BCC Now Offers Emergency Text Service

February 26, 2013 by admin


By Miranda Bonamo
   Due to catastrophic events such as Hurricane Sandy, Brookdale Community College offers an emergency text message service free to not only students and faculty members, but parents as well.
     The emergency text service provides texts announcing Brookdale closings, re-openings, and delays. The service is accessible directly through the Brookdale website and creates a fast and easy way to stay up-to-date on the latest inclement weather announcements.
     “The emergency text system is great. During the snowstorm after Sandy, I didn’t have to wake up at six for my early classes,” said 21-year-old Chris Ceglecki, a journalism major from Freehold. 
     “I haven’t signed up for it yet, but I was about to. I don’t wanna show up to school like an idiot if it’s closed,” said 19-year-old Robyn Karabin, a journalism major from Wall.
     At any time, anyone wishing to opt-in to this service may choose to do so by clicking the link on the Brookdale homepage. With this service, there’s no need to be left in the dark about any school closings or delays.
