Rising Seniors now have access to Google@Wharton! If you missed the announcement, this is now where you should read your email. For complete directions see our June SPIKE posting. If you have any questions or need help re-configuring your email, contact the Student Support Team.
Wharton is utilizing the Google@Wharton platform for student mail and collaboration purposes. This service provides access to Gmail, Chat, Calendar, Drive and Sites using your Wharton account. All current students will be migrated to this service over the summer. You will receive an email notification a few weeks in advance of it happening stating exactly when your account will be moved.
After the migration process has begun you will have access to your Google@Wharton account. To access your account you will need to activate it and re-configure your devices. For instructions on how to activate your account please visit: https://spike.wharton.upenn.edu/googleatwharton/
For more information about the Google@Wharton service, including the benefits of the platrform, such as better collaboration opportunities, tighter integration between Wharton and Google, and several calendar sharing options, please see our Support website.
