In the event of a campus-wide emergency, Union College has a comprehensive communication system—Union Alert—in place to send emergency text messages to faculty, staff, and students. This system will only be used for emergency communications.  

Getting Information 

During an emergency, Union Alert will distribute information to the campus community via:

  • Audio–Tornado siren and PA system
  • Text messages–Union Alert text messages to registered users. Students register through Self-Service (instructions here).
  • TV–Television screens around campus
  • People–Resident assistants and area coordinators



Emergency drill tests campus readiness

Until recent years, preparing for an emergency on Union College’s campus meant making sure everybody could find the tornado shelter in each building and the best exit in case of fire. But as more violence happens on educational campuses across the country each year—even Adventist campuses, no school can continue to ignore the threat of violence against students or employees.
