USNA Alumni Association – Updates to Classmail
We’re making classmail better! Starting in February, we will begin moving the classmail service over to a new provider. There should be no interruption of service during this migration.
Classmail is now a full email service, not just a forwarding service (It can still forward as well). It’s powered by Google G Suites, just like Gmail is. Your classmail email address will remain the same but now you can log into it and use it just like you use Gmail. You’ll also have access to all the other google services like Google Docs and Google Sheets.
What do you need to do?
Over the next month, you will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org that will require you to confirm your forwarding address. All members who want to use classmail will need to take action. Even if you want to continue to forwarding email to the same address, you’ll need to approve the forwarding request that was sent to this address and follow the instructions in that email. A separate email will be sent with login credentials to use the new service as full service email.

Midshipmen Visit to Sheboygan (March 10 – 18)
9 Midshipmen from the Naval Academy’s Midshipman Action Group (MAG) will be coming to Sheboygan March 10 – 18 during their Spring Break from USNA. They will be participating in 1 week of service with Rebuilding Together – Sheboygan County.
Rebuilding Together – Sheboygan County is an affiliate of the nation’s leading nonprofit working to preserve affordable homeownership and ritualize communities. In 2016, the Midshipman Action Group volunteered with Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade to provide critical home repairs to an elderly Florida homeowner.
Rebuilding Together has numerous construction / service projects for the midshipmen to work on throughout the week, including helping at the home of a double amputee Wisconsin veteran.
Alumni volunteers are needed to help support the Midshipman Action Group! Rebuilding Together is providing lodging in Sheboygan and food for the midshipmen. However, we need volunteers to supervise and participate alongside the Midshipman Action Group on these construction projects! We also plan to host at least one social event for the midshipmen to connect with our alumni.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you are able to support on any day between March 10 – 18. If you know of any contractors who could volunteer time, please point them in our direction!
This Spring Break trip will have high visibility with both the Naval Academy and the Alumni Association, so please don’t miss this chance to help support your alma mater and our alumni chapter!
The MAG is still working on their itinerary for the trip, but we wanted to get the word out as soon as possible for planning purposes. We will provide more details as soon as we receive them.
