TuftsLife.com Leave it to Tufts undergraduates
to bring some ideas to the Web about life at Tufts. A new non-profit,
student-operated organization, TuftsLife.com aims to serve the Tufts
community by providing easy, centralized access to the vast resources
Tufts and the Internet have to offer.The centerpiece is an Internet
portal site that co-founder Mike Masterman, A03, says "fills a largely
overlooked niche" by providing a centralized site where users can
easily access all the information distributed on Tufts'many websites
and provide links to external sites frequented by students. Visitors
will find links to all major Tufts web sites, campus announcements
and notices, a campus calendar, dining menus, email resources, world
and national news, and more. "Our feedback to this point has been
nothing but positive," says Masterman, who adds that about 19 students
now volunteer their services to keeping the site current and lively.
"It provides the best of both worlds: information specifically tailored
for the Tufts community as well as access to many popular sites
on the Internet."
