Email, Wi-Fi and Google Classroom

Email, Wifi and Google Classroom

Upon arrival, new students receive a Luther email. This email is hosted through Google’s Gmail service. With this email, students gain access to their personal Google Drive, as well as all other Google products including Google Classroom. These email accounts are disabled immediately upon graduation or withdrawal from Luther.

New Luther College students receive individual Wi-Fi usernames and passwords when they arrive. Students are responsible for remembering to set up their accounts with security questions and updating their passwords. Most Luther teachers use Google Classroom as their digital space to share handouts, assignments and announcements with their students.

Common troubles for students can be resolved using the steps here:
