BENEFITS


E-MAIL FOR LIFE

Registered members of the Golden Gate University Alumni Association have the option to set up an alumni e-mail forwarding address through GGU AlumniConnect. This E-mail for Life program is an e-mail forwarding service, which permits users to choose an alumni.ggu.edu e-mail address (for example, johndoe@alumni.ggu.edu) that never changes. It is a lifetime e-mail address that is forwarded to your permanent e-mail account (such as gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc.). Rather than trying to remember to notify everyone (i.e., family, friends, banks, subscriptions, etc.) that your e-mail address has changed, all you need to do is update your preferred settings. Add or Update Email for Life.

Alumni have free access to career advising, career management seminars, job search resources and networking opportunities. Visit the Career Services webpage or login to GGU Careers here.
