George Washington will be feeling lucky after Gmail switch

So, the overpriced Robin Williams show and the new mascot were both a little lame. Still, something tells me our friends over in Foggy Bottom will be all right–GW is switching its student email service to Gmail in the fall.

The change comes with benefits: larger storage capacity, liberated server space, and University savings. If only Georgetown could have those things, too–but we can! Hopefully a successful switch to Gmail at GW will encourage our own administrators to follow suit.
