Google mail (Gmail) is the college's email system for contacting students and other college personnel. Any official mail sent to students should be sent to a student's college google mail address. Here is an example of a student's email address for the college: email@example.com.
To access your college email, log into Campus Pipeline and select the Email link. Selecting this link will open your Gmail in a new browser window.
