 NOTE:

If you are part of an organization (Example, Student Government Association) and the associated email (sga@my.fit.edu) is taken by someone no longer reachable, you will need to get your faculty sponsor to email techsupport@fit.edu with the name of the president of the organization, asking that they are given ownership of the Group.
