"Campus safety is a high priority for us, so we needed a mass notification solution to successfully handle emergency situations and daily communications," said the Chief of Public Safety for Bob Jones University, Joe Mulnix. "We want to do everything possible to provide an environment where all feel safe and are aware of important news and events. After researching options, we selected Rave Alert as its design and features enable our public safety team to communicate easily and cost-effectively with our faculty, staff and students."
