uGuelph Launches Web Portal

October 10, 2006

The University of Guelph has recently launched a “cradle-to-grave” online web portal at http://myportico.uoguelph.ca. High school applicants will begin their relationship with the University through MyPortico, and will continue to use the portal throughout their studies and the transition to alumni status, when they will begin to receive The Portico alumni magazine. The portal offers students a personalized environment that “pushes information to you that’s relevant to you,” a personal calendar with reminders for meetings and classes, a briefcase function to save and share files, access to news services, and the ability to create discussion forums or weblogs.
