Faculty & Staff employees receive email accounts after completing their Human Resources paperwork and filling out an e-mail Account Application (available at the Help Desk in Cowan Hall 117B). Employee email accounts have quotas of 250MB.

Bandwidth: what it is, how it affects you and how you affect it when you use file sharing peer-to-peer programs.

Online Communities

Online communities are a popular means of socializing among college students across the U.S. While the intention of these communities is to connect other people, consider safety first before posting personal information online.
