Patrick Bigelow, 44, an escapee out of Fayette County, ditched a stolen suburban in the college's Bryan parking lot.
The community college did not send students a warning Monday afternoon, because according to officials, there was no immediate danger.
However, Tuesday, Blinn officials said they are looking into companies that provide notifications, in case of an emergency.
"This is our most recent attempt to determine what companies are offering what services," Gena Parsons with Blinn College said. "We would like and have text messaging, and we would like to have an email system set up so that we can issue these alerts more effectively and efficiently. We just have to find out what's out there and what kind of costs and maintenance would be involved."
Blinn has told News Three in the past that cost prohibited the college from initiating a notification system.
The college is also looking into how its police department can be better connected by radio with Bryan police.
