Getting Started with Integrating Google into your UT Life

A comprehensive calendar for all UTCOM classes and extracurricular activities

  • Keeping track of all of the med school classes AND especially the extracurricular activities is difficult. The main reasons for this are that the extracurricular activities is that the current calendar is inconvenient and it does not contain a comprehensive view of the student’s schedule
  • Therefore, a Google Calendar was created that allows students to view their class schedule as well as their extracurricular activities in the same place
  • What are the benefits of a comprehensive calendar with events and classes?
    * Group leaders will be able to easily see when students are having their tests and so they will know when not to schedule a meeting
    * Students won't have to search through tons of emails to figure out the time of their next meeting
  • Why should we use Google Calendar?
    * You can view many calendars (different lists of events) all in one place. This means that you can view the times of your classes, extracurricular activities, and things going on in your personal life all at the same time
    * You can overlay a personal calendar to add their own events and appointments
    * You can easily access the calendar anywhere, including iPhones and partially Outlook
    * It is fully integrated with Gmail, the email service that most students use
  • Check it out and add it to your own Google Calendar!
