ENC Alerts – e2Campus Notification System
ENC offers a mass-notification service called e2Campus. This state-of-the-art system is designed to broadcast alerts to the campus community regarding emergencies, weather-related closings/delays as well as other optional campus information. This technology is in use at an increasing number of colleges and universities.
e2Campus will give ENC the ability to quickly send text messages to faculty, staff, residents, students, family and friends via cell phones. Notifications may also be simultaneously broadcast to the ENC web site, RSS, PDA, Email, Text Pager, and Google, AOL or My Yahoo pages. You choose the method that works best to keep you informed!
