Main Campus Students: Our New Emergency Notification System is Called InformaCast!
With InformaCast, the University will continue to send mass notification broadcasts that reach everyone with critical information through on-campus phones, personal cell phones as well as other devices like digital signage on campus. This new system also offers a means of personal protection via a panic button in the InformaCast mobile app.
Main Campus students will be able to request assistance when they are in need of help directly from their mobile phones, and Post University Campus Safety will be able to see who is requesting help and their location. This functionality is similar to the Emergency Blue Light Phones located throughout our Country Club campus.
Pressing the mobile panic button provides an immediate way for individuals to signal for help when they find themselves in a dangerous situation. Once activated, the user will receive instructions and be able to connect with safety teams via a phone call directly from the app to receive further assistance. Campus Safety will be notified that someone has activated the button and be able to see a user’s locations through the app. They will also be able to send follow-up messages to the user. The event is tracked so information can be relayed to first responders so they know where to go and what kind of situation they’re walking into.
Weekly Wellness Corner
The Weekly Wellness Corner is brought to you by the Counseling Center – here, you’ll find content, tips, tricks, programs, and resources to help you thrive as a Post Eagle!
Let’s talk about the importance of sleep hygiene!
Did you know? Poor sleep affects mental health by disrupting our circadian rhythms and interfering with our normal sleep stages, thereby throwing our bodies and our brains off kilter. A sleep-deficient brain has a decreased ability to make emotional judgments and incorporate multiple pieces of information into a decision.
Sleep is sacred and should not be forced, especially for our post students and faculty. Creating your own sleep routine, whether that is drinking tea, reading a book, or journaling; will help prepare you for a restful night’s rest!
BIG REMINDER: Your bed should only be associated with sleep, so refrain from working or staring at your device for too long before getting your sleep.

The Student-Athlete Mental Wellness Team: People Taking Care of
Our Students and Teams
Student-athletes are busy people. Attending practices and games, going to school, and keeping up a social life is a lot for one person. And according to two NCAA student-athlete well-being studies, mental health issues remain on the minds of student-athletes.
Through Post University’s Counseling Center, several resources are available to meet the needs of the student-athletes to help them remain healthy and well. Read more about the people and programs supporting those efforts on the University’s blog.
Scholarships* are a great way to supplement
your educational financial plan!
Scholarships are Important!
Scholarships provide an opportunity for students to earn an education with assistance from an outside source.
Scholarships can fill the gap. Scholarships can help decrease the amount of loans needed to complete college.
Points to Remember:
Be sure to review the general eligibility requirements, and the application instructions and deadline dates before submitting the application.
*Scholarship opportunities are available for those who qualify.
