AlertBG opt-out program to change

Coming back from winter break, students with a phone registered with the University will now automatically receive messages from AlertBG.

“AlertBG messages are sent to warn of such situations as crimes in progress, building closures, severe weather and canceled classes,” according to a message sent from the University.

Students previously had the option to receive the messages from AlertBG, but now it’s been changed to where students will get the messages and have to opt out in order to not receive them.

“You can choose to not receive AlertBG text messages by visiting MyBGSU and selecting the AlertBG menu,” the message said.
