Online Student Bulletin Board
Currently, it is not easy for CMU students and faculty to become more involved within the campus community. Many wish to be more in-touch with what's happening but are unsure on how to accomplish this task, since there is no central place for information about campus happenings. CMU does have an "official" events calendar, but it does not incorporate the various events that are posted by student organizations. In addition, this current calendar is quite complicated for organizations to utilize and update, so many simply ignore it.
CMU Portal serves to help with these problems by being an indispensable online resource with up-to-date information that is pertinent to the CMU community. It provides a central place for organizations to promote themselves and for students to browse through campus events. Hopefully, with this comprehensive list, more students will be aware of what's going on and be more active on campus.
