Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What exactly is Wells Emergency Alert and Omnilert?
A: Wells College has partnered with Omnilert (formerly known as e2Campus), a universal notification system that allows designated administrators to send time-sensitive messages to the mobile phones, email, and/or pagers of subscribers (students, faculty, staff and others). In the event of an emergency, subscribers can get notified immediately of the situation, wherever they are geographically.

Q: How do I sign up for Wells Emergency Alert messages?
A: If you are a current Wells student, faculty, or staff member you can create an account at the Omnilert website.

Q: What is a universal notification system?
A: A universal notification system is defined as a platform to deliver a notification to an entire audience by all means necessary; therefore creating universal coverage to increase the odds that a particular subscriber received the notification in a timely manner.

Q: What is a notification?
A: A notification is defined as a form of communication that delivers descriptive information about news or an event, unlike a bell or siren that communicates little information.

Q: I'm a parent or guardian. How do I sign up for this service?
A: Your Wells student can add your cell phone number (SMS) and/or email address to their account after signing up. Parents do not have the ability to create a separate account on the system.

Q: Do I need to install software and/or hardware in order to receive Wells Emergency Alerts?
A: NO. Wells Express Alert is an entirely web-based  system, so you do not need any additional software or hardware. All you need is a web browser with an Internet connection and you are up and running! 

Q: How do I opt out from receiving Wells Emergency Alert messages?
A: Please log into your account to opt out for Wells Express Alert. You may choose to opt out of one particular group, or the entire service.

Q: Will any person receive unsolicited messages ("spam") on their mobile phone?
A: NO. Wells Emergency Alert and Omnilert enforce a zero-spam policy which clearly prohibits unsolicited messages, and Omnilert does not sell the contact information of our subscribers to third-party marketers.

Our mission is for every student to think critically, reason wisely and act humanely as they cultivate meaningful lives. On our beautiful lakeside campus, students gain the knowledge, skills and experience to create their own unique path.
