About the Squad
In Spring 2014, Coppin's Information Technology Division started TechKNOW Squad as a resource to help Coppin students better understand available campus technologies. Professors can request the Squad for classroom visits and presentations.

The TechKNOW squad has between 10-20 student members who are also majoring in Management Information Systems. Student members present on topics, including:
- Eagle Mobile
- Office 365
TechKNOW Squad members are students who volunteer their time to help fellow students learn about Coppin campus technologies.
Interested in joining us? You must be able to show your expertise in using campus technologies, and regularly attend meetings and activities. Does this sound like you? Email us to learn more.

Their office is located in the Grace Hill Jacobs building in Room 106.

After you graduate from Coppin State University, your email account will stay active for approximately 2 months. Before you graduate, we recommend transferring any information, emails, and documents you want to keep from your student email account over to a personal email account, flash drive, or other cloud-computing service, such as OneDrive or Google Drive.
During spring, summer, fall, and winter semesters you may print up to 200 sheets of paper. After you reach the 200 page maximum, we charge your account 10 cents per sheet, which will be posted on your bill at the beginning of the next semester.
