Sign up, modify settings for K-State Alerts emergency notification system
Submitted by Division of Communications and Marketing
K-Staters are encouraged to sign up or modify notification settings for K-State Alerts directly on the university's Connect website under the eProfile section. People who have previously signed up for alerts are now signed up for all three campus alerts — Manhattan, Polytechnic and Olathe.
K-State Alerts is the university's primary messaging system for timely emergency notifications. The university uses K-State Alerts when a dangerous condition exists on any of the three campuses, such as an active shooter, tornado, snow day or other dangerous weather that may close campus or to inform about the reopening a campus following a forced closure.
K-Staters can add up to three phone numbers for text notifications and three for voice notifications, so friends and family can stay informed. While the K-State mobile app, K-State Today, K-State Today Student Edition and LiveSafe app also may provide important messages and safety information, K-State Alerts is more immediate.
A test of the K-State Alerts system will be Oct. 12. Please modify these settings to reflect desired campus alerts before the test to ensure the system works properly.
Kansas State University's primary concern is the health and safety of the university community.
