One of the best reasons to use your U: drive is that it's accessible on any campus computer. Thus, you don't have to carry your laptop or flash drive to class. Simply log into the teacher station computer and your U: drive will be there.

You can also access your U: drive off campus if you request remote access from IT. For more information, please visit: http://it.cofc.edu/network/remote/
Google Drive is a cloud-based file repository, which means you can access your files from any device that connects to the Internet. So, for example, a document you create on your office desktop will be available on your smartphone while you wait at the airport, and on your laptop while you're at a conference.
No more emailing files to yourself or trying to remember your flash drive!
