used for delivering emergency information through e2Campus. E2Campus also has strict "ZeroSpam" and usage policies to protect subscribers.
