Are you getting your Rave alerts about campus closings, delays, etc.? In addition to the regular Rave alerts, the University has enabled Rave Guardian, an enhanced app of the Rave Mobile Safety System.

Users of the app can designate roommates, family members or trusted friends as a "guardian" when they set a safety timer. The free app can be found by searching for "Rave Guardian" in the app store. For more details.
