Penn State students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to enroll in PSUTXT, a one-way communications tool designed to get emergency information to subscribers. PSUTXT lets you know via cell phone when classes are canceled due to weather conditions or if the campus has an emergency closure or other schedule alteration. Sign up now for PSUTXT and, when necessary, Penn State will send a text message alert directly to your cell phone. The system is used in conjunction with Penn State Newswires and the Penn State Live Web site. Subscription to PSUTXT is free, although individual cell phone carriers may charge for text messaging.
For information, contact Annemarie Mountz at AMountz@psu.edu and include PSUTXT in the subject line.
