PSUTXT Test Complete

photo2We knew it was coming… Penn State Live let us know about it last week and the Collegian reported on it yesterday.

Lisa Powers explained why the PSUTXT emergency alert system was being tested in the Penn State Live article,

The University Park campus did not delay or cancel classes this winter, and no other situations have arisen to impact the campus’ ability to function normally, so we have not sent a PSUTXT message at University Park in quite some time. Because of this, we decided to run this test.

In the screenshot below, you can see the initial confirmation text one gets after signing up for the PSUTXT service and the test message that was sent this morning.

Penn State and the Process of Life

Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
