Why: E-mail is the primary way that most professors communicate with their students, as well as all the other offices on campus. If you aren’t checking your email, then you may miss an important announcement, memo, or other communication. It is a good idea to check your e-mail through myhome since there are other college announcements posted in the myhome portal. You can’t take advantage of an opportunity if you don’t know it exists. Also, make sure you do not let your email box reach capacity.
