Text Messages Are the New Emails

Written by

Columbia—in what the administration says are efforts to “ensure redundancy across our communications channels” (swear to God)—has launched the Text Message Enrollment program, in which the University will be sending out important messages to students who register their mobile numbers with SSOL.  

The email introducing the Text Message Enrollment program cites “the portability and ubiquity” of cell phones as contributing factors that eventually won over the hearts of tech-savvy bureaucrats.   

Weather emergencies and major transit interruptions are possible instances in which registered students would receive a text message.
