In the event of an emergency, Hollins University has instituted a multitude of systems to communicate with student, faculty, staff and parents. Communications include the following systems:
omnilert is a mass notification system that can alert members of the Hollins community with text messages on their cell phones, desktop alerts on their computers, e-mail message, voice messages on their phones, Facebook, Twitter, etc. With more than 90% of college students having cell phones, this method of communication increases awareness within the Hollins community. Time-sensitive messages can be delivered immediately. In the event of a campus emergency or a school closing due to inclement weather, an alert message is sent out to any text-capable device such as a mobile phone, Blackberry, telephone or an e-mail address a user has registered with the system. The choice is yours and you can enter multiple addresses. Parents are welcome to sign up for these messages as well.
