Georgia Southern University understands and values students’ preferences in receiving information and messages. This includes messages to mobile devices via SMS (short message service) and MMS (multimedia messaging service) - also known as text messaging. This policy covers the use of mass texting by university offices and units to communicate valuable information to prospective and current students, including the university’s responsibility for student confidentiality and privacy. For the purposes of this policy, mass text messages are defined as texts sent to a predetermined group of persons with whom the sender is not in direct, personal contact on a regular basis.
