School of Medicine and Health Sciences: Listservs

Listservs

General Listserv Information

Listservs are email lists which manage discussions by disseminating messages to many people at one time. The student listservs provide information on school activities and policies. Click on the appropriate group listed below for instructions on joining. 

Listservs communicate messages to all people who have joined. When you reply to a listserv message, check carefully to whom you are sending the message. Most often, you will want to reply to the individual who sent the message, rather than the entire listserv. 

To send a message to a list, address it to the list name. Example: to send a message to the MED2020 list:

To: med2020@hermes.gwu.edu

One message can be sent to several lists; just separate the addresses with commas:

To: med2020@hermes.gwu.edu, med2019@hermes.gwu.edu

To unsubscribe and leave a listserv

Please note you must remain subscribed to your class listserv while you remain a student at GWU School of Medicine and Health Sciences - the listservs are used as the official communication between the Dean's and you.

To unsubscribe from a list, from your GW email account create a new message:

TO: listserv@hermes.gwu.edu
MESSAGE TEXT: unsubscribe name-of-list
e.g. unsubscribe med2020
