Ever wondered, that you can use your college Gmail in many ways other than requesting your professor for attendance? There are many advantages of having a college Gmail. Let’s see what are they.
Before going into detail, let me discuss a few points about the college Gmails. Mails having a domain as .edu or .ac are considered as educational or academic Gmails, for example, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
Here are some benefits of having .edu or .ac Gmails.
