RacerAlerts and Emergency Weather Information

As winter approaches, the potential for severe or inclement weather increases. MSU has provided information on the three categories of inclement weather-related actions for campus and how those actions are communicated. Weather notifications will be communicated via all-user emails, MSU homepage, WKMS-FM (radio and website), University Facebook account, and the University Twitter account. Once these notifications have been sent, the MSU Police Department will issue a RacerAlert text message to all users who have opted into texting services.

About RacerAlerts: All current students, faculty, and staff who have provided their cell phone contact information through their myGate accounts are already signed up for RacerAlert text messages. To verify or update your primary cell phone number in myGate, follow the myGate Information Change Instructions (PDF). Information on how RacerAlerts work, as well as how parents and community partners can sign up is on the RacerAlerts website.

UNIVERSITY ALERTS: Any additional updates will be made available at
