Rave Emergency Alert System
Welcome to the Bryant & Stratton College Emergency Notification information page. Through a partnership with RAVE Wireless, Bryant & Stratton College is able to provide timely and relevant information to our faculty, staff and students utilizing email, text and voice messaging. From this page we encourage you to login to the Rave Wireless site to confirm your contact information and choose your notification preferences from Bryant & Stratton College. No more waiting for the College's name to scroll across the TV screen when inclement weather hits! Find out right away and be able to plan your day. If an emergency strikes you'll want to know right away and the ENS system provides that to you.
If you want to receive text notifications, you will need to log in to enter or verify your cell phone number and provider. Otherwise, you will be notified of emergency situations only via e-mail. Note that your cellular phone provider may charge a per-text message fee for the delivery of emergency notifications to your phone.
Once you've updated your information remember to tell your friends to sign up too!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Rave Alert?
Bryant & Stratton College has partnered with Rave Mobile Safety to offer an emergency notification system, Rave Alert, capable of sending users text, voice and e-mail messages. You may learn more about Rave Mobile Safety at their corporate site.
What does the Rave service cost?
Rave does not charge students, faculty or staff for sending or receiving messages through this service. However, your carrier's standard messaging and/or data charges may apply. Please consult the details of your mobile phone plan.
What type of messages will I receive?
The College will only send you messages related to critical campus information and emergencies. You will never receive advertisements and your information is never provided to advertisers.
What is my username?
Your username should be your Bryant & Stratton College e-mail address and your password is determined by you. You will receive an initial start-up password from Rave Wireless that you may change online.
I already have contact information in the system. Where did this data come from?
The college pre-populated the Rave Campus Alert system with campus e-mail addresses. In addition, if you provided information to your campus, your data was converted to the Rave system.
What if I did not receive a welcome e-mail?
First, please be assured getrave.com, rave.com and bryantstratton.edu are excluded from any spam filters or block lists in your e-mail client, spam blocking programs or your e-mail service (if you are forwarding e-mail from bryantstratton.edu). If you did not receive a welcome e-mail, you may still login by requesting a password reminder at getrave.com, using your campus e-mail address.
What mobile phone carriers are supported by the alert system?
All U.S. mobile carriers are supported.
What if my cell phone number changes?
If your mobile number ever changes, please login to the getrave.com site to update your contact details.
What if my cell phone provider changes?
You may login to update your carrier on the getrave.com site. If you keep the same mobile number, and simply change cell phone provider, you do not have to change anything. However it may take several weeks for your mobile provider to update the Rave Alert system. During that time it is possible that you will not be able to receive messages unless you login to update your carrier information online.
Will I receive advertisements or text messaging SPAM from Rave Wireless?
No, never. We respect your privacy and you will never receive any messages other than official Bryant & Stratton College communications.
How will I identify incoming messages from Rave Campus Alert?
You will be sent messages from what are known as short codes. The messages will come from either 67283 or 226787. We encourage you to save these numbers into your phone so you will recognize them when messages are sent. Some smaller carriers do not support short-code messaging. For these carriers, you will receive messages from @getrave.com.
I do not want to receive SMS (text) messages on my phone. How do I stop them?
If you have signed up to receive text alerts, you can stop these at any time by sending a text message containing the words STOP or QUIT to 67283 (MRAVE) or 226787 (CAMPUS), or by logging in and updating your profile on the getrave.com site.
Who do I call for assistance?
You may contact the Bryant & Stratton College at your local campus numbers and they will refer you to the proper associates for your issue.
