Your Georgia Southern University Google accounts work like regular Google accounts and provide you with access to many more services than before.  These services are governed under their own terms of service, and these terms only apply to the additional services, not your core services (Gmail, Calendar, Chat, Docs), which will continue to operate under the original agreements for Georgia Southern University.

Logging In

You can access additional services from Google Apps link bar.  This bar is located at the top left corner of any Google Apps application page (mail, calendar, docs, etc).  Click on More > then Even More.  On the following page, you will see a list of all Google Services.  Only select services are active, and they are detailed below.

Available Services

We will be enabling and highlighting services in the coming months on a fairly regular basis. Before we enable services to our 30,000 users, we want to ensure that the services work as intended and that there are no bugs or hiccups. Thus, each service is being investigated for its overall impact on the institution.

Please keep in mind that we provide MINIMAL support for these services and that they are not covered under our regular license with Google - they are offered as-is and are entirely optional.
