Bigger mailboxes can save paper

NIU Google Apps for students

NIU implemented Google Apps for students in August 2012. Google Apps for Education are free for higher education and include email, calendars, chat and collaboration tools. 

A Google mailbox has 25 Gigabytes storage, making it an alternative to saving printed documents. Google Drives makes creation and collaboration on electronic documents easy, and with Google Sites, a website can be created to gather all the documents in one place.
