Additional email/calendar options coming this year

~ email is not going away. ~
Later this year, new undergraduate applicants to the university will be assigned Office 365 email accounts (instead of @Rams) when they create their eIDs. At the same time, current @Rams users (including all students) will then have the option to change to Office 365.

Current students, faculty, and staff—who use @Rams now—may continue to do so; the @Rams email service is not being removed. What's more, anyone who doesn't already have an @Rams account (including the new applicants) may still create one, if they would like to add the Gmail experience to their mix of services.

More information will be posted later this summer!
