How Will You Be Alerted In Case Of An Emergency?

Newberry College strives to communicate vital safety and security information to all members of our campus community as quickly as possible. 



Newberry College has partnered with Rave Mobile Safety to provide the campus community with timely and relevant emergency notifications. Every Newberry College email address is automatically subscribed to the Rave Alert system. Once enrolled, users can customize their contact information to include their mobile number for text notifications and add other contacts, such as a parent or spouse.Full participation in the Rave Alert systems helps us provide a safer, more well-informed campus community.

Register:  Students and College employees are automatically enrolled. If your email was somehow overlooked, you are welcome to enroll at any time. Go to, click "Register" and follow the prompts to create a password and provide enrollment information. We urge all subscribers, when they receive their registration welcome email, to log in to the Rave website to add additional contact information and select other customizations, such as language preference for notifications.



As appropriate, notifications of weather events or other emergency situations will appear on our website and social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. 



As needed during weather events or other emergency situations, we will post brief notifications on our homeage at with a link to more in-depth information on the website.
