Topper Text is the alert system at St. Edward's that allows the university to send emergency information to faculty, staff and students via text messages and email.
Topper Text supplements the university other forms of emergency communication, including the St. Edward's University Hotline (416-8500) and the main university website

Costs of Topper Text
Topper Text is free to St. Edward's students, faculty and staff. But if you choose to receive SMS texts, there may be a small fee, depending on your cellphone plan. Since these plans vary, we suggest checking with your provider about any potential charges.
Opting Out of Topper Text
Staying informed in the event of an on-campus emergency is critical to your safety, so we don't recommend opting out of this service. If you should choose to opt out, however, you can do so by logging in to Rave Wireless
and removing your phone number or email.
