Sign Up for Text Alerts
In order to ensure that students receive timely notification of emergency information, VI provides students the option to sign up for text alerts. These alerts may include, but are not limited to, classes canceled due to weather, national emergencies, or even crisis situations on campus. We conduct regular test of this system throughout the year.
The ability to receive VI text messages is open to any VI Faculty, Staff or Student. This is an opt in/opt out service so if you do not register, you will not be able to get messages. Students MAY have to re-register each year as the system is generally cleaned out in July to eliminate duplication of records. To sign up please follow these simple instructions:
You will notice that there is a group for parents. Please feel free to forward this to your parents and have them register under the parents group, if they so desire.
The text messaging system is an additional/secondary means of communication, our first means of communication is via campus email.
