Penn State gives SMS news to students

Penn State SMS News

Venturing to a class only to find that it was cancelled is a frequent (if bittersweet) occurrence for college and university students - but if Penn State's new text message service thrives, those students with cellphones may save valuable time when weather or other problems affect their schedules. Called PSUTXT, the service launched for the new school year sends phone users SMS text messages about concerts, emergencies, and sports depending on their subscription choices at the PSU Live site. Penn State has been known as a technically adept university for the past several years, offering some of the first e-mail mailing lists and official school podcasts.
