Emergency Communications System Test, 10/15

To promote campus safety and insure Clery Act compliance during a real emergency, P3 will test the University’s emergency communication system between 9:45 and 10:35 on Monday, October 15. Students and employees need take no action! These mechanisms will be used: Big Voice, the Visiplex system in Dooling Hall (blue strobes, speakers and sign boards), e2Campus (SMS, ALERTUS, email, and social media), the DSU Homepage and Portal, and Channel 7 TV. We will attempt to modulate Big Voice’s volume, nonetheless, we ask for your patience during this important exercise. And, please, assure your visitors that we are only testing the system.

Need Fingerprints? Weekdays during business hours

As part of preparation for accreditation the University Police have installed a fingerprint station at Father Lawless Center. This enables officers to accurately capture a primary characteristic of identification. One benefit to the University community is that anyone needing professionally prepared fingerprint cards for job applications, background checks, and other processes can now have their fingerprinting conveniently done here on campus free of charge. Fingerprinting is done Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
