Lifetime E-mail Forwarding Coming Soon!
Have you ever had to notify everyone in your online address book that your e-mail address was changing? Would you like to have an e-mail address that remains constant—even if you change jobs or switch to a new Internet service provider? Thanks to the George Mason University Alumni Association, Mason graduates soon can take advantage of lifetime e-mail forwarding.
This service gives you a permanent e-mail alias that forwards all messages to your active e-mail account, enabling you to give just one address to your family, friends, and business associates and never have to change it! When your e-mail address does change, simply forward your alias to the new address for a seamless transition.
You will be notified via e-mail when our forwarding service is live. The service is only available to registered users of the MASONline alumni directory, so register today and be sure to provide your current e-mail address. Simply go to www.gmu.edu/alumni, select "Alumni Directory" from the menu at left, and follow the directions for new users.

The New Century College (NCC) Alumni Chapter was officially granted active status at the June 19 meeting of the Alumni Association Board of Directors. Alumni Eric Sas, B.S. Integrative Study '00, and Holly Biehl, B.A. Integrative Study '00, proposed the chapter and presented bylaws to the board, which unanimously approved the proposal.
