The new JALCtext system is designed to enhance and improve communication so that all members of the John A. Logan campus community can stay informed in the event of campus events or an emergency. With 90% of college students having mobile phones, this method of communication can increase safety on the John A. Logan College campus. Time-sensitive messages can now go out to parents, students, faculty, and staff wherever they are.
John A. Logan College has contracted with e2Campus to provide the service, which will allow students, faculty, staff and the public to “opt in” to be notified via text message about campus events and an emergency. The message can also be sent to a designated email address, PDA or pager.
- Setup your JALCtext account here. JALCtext will send a text to your phone in case of a college emergency, or campus closure. Even if you don’t have a cell phone, JALCtext can send you emails instead.
- You can manage the types of texts you receive here. Everyone with a JALCtext account will receive texts in the event of an emergency, or campus closure. You can also elect to receive texts pertaining to other college news or events of your choosing.
The system will add another immediate mechanism to the existing methods that the college has in place to alert the community about events and emergencies. The system will be used only for opted-in information and emergency contact purposes. JALCtext will not be used to distribute advertising or other unsolicited (non-opted) content. Please note that subscribers to JALCtext will pay no fees for the service, other than any regular fees associated with text messaging services.
The main emphasis for alerts will be for campus closures, weather related events, emergencies, etc. But signing up for public groups like Athletic Scores, Performance Series Events, Campus Events, Alumni Information, Parent Connection, etc. will allow you to receive other college-related information.
