Notice to Graduating Seniors. If you are graduating this semester, please read the information below about your Kent email and network accounts, and your locker. If you have any questions, please let me know. Note: If you are not graduating this semester, you will keep your e-mail account and locker until you graduate.
•Email and Network Accounts - Termination Date Extended to August 9. Email and network accounts for graduating students will be deactivated on Monday, August 9, at 11:59pm (not August 2, as originally announcerd).
If you would like to save your emails, you may download a .pst file of your inbox, following the instructions here. Please note that you must be on campus in order to download your .pst file, as you need access to the Chicago-Kent server for the download. Moreover, please be sure to have a flash drive or recordable CD on which to save your emails, as the files are generally too large to send by email. It is your responsibility to make a backup of your emails to a .pst file. If you have questions, please contact the Center for Law and Computers at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-906-5300.
As a Chicago-Kent graduate, the Alumni Association is pleased to offer an e-mail forwarding service using an @alumni.kentlaw.edu email address. This service is available through the Alumni Online Community at www.alumni.kentlaw.edu and allows you to choose a email@example.com address that will be forwarded to your specified personal email account (e.g. gmail, yahoo, or work e-mail, etc). Your username can be your current kentlaw.edu username or you can create a new one.
The advantage of the e-mail forwarding is that once you give your forwarding address to friends and colleagues, you’ll no longer have to notify everyone in your address book of a new or discontinued e-mail address; you can simply update the email account to which the email forwarding address sends to by logging into the Alumni Online Community. Please note that any emails sent to your current @kentlaw.edu address DO NOT automatically get sent to your alumni forwarding address. You must notify your contacts of your new address.
In order to access e-mail forwarding, you must sign up for the Chicago-Kent Alumni Online Community, which, in addition to email forwarding, allows you to update your alumni information, search the alumni directory, join groups, network with fellow alumni, and keep up-to-date with all the news and events at Chicago-Kent. Accounts for May 2010 graduates will be available by mid-July. Click here to sign up now and we will send you your login information when you have access!
For questions or concerns, please contact the Chicago-Kent Alumni Association at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-906-5240.
•Clearing Out Lockers. Please clear your lockers out no later than Friday, July 30. Anything left in lockers after that date will be removed. If you are unable to clear your locker out by that date, please contact me to make arrangements for your locker contents to be set aside for you. Note: This applies only to graduating students. If you are not graduating, you do not need to clear your locker out; you will keep your current locker until you graduate.
