Skidmore Urgent Notification System

(SUNS, also known as e2Campus)

The Skidmore Urgent Notification System (SUNS) is the college's emergency alert/urgent notification system, which uses e2Campus software (an award-winning provider of emergency communication). SUNS is composed of the following methods by which notification or timely warnings can be communicated to the Skidmore community in the event of an emergency:

  • Outdoor siren/PA system (located atop the library) will be activated to alert campus community members who are out-of-doors on campus of an imminent danger or emergency and to take notice of their immediate surroundings, which may require seeking shelter or evacuation of the area.
  • e2Campus communications: Mass urgent notification/alerts to enrolled email, voicemail, SMS/text message, the Skidmore College homepageFacebook and Twitter accounts. Note: Information entered into e2campus will not be given or or sold to a third party.
  • Students are automatically enrolled in e2campus based on their registration information. 
  • Faculty and staff should self-enrollin e2campus using the "Create My SUNS Account" so they can receive emergency alerts and information of an emergency situation or incident.
