Emergency notification system/e2Campus problems?

The Public Safety, Security and Health Directorate thanks all of you for your cooperation and good spirit in preparing for, and dealing with Hurricane Irene. Fortunately we did not experience the storm as advertized.

I have heard and read complaints that some of you did not receive any e2Campus messages. Three were sent out this semester:

  • 08/23/2011 at 14:09:20 (OK to enter buildings after earthquake)
  • 08/28/2011 at 01:16:29 (storm warning: please go inside)
  • 08/29/2011 at 12:17:19 (damage assessment: call DSUPD)

If you received text but not email: check and see if the messages are trapped in your junk mail folder or your Postini spam folder. If they are you should mark the messages as coming from a safe sender [DEMO e2campus@omnilert.net].If you do not find the messages then call PS Officer Barb Lotte at X1250 so she can check the status of your e2Campus account.

For any other problem (email but no text, you signed up but aren’t getting anything, etc.) call PS Officer Barb Lotte at X1250 so she can check the status of your e2Campus account.

“Business Matters” newsletter

The summer issue of the Business Matters newsletter will give you an inside look at how busy things have become here at DeSales University. The Business Division worked hard to put together several successful programs such as Export University, the second Fleming Ethics Bowl, and added new academic programs such as the BS/MBA in accounting and the human resources management concentration in the MBA Program. We hope you enjoy reading the Business Matters articles and wish you a great fall semester.

Traffic change advisory

The traffic circle on DeSales Drive in the area of Trexler Library is now controlled by a three-way stop. Previously, the circle was controlled by only one stop sign. Two additional stop signs were added to enhance the safety of pedestrians and vehicular traffic in the area. Under state law, motorists are required to come to a complete stop at the intersection, which is designated with a white line. DSUPD will monitor the area for compliance.
