Connecting to the Wireless Network

Students with their own laptops are able to connect to the Law School's wireless network.

Once connected to the wireless network, students are able to access personal and shared files on the Law School's student file server, and can print to any of our shared printers. Having a connection to the wireless network is also a requisite for taking final exams on computer.

blueView / E-mail

blueView is the Drake University portal to student services.  Students may use blueView to find account information, get e-mail access, use calendars, register for classes, view your class schedule, and other student resources.  You will be provided with login information during Orientation.
