Official announcements from the GHA are disseminated via our university email list.? All students are automatically enrolled in the list when they enter the graduate program.? Questions about the list should be directed to the GHA's communications director. Students can send messages to the list from their Columbia email accounts, via Cubmail or an email program they configure, like Thunderbird or Apple Mail.
The email address for the list is email@example.com. Please note that students who are receiving Columbia email with a service like Gmail should remember to send messages to the list from their Columbia accounts, not from a non-Columbia account.
