The system will look and work exactly like regular gmail, except there will be a GW logo and the address will end in @gwu.edu.
"The University will begin using Google Mail as its primary e-mail client next fall, exponentially increasing the amount of online storage space.
Memory quotas for students will expand from 20 megabytes to six gigabytes - about 300 times more than the current alotment."
Arizona State University was one of the first colleges to implement this service and students have been very happy. Here's a link to their 'Gmail for ASU' homepage.
Hope this is a sign of things to come in technology at GW. Fingers crossed one of the next steps will be campus-wide wireless...
