How will I identify incoming messages from Campus Alert?
You will be sent messages from what are know as short codes. The messages will come from either 67283 or 226787. We encourage you to save these numbers into your phone so you will recognize them when messages are sent. Some smaller carriers do not support short code messaging. For these carriers, you will receive messages from @getrave.com.
How do I stop getting messages?
To stop getting message, you may login to the getrave.com site and remove your number, or text the word, "STOP" to 67283.
