First Year Student Mailing Spring 2013

Dear First Year Gustavus Student,

Gustavus Technology Services would like to welcome you to Gustavus!

It is our hope that this message will answer many of your technology related questions and provide you with the resources necessary to find answers to other technology questions you might have.

Gustavus Technology Services is the central organization responsible for most of the technology delivery and support at Gustavus. For students the Technology Helpline is the primary point of contact for all technology related questions, problems and concerns. The Helpline consists of a phone support center (507-933-6111) and web based help center (Helpline WebSite) available 7 days and over 80 hours a week.

All Gustavus students are granted a user account. This account includes a Gustavus email address, network storage space (home directory), Google Calendar and Documents, web publishing space and authenticated access to many online Gustavus resources. We would like to invite you to begin using this account now.
