Text Message Alerts

Fontbonne University is providing a text message alert service to all students, faculty and staff. In the event of an emergency, or other situation where it’s important to reach the campus community — such as a weather closure — the school will issue a text message alert explaining the situation.

Participation in this service is voluntary; however, we strongly urge everyone to sign up. Currently, this service will only be used for emergency purposes. You will not be bombarded with routine announcements. In the future, the option to receive other “types” of messages (perhaps reminders of academic deadlines) may be offered.

How do I sign up?

It’s easy – just go to the Rave site and complete your registration!The entire process should take no longer than ten minutes to complete.

What if I need help?

If you have any questions about the text message service, email Information Technology at askit@fontbonne.edu or call (314) 719-8095.

Can I add any phone numbers to my text alert service?

Fontbonne Text Alert System – Adding Additional Phone #s

 While the text alert service is reserved for students, faculty and staff (because it requires a current Fontbonne email address for sign-up), it is possible for you to ADD two more telephone numbers to your text alert account. Follow these instructions.

  1. You must already have a text alert account. Note: “Registration Email” will be your full Fontbonne email address.
  2. If you have signed up for text alerts already, log into your RAVE (text service) account. Username will be your full Fontbonne email address.
  3. Once logged in, you should click on your NAME in the upper right corner.
  4. Under Mobile Phones, click on the + sign in the green circle that says “Add”
  5. Enter the 10-digit mobile number of the person you wish to add.
  6. Hit the black “Continue” button.
  7. Hit the black “Continue” button on this screen, too.
  8. Hit the black “Done” button.
  9. Add 67283 or 226787 to your contacts as ‘Fontbonne University’.
