Jinwon Chang’s Art Installation opens at the Dennos Museum Center

Emergency alert testing happens the first Monday of each month

NMC sends a test message for our emergency alerts system on the first Monday of each month. This message will be broadcast to all office/classroom/etc phones on campus, and a call will be placed to these phones. In addition, the message goes out to those who are enrolled in the alert messaging via email, text message and a call placed to your preferred phone number. You are automatically opted in to the system, so if you want to opt out you must do so here: nmc.edu/text. We strongly encourage you however, to be signed up for these alerts. They are of vital importance should an emergency occur on campus. It is also the system through which we announce school cancellations and delays (along with radio and TV tickers as well.)
