Emergency communications

Text messaging added to campus emergency notification

Communicating with students, faculty, and staff in a timely manner during an emergency is critical, and the University has enhanced its ability to forewarn the campus. Bradley’s emergency notification system is comprised of a number of communication tools including a telephone hotline (309-677-4000), e-mail messaging, audix messaging, the University Web site, and a new text messaging system. The use of emergency text messaging and the telephone hotline are restricted to immediate life-threatening or potentially life-threatening incidents. Students and employees are being encouraged to sign in and register for emergency text messaging on the Bradley Web site at mybu.bradley.edu. Visit emergency.bradley.edu for additional information on emergency preparedness and campus safety.

Bending it with Beckham

Start with Gavin Glinton ’01, who joined the Major League Soccer’s L.A. Galaxy this season, and you can draw a straight line to David Beckham. The English soccer star who joined the Galaxy this summer, Beckham sparked a frenzy of nationwide media attention leading up to his Galaxy debut on July 21 in a friendly match against English club Chelsea Football Club. Glinton, a four-time MVC soccer all-conference pick, and Beckham played together about 12 minutes against Chelsea. “All the craziness has come from the outside,” Glinton said of the attention. “Inside, we’re trying to build the team and find a unit that works. David seems to fit right in.”
