SMS Opt In


With the new Opt In text service; parents, visitors, and other community members who do not have a PFW log in ID will now be able to receive text message notifications from our Rave Text Alert System. The messages can be set up for 1 or 16 weeks and is completely user based. Parents, visitors, and other community members can now receive the same emergency alerts the students, faculty, and staff receive on campus. 

Please note that this service is for those who do not have a PFW log in. Those who do have a PFW log in please sign up for emergency alerts in your goPFW account. 

Users sign up by texting PurdueFWAlert1 or PurdueFWAlert16 to CAMPUS (226787) and you'll get a text alert whenever there is an emergency alert for either the next 1 or the next 16 weeks. You will get an automatic notification when your subscription is up and you can choose to continue to receive text alerts or you can opt out.
