Tuesday, November 13, 2012 - University statement on text alert test
During a regularly scheduled test of Oakland University's emergency communications procedures today, a message announcing a test of the emergency text system was sent to registered users by text. Unfortunately, an incorrect message was sent to cell phones of campus community members after the correct message was sent via text. 

Within minutes of learning about this error, university officials acted to correct the voicemail message by sending a corrected text, a campus-wide e-mail, reissuing a voicemail message, posting a story to the university web site, and correcting the message through social media networks. University officials regret the error and any confusion and inconvenience it may have caused, and are working to ensure this mistake does not happen again.
