Boston College Will Stop Offering New Students E-Mail Accounts: I’m actually a little surprised colleges were still doing this. I wonder what percentage of incoming students don’t have email anymore?
Many students don’t even want a college e-mail address these days because they already have well-established digital identities before they arrive on campus. That’s the conclusion that officials at Boston College came to in a recent review of their online services. So the college recently decided to stop offering full e-mail accounts to incoming students starting next fall.
