All students receive an @hood.edu email address through which the College sends its official communications to all Hood email addresses. You receive notices about schedules, grade results, billing information, emergency alerts, important deadlines and all other official college information at this address. It is your responsibility to read and manage this email.
More than just email, Hood in the Cloud will provide students with a number of productivity and collaboration tools, starting with 10GB of online mail and 25GB of online file storage, with much more to come!
