Getting a Google Gmail Account

Every LBCC employee is assigned an LBCC Gmail account. Your division admin will submit the request for your email and system log in when you are hired. Your email address will be lastnamefirstinitial@linnbenton.edu in most cases. Students are instructed to reach faculty using only their Linn-Benton email address, so we ask that you use this address on your syllabus. It is easy to forward mail from this address to another account if you dislike checking multiple email accounts (look in the help menu in the email program that you’d like to use, e.g. Gmail).

Once you start using our email, you will often see emails that are to “public” and “everyone.”  The “everyone” emails go to everyone and you cannot unsubscribe from this group - only specific people on campus can send to this email, and messages will be things like emergency closures or major campus changes. The "public" group can be left and is generally messages about club events, community or non-profit events, etc. You will also see the occasional paid ad – to send a message not related to college business (e.g. “free kittens”), stop by the Business Office in the Calapooia Center and pay a $2.00 fee. Put “Paid Ad” in the subject line.
