March is a special time for college basketball enthusiasts as the NCAA® Championship games heat up. This season is especially exciting for us on the Apps for Education team to watch, as more than half of the teams in this year’s tournament have Gone Google – meaning they’re using Google Apps for Education on campus.

With more than 11 million students, faculty and staff who are already part of the Google Apps “squad” – providing their campus community with collaboration and communication tools – we’d like to congratulate the 37 Apps schools who are vying for the championship and wish them luck with the rest of the tournament, including:
  • Alabama State University
  • Belmont University
  • Bucknell University
  • Clemson University
  • Gonzaga University
  • Notre Dame
  • Old Dominion University
  • San Diego State University
  • Temple University
  • University of Akron
  • University of Arkansas at Little Rock
  • University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign
  • University of Kentucky
  • University of Nevada, Las Vegas
  • University of Texas at San Antonio
  • University of Southern California
  • University of Washington
  • Utah State University
  • Vanderbilt University
  • Villanova University
For information about how to become a 100% web campus, please visit google.com/apps/edu. While we’re sorry to say we can’t promise any success on the basketball court, you can at least make your own bracket a "slam dunk" with the Google Docs bracket template!
