Major Websites

Did you know there are websites for each individual major offered by the Rosary College of Arts and Sciences? Most of these sites either link to a main department (such as communications or psychology for example) or are simply informative pages detailing requirements and contacts for each major.

But one site cuts above the rest: The Art department. Aside from having a beautifully designed site with links to contact information, a gallery and a study abroad link for their European programs, the site also prominently features beautiful artwork by a Dominican student on the homepage. There are even links to individual pages on art department faculty members where visitors can learn about the professors and catch up on their recent work. It is by far the best site for any program at Dominican I've seen thus far. Perhaps other majors should follow their example and spruce up their websites a bit?

When was the last time you walked down the crowded halls of the first floor of Lewis and noticed the lonely registrar's office? Unless you are a senior in need of an audit, it's probably been quite some time since you thought about this office. With technology taking the lead as the main form of class registration and communication, what else does the registrars office provide for students? Need more information for your opinion?

Here's the never fails!

Many resident studnets walk by their mailboxes multiple times a day, but never even bother to open it. Other resident students open their box at least once a day, only to find nothing. Do they even serve a purpose anymore? Most students communicate with their friends and family through email or the phone these days. If mail is used it is mainly for online ordering or care packages, which are picked up in the mailroom, so should residents even still have those tiny mailboxes?
