    ISU Alert System has actually been used

    My phone started going off at 4:30 this morning. This is the first time in my 5 years here where the alert system has been used for something other then a test or weather related event.

    It's a good thing that it is rarely needed to be used.

    Re: ISU Alert System has actually been used

    When I was woke up got me thinking of the thousands of ISU students who have an extra early wake up call today. I'm sure the 7:30 finals folks were pretty pumped!

    Hope they catch the guy. Seems like the perfect job for a canine unit to run him out.

    University of Iowa uses their system about once a month. And it's for a lot worse stuff than a someone missing check-in time.

    At South Carolina I believe we used it like 3 times in a week this semester and two of the instances were armed robbery with the 3rd being a rape. Consider yourself lucky.

    Find it very humerous that people like you want to complain about something that is being used to keep people safe and alerted.
