Email at Georgia Southern


Georgia Southern University utilizes Google Apps for Student, Faculty, Staff and Department email. Google Apps is a suite of web-based messaging and collaboration applications that Google hosts on their own servers. Google provides these applications as a "service," rather than as software to download and install. To access these applications, you simply use a web browser on a computer that is connected to the Internet.
