E-mail

Prior to your arrival you may communicate with the International Center using any e-mail account you prefer.  However, other offices such as Residence Life and your college's dean's office may only use your Drake e-mail address even before you arrive on campus.  After you have registered for classes you can access your Drake e-mail account via the "e-mail" link on the top-right corner of screen in blueview.  All Drake students/staff/faculty e-mail addresses are in the format of firstname.lastname@drake.edu.  Please get into the habit of checking your Drake e-mail on a daily basis.

Once you have arrived, the International Center will send monthly e-mails to all international students including periodic immigration updates.  These newsletters and all other communications will only be sent to your Drake e-mail account; other e-mail addresses will not be used.

If you have questions about student e-mail accounts or computing at Drake, please visit the Office of Information Technology's website(click on the link for "New and Prospective Student Information").
