Google Calendar and Outlook 2011

So I have been using Apple's Calendar in the past, but recently it has not been working out very well. I use both Google Calendar for home and the University of Iowa's Microsoft Exchange, and for a few months I have been getting an error message every time I try and open the app up (something about error on the exchange account). I have no clue what this problem is and I am sick of my Calendar icon constantly bouncing around. So I want to try and use Outlook '11, but I have no clue how to get it to work with Google Calendar. Any help is great! ----- On Iowa! Think Different
