Penn State Begins Transition From PSUTXT to PSUAlert
Penn State began sending e-mails on Wednesday to notify of the upcoming transition from PSUTXT to PSUAlert, a system for which only Penn State students, faculty, and staff may sign up.
If you have a psu.edu e-mail address, you’re going to receive this e-mail, and you have to sign up to get free PSUAlerts regardless of whether you had signed up with PSUTXT. According to the press release, PSUAlert will feature “enhanced messaging capabilities,” the addition of phone-based voice alerts, and “more robust integration” with Twitter and Facebook. The change is going to happen at all Penn State campuses except Penn College.
Don’t worry, family members, you can still receive the alerts, but your psu.edu-addressed significant other will have to sign you up. Each student, faculty and staff member can have three text numbers, phone numbers and e-mail addresses, including their own, signed up.
A handy Q&A about PSUAlert, in which it’s said you can’t use PSUAlert as an excuse to sit on your phone in class, can be found here.
