Some of the most important resources you will use as a BU student include:
Make sure you are reading your BU email It’s important to check the mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org because this is the official way for the University to contact you. If you have an existing e-mail account that you prefer to use, you can forward your BU email using the Settings menu within BU Google Mail (as described at www.bu.edu/tech/comm/email/google).
Turnitin – Your professors will be checking for plagiarism, and you should too! Learn more about the Turnitin plagiarism detection service at www.bu.edu/turnitin.
Printing – Thanks to Blackboard and other online services, many documents won’t need to be printed. If you do not have a printer in your room, or for times when you need large-scale printing, you can use My Print. NOTE: If you do opt to bring a printer to your room, it must be capable of authenticating via wireless (802.1x) or will need to run on Ethernet. Learn more at www.bu.edu/tech/movein.
The Student Link – You might have already used the Student Link – or will soon! It provides access to all of your personal, academic, financial and other information relevant to Boston University. You can register for classes, pay your bills, buy Convenience Points, and maintain other information. Learn more and use the “The Link” at www.bu.edu/studentlink.
