Weather Alerts

Michigan's seasons bring the potential for severe weather. Spring, summer, and fall have the potential for severe storms and tornadoes. This is a good time to remind everyone where the tornado shelters are located for each of the classrooms and community buildings on our campus. Winter brings the potential for extreme cold, snow and ice as well.

When there is a threat or campus emergency—tornados, violence, hazardous material incidents, college closure, or other emergency—we use the Baker Alert System to notify all current students, faculty, and staff on the campus. 

Baker Alert is an automatic system that sends recorded emergency messages via cell phones, landline phones, e-mail, and text messages to all the contacts listed in the college's official directory (updated via the SOLAR System). Through Baker Alert, we are able to notify the entire campus community in about 20 minutes. 

To be certain that you are notified in an emergency:

  • Review your information in the SOLAR System Directory to be sure it is up-to-date.
  • If you want to be notified by landline, cell phone, and/or text message, be sure the appropriate numbers are included in the Baker Alert database. 

To check and/or change your emergency contact information:

  • Log in to the SOLAR System.
  • Check your emergency contact number(s) and make any changes if necessary. You are the only person who can update this data. Please review it carefully.

Lost and Found is located in the Campus Safety Office.

Found items

If you find an item, please bring it to the Campus Safety office so that it can be claimed by its owner.
