Savannah State University's Hill Hall

SSU Alert System

The SSU alert system, Blackboard Connect, allows campus administrators to quickly communicate with students, faculty and staff in the event of an urgent situation on campus, such as class cancellations, campus closings, severe weather, evacuation routes or security incidents. This urgent news and information is rapidly delivered via recorded telephone, text and e-mail messages.

The system relies on the contact information provided by students, faculty and staff, therefore all members of the SSU community are urged to keep their information updated in the system to ensure delivery of emergency messages.

Emergency notification from the school will be sent via Blackboard Connect and displayed on the SSU Homepage.
