This is a planned training exercise from 9 a.m.-noon in Twin Towers (Beall and McDowell halls) while classes are out of session. The Department of Public Safety also will test the university’s Mass Notification System and broadcast a “test” message across campus. Again, this is a planned emergency training exercise.
