RAVE Guardian - Stay Connected, Stay Safe

In an ongoing effort to maintain a safe and secure campus environment, Idaho State University has added a new mobile safety app for the campus community.

The free mobile app is available on all four of the University's campuses: Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Meridian, and Twin Falls.

The app allows users to set a safety timer to notify designated guardians if they are alone or in an unfamiliar location.

In addition, the emergency call button can send a notification to Public Safety with one click, providing the user's information and GPS location. Users can also send text or photo content directly to University officials if they witness something suspicious on campus.

The ISU app is available for download on both iOS and Android devices.
