Google Apps at Elmira College
All students receive a Google Apps at Elmira College (GAEC) account that includes Gmail, Calendar, Drive (storage), Docs (Web-based word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation programs), and Sites. Gmail is ad-free, provides virtually unlimited storage for archiving messages, attachments, and Drive documents.Google's powerful spam filters significantly reduces spam and junk messages to allow you to more efficiently manage your mail. Your GAEC e-mail address (e.g. email@example.com) belongs to you through and after graduation. Information Technology offers tutorials, workshops, and training sessions to help students maximize their use of Google Apps.
Log on to gmail.com with your @elmira.edu address to access your email and other Google Apps!
One of the benefits of being an Elmira College student is Email For Life. Students will retain their Elmira College email account upon graduating, allowing them access to their Gmail account for life. Information Technology staff does not ask for or provide password and account information via email. It is also important to note that all email sent by Information Technology staff will always contain the name of the person sending the email. If you need assistance, please contact the IT Help Desk.
