Contacting Students

If an off-campus caller fails to get in touch with a student through normal channels, they may call Student Life at 270-852-3285 (8-5, M-F). After 5 pm weekdays and on weekends, please call campus security at 270-929-8609 and ask to speak to someone in Student Life. During an emergency it is best to limit use of telephones as overuse can result in overloaded circuits adding to the difficulty.
