CRSD students now have access to the Microsoft service known as Office 365. Office 365 offers a variety of tools for students, including email access (email only within the CRSD organization), file storage, and only versions of the Office productivity suite (Word, PowerPoint, and Excel). Just use your CRSD email address (your student id number followed by “@student.crsd.org; i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org) to gain access! You can even download the software and install it at home!
