Go to the homework server and fill in your profile.

-Look around at your menu options to be aware of them in the future.

2. Log in.
-Find your period, and your name. 
-Your password is your 4 digit ID.

2. Enter your email* and nickname. (I do not need your phone number)
 -Your email address should be either: a gmail address, OR have a google profile associated with it. (see more below)

3. Change your password so that it is more secure. Write it down in a secure location so that you can find it if you need it. (This is very insecure, but I am not worried about hackers trying to steal your HW server account)
4. Submit the changes and make sure your can log in.

Additional info regarding your email

-You should keep your Google profile as professional as possible. ThunderSwagBoi98, and KittyKrusherKimmy are not good for academia, or professional contacts.
-You should have your name set properly so when you email people your name appears. 
-You should use gmail because it is awesome. You can filter it, and forward it and make it do all kinds of things. 
-You can use a non-gmail account and still have access to google tools associated with your profile.  See here under "email addresses and gmail" https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/1728595?hl=en
-You should check your email regularly, updates or hints to assignments, and other important info may be mailed out. 
-If you want to forward the email address to your main account that is fine.
