#bsulife As you may know, the Red Sox are in the World Series! If they win tonight (Friday), Saturday night's game would be a potential series-ending game. The same would go for Sunday should they lose tonight or tomorrow night. As a precautionary measure, any night the series could end, Residence Life and Housing in conjunction with the University Police will be closing the Great Hill Student Apartments Parking Lot and the Moakley Parking Lot as of 4pm on each night. ALL vehicles must be moved by 4pm on Saturday and/or Sunday provided it is a series ending game. For the weekend, you may move to the garage or tower lot. Vehicles not moved may be ticketed and/or towed at the owner's expense. As you cheer and celebrate for the Red Sox, please do so responsibly and have fun!

#bsulife This Saturday is National Rx Drug Take Back Day. The Bridgewater State University Police Department is please to announce our participation in the National Rx Drug Take Back Day. It’s a small but important step to take to keep illegal drugs off our streets and out of our neighborhoods. Stop by 200 Great Hill Drive. A disposal bin is located in the lobby, 24/7, no questions, no forms, no hassle.

#bsulife Mandatory Nationwide Test of the Emergency Alert System to be Conducted on October 3, 2018. On Wednesday, October 3, 2018, the federal government will conduct a nationwide test of the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS). The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will begin testing Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) at 2:18 p.m. EDT, and the Emergency Alert System (EAS) at 2:20 p.m. EDT. These tests will assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message and determine whether improvements are required. A WEA test message will be sent to all cell phones that are connected to wireless providers participating in WEA. Cell towers will broadcast the WEA test for approximately 30 minutes beginning at 2:18 p.m. EDT. During this time, WEA compatible cell phones that are on, within range of an active cell tower, and whose wireless provider participates in WEA, should receive the test message. You should only receive one test message. The WEA test message will read, “Presidential Alert - THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” The EAS test will involve radio, television and cable broadcasts, beginning at 2:20 p.m. EDT. You may see or hear a test message on your computer if you are in the midst of streaming content. Further information is available on the FEMA online at www.fema.gov/blog, www.twitter.com/fema, www.twitter.com/femaspox, www.facebook.com/fema, and www.youtube.com/fema. Thank you for your cooperation. Users cannot opt out of a WEA test.
