Campus Notification System test set for March 26

A test of the Campus Notification System will be conducted at 10 a.m., Tuesday, March 26.

This test will include the activation of the speaker arrays around the New College campus and the Blackboard connect system, which disseminates messages via email, phone, and text through various mechanisms around campus.

Most of you should receive test messages at the email and phone number(s) that were provided to us. If you’re on or near campus, you’ll also hear the exterior speaker test.

All New College students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to visit the NCFSafe emergency notification website to make sure your information is listed correctly. The phone numbers and email addresses you have listed in NCFSafe should be the numbers by which we can notify YOU of a campus emergency, not your family members. NCFSafe can be found in NewCLEIS by clicking here.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this brief interruption, which should last just a few minutes. The time of these tests have been changed so more of the community will be involved. New College and Campus Police feel safety and security matters are very important to our community.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Campus Police at 941-487-4210.
