While you will not be able to opt-out of mandatory communications (e.g. University emergencies, closings, etc.), you will have the opportunity to opt-out of the 17 “general announcement” categories. This means you can opt out of getting email as well as the message board.

Go to https://messagecenter.rit.edu/messageBoard and log in.
