Boxer Apps are Pacific’s implementation of Google Apps for Education suite. This service allows the Pacific community to access popular Google applications, such as Google Docs, Blogger and YouTube, with their Pacific University accounts. Furthermore, because these services are connected to University accounts, faculty, staff, and students can easily use Google Apps to share materials and collaborate online with others in the Pacific community.
Accessing Boxer Apps
For more information, on Boxer Apps, log in with your PUNetID and Password.
Alternatively, you can simply navigate to the Google Service you wish to access and log in with your credentials. There is just one catch when you do this – you will need to add @pacificu.edu after your PUNetID.
