Since the advent of the digital age, many services have been forced to adapt to the new influx of computer-savvy students relying upon America Online Instant Messenger as a primary communication tool or face obscurity and ovsolescence. The Computer Interest Floor has tapped into the growing need for online resourses through creating http://forsale.cif.rochester.edu, which has a number of good qualities and has the potential to become one of UR’s most helpful tools.This site, a student-run effort, hosts a discussion group which serves as a virtual ride board, a forum in which students can arrange to find rides to and from practically any destination. This system has successfuly replaced the unused and unnoticed ride board currently serving as a decoration in the Hive.For college students on tight budgets, the ability to offer rides in exchange for gas money and get rides home for the holidays certainly grants a much-needed way for students to save money. The site provides students with a cheaper way home or to vacation spots, and it allows people to easily find travel companions to make long journeys less lonely.A traditional ride board exists in the Hive, but it has been unused for some time. It is not nearly as accessible as the forum on http://forsale.cif.rochester.edu. Also, as a post to the forum points out, this new system allows students to also find a ride from a different location back to Rochester.Hopefully, many students will take advantage of this improved resource, as it is indeed an opportunity to take advantage of a tool that has yet to be fully actualized. This forum can easily become a very useful tool for everyone to consider before they plan a trip.The new innovations in the ride board additionally provide great opportunities for people to find rides over spring break and for the occasional weekend trip to Niagara Falls or Toronto.



An open letter to all members of any university community

A reality in fiction: the problem of representation

Oftentimes, rather than embracing femininity as part of who they are, these characters only retain traditionally masculine traits.
