York Undergrad Email is going Google !

UIT Initiative: To improve the email and calendar services provided to students, York University is replacing its current student email system with a Google web-based service. UIT consulted students and thoroughly evaluated a range of service providers. When they conducted a pilot project to gather student opinions, a clear preference for Google's email and collaboration tools emerged.
