Google Apps coming to UA!

What is Google Apps at Akron?

The University of Akron is partnering with Google to provide a set of Google online services especially for UA students, with a single signon from the UA web site and a new lifetime @zips.uakron.edu email address. The Gmail service is replacing the current student webmail system. Also included in the package are Google calendar, chat and document editing and collaboration tools. The Google Apps services will be ad-free for current students.
