Our thoughts and prayers are with the Ohio State University family after the tragic events of today. On behalf of the entire Texas Tech community, I extend our deepest sympathy to the faculty, staff and students at OSU.
I also want the Texas Tech community to know that we make every effort to keep you safe. Please be vigilant and aware of safety procedures. Do not hesitate to call 911 to report any behavior you consider suspicious.
The university has implemented an Emergency Alert Notification System to communicate important alerts and emergency response information to students, faculty and staff. All faculty, staff and students are automatically enrolled in this system with their eRaider e-mail address and the primary phone number listed in their registration/employment materials. However, it is important to keep your information current. To do so, go to www.ttu.edu/emergencyalert.
Please note some of the safety features that are in place on our campus:
The Office of Communications and Marketing works closely with local media to announce all campus emergency information. The home page, www.ttu.edu, and online Emergency Communications Center will always list the latest emergency information.
