Aliases can be used for this purpose. For example, if you were emailing your CIS232B class on the Fall 2013 semester, you would e-mail 13fa-cis232a@mynu.niagara.edu. These aliases only work for emails originating from NU staff e-mail accounts. They do not work for off-campus accounts, including students. In addition to this method, if you are using Canvas, you can use the messaging functionality.
