Can I use my personal gmail account on my company's computer to send networking emails to employees at different companies?

I am working at a BB for my junior summer internship but I am trying to network with other people at different companies as I want to recruit at other companies. Is it ok to access my university Gmail account on my work computer and send networking emails to analysts at other companies?

I just want to make sure that I am not violating any company policies and that HR does not figure out what I am doing.

Are you really working at a BB...? I'm pretty sure compliance at a BB bracket is tight enough that they won't allow you to have access to an external email besides the one from your work.
