Alumni Electronic Communication
The University of St. Francis is pleased to offer a valuable benefit to alumni: a permanent e-mail address that allows you to keep in touch with family, friends, and business associates, with no break in communication, no matter how many times you relocate or change your Internet service provider.
It is the only address that your friends and associates will ever need to know to stay in contact with you because it is permanent. When you switch jobs or e-mail providers your friends and family will still be able to communicate with you without any interruptions or the need to notify people that you have made a change. It's as simple as that. This benefit is offered only to University of St. Francis alumni and our special friends.
The University of St. Francis (the “University”) provides current and future alumni as
well as friends of the University (“Users”) with a suite of electronic services (“Alumni Services” or “Services”) only in order to support the educational, research and public service missions of the University of St. Francis. We intend for these services to be used toward this end by facilitating communication among Users and between Users and the University.
