COLUMBIA, Mo. ­— At 2:50 p.m., Thursday, April 22, University of Missouri students, faculty and staff who have registered their cell phone numbers with the University’s mass notification system will receive a test text message. The text message is part of a regular test of the system by University officials.

The message will read:

“This is a test of the MU Alert Notification System on April 22, 2010. This is only a test.”

Cell phone users will be asked to acknowledge receipt of the message. University officials expect to test the system at least once each semester.
