“We have had the privilege of using the CampusCast emergency notification system since 2008. It is an affordable and highly effective tool for getting out emergency or non-emergency notifications. The on-site training for the system was great as well as the prompt attention to service. We have used the system on several occasions to inform students of school closings due to bad weather. I highly recommend CampusCast to other community colleges and schools. The ease of use and speedy response time for communicating messages to our students is wonderful.”
