PSU adopts official e-mail for student communication

October 14, 2009 12:00AM

To improve consistency of official university communication with students, as well as to provide them with state-of-the-art e-mail and office productivity tools, the university is partnering with Google to provide "Pitt State Apps powered by Google." All students enrolling for the 2010 spring semester will need to create this new email account before they enroll.  Early enrollment begins on Monday, Nov. 9th.

The new system will offer students a number of advantages, according to Bill Ivy, dean of enrollment management and student success.  Not only will storage increase dramatically, students will also have access to powerful calendar and Google Docs applications. An added benefit for students is that they will be able to keep their Gus Mail e-mail accounts after they graduate.

Students may sign up for the new account at any time by logging on to the GUS system on the PSU Web site. Sign up takes about two minutes.   Students who create their accounts by Nov. 1st will be entered into a drawing for prizes including Barnes and Noble gift cards, Sodexho gift cards and a Commerce Bank savings bond.

Students with questions may learn more about the new Pitt State Apps powered by Google by visiting the following Web site: www.pittstate.edu/gusmail or by calling Gorilla Geeks at 235-4600.
