REMIND Class Specific Notifications

REMIND General Notifications from Dr Richardson

Notifications via REMIND

I will occasionally be sending out messages via the REMIND system.

Text @ue-engr390 to 81010 to subscribe to course specific messages.

Text @ue-rich to 81010 to subscribe to more general messages from Dr Richardson (change in office hours, class cancellations, etc)

If you would rather receive REMIND messages by email then send an email to:

ue-engr390@mail.remind.com and/or ue-rich@mail.remind.com

The email subject and body can be blank.

You can also subscribe for both texts and email notifications. You can unsubscribe at any time. Standard text messaging charges may apply.
