Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an automated speaker system for the campus?
The city of Clarksville has an audible siren that can be activated for the inclement weather. If students hear this siren, they should check their cell phone or the university website for important information. For important campus-wide communication, the university utilizes an emergency notification system that contacts students via text message if they have a cell phone number on file with the institution.
