RaveAlert is an automated system that Lake Michigan College uses to inform students of important campus information such as weather-related campus closings and campus emergencies. The message can be delivered as a voice message to a landline telephone or cell phone, as a text message to a cell phone, and/or as an email message.

You will automatically be registered for the service at the time of class registration based on telephone and email information you provide to the College.
