George Mason’s Alumni Association has developed a new web portal for alumni and friends of the university. The site, zPatriots.com, was created in conjunction with zUniversity.com, and provides users with the latest services available on the Internet, as well as networking opportunities and connections with George Mason.
According to Jeff Johnson, president of the George Mason University Alumni Association, zPatriots.com will facilitate alumni outreach, assist the Alumni Association in its endeavors to be more inclusive, and further develop opportunities for alumni to interact with the university.
Users can set up free forwarding e-mail and customize the page to reflect personal preferences they want to see each time they log on. Features include local weather, news, personal portfolio tracking and investment information, online shopping that benefits the Alumni Association, the AltaVista search engine, and an online daily planner. The site also links to George Mason University websites, and includes up-to-the-minute news and information about the university.
