Yep it's new. To start off the academic year we thought we'd try a whole new way of communicating. I hope this site will sort of be the "front door" for student life at VDS. You can find your way into our community from many angles but our desire is to have a recognizable place to get the information you need to get involved.
Each student organization (along with SGA and the Administration) is creating a Google calendar that they maintain but which is viewable thought this site. That way we'll all know what it going on and can plug in where we choose. We also hope to reduce the amount of email students receive by asking that events be promoted here (See the Announcement link & Calendar) and through the new white board outside of the Common Room - along with the regular fliers and bulletin boards.
Feel free to leave comments or suggestions - and subscribe to this feed (link in the upper left) so that you'll know when a new announcement goes up.)
Peace, Eric Burton-Krieger on behalf of SGA 2010-2011
