Francis Marion University has partnered with Google to bring Google Apps to all of our currently enrolled students.  Along with email accounts, our students can also enjoy other Google applications like Google Talk, Google Docs, and more.  Every student is required to activate their Swampfox Mail e-mail account, which FMU uses to communicate important information and notices.  Accordingly, students are responsible for messages and information sent via the FMU provided e-mail account; therefore, it is critical that all students activate and utilize this service.
