Leopard Alerts are only sent in the event of a weather emergency, or an emergency on or close to campus. Lafayette College uses Leopard Alerts to quickly notify students, employees, and registered parents and neighbors.
The Leopard Alerts system will be changing Tues., Aug. 1 and will now rely on the number you provide in Banner. Anyone who has entered a cellphone number in Banner will receive a subscription notification Aug. 1 stating, “You are now subscribed for emergency alerts from Lafayette College. Reply OPTOUT to stop all alerts.”
It is strongly recommended that you still add a cellphone into Banner regardless of the option you choose to keep you informed and help ensure your safety and the safety of others on campus in the event of an emergency.
Leopard Alerts will use the cellphone stored in Banner instead of requiring employees/students to sign up.
Alerts also will be sent to desktop phones starting Aug. 1.
If you do not wish to receive text alerts in the event of an emergency, you can reply to the Aug. 1 confirmation message. It is strongly recommended that you still add a cellphone into Banner regardless of the option you choose to keep you informed and help ensure your safety and others on campus in the event of an emergency.
Alerts will still be sent through email. Employees also will receive alerts through their college-issued computers and desktop phones assigned to their use. A campus siren can be used in emergencies.
If you don’t receive a message it means the College doesn’t have your correct cellphone, and you’ll need to verify it in Banner. If your number is correct in Banner and you still did not receive a text message Aug. 1, please contact the Help Desk.
