Stay informed

In the fall of 2021, the Office of Marketing and Communications led the development of Ohio State News Alerts — an email and text information system to provide timely updates to the university community. Faculty, staff and students can set their preferences to receive these messages via text, email or both. These updates contain information about safety, health, traffic and more. Family, friends and loved ones can also sign up for Ohio State News Alerts.
