Bluefield State Emergency Alert System

In an effort to increase safety and security on our campus, B-State encourages everyone to register for an instant text message, email, and/or phone alerts. Alerts will only be used for security, safety, and weather-related notices. All students, faculty, and staff are eligible to receive text message and email alerts. Be certain to re-enroll if you change phone numbers or carriers.
