With a TAMUK e-mail, you are able to showcase your Javelina Pride to your recipients including potential employers.
First impressions count more often than most would lead us to believe. An e-mail address is often the first piece of communication a person receives from you. A student e-mail address automatically shows academic credibility. It shows who you are and what you do. As a student, you have worked hard for the opportunity to have a @student.tamuk.edu address - use it to your advantage. From a career standpoint – your future employer might be a Javelina, too. Take the opportunity to show you are a proud part of Javelina Nation.
Your TAMUK e-mail also comes with perks. Companies such as Prezi.com, a presentation tool that helps organize and share ideas, rewards students for registering for their services with their student e-mail account. It pays to have Javelina Pride.
REMINDER: After April 15th you will no longer receive emails regarding your courses, grades, registration, status, financial aid, or other important university information to any other e-mail outside of your TAMUK e-mail.
