Re: How about...........?

There's a measuring tool built into Google Maps. As near as I can tell, where they're starting to where they're finishing is about 165 feet. I didn't realize that they were still doing it as part of Homecoming...I don't remember hearing anything about it the last few years. When it first started at ...

Re: How about...........?

They used to do a cardboard boat regatta at the pond in Glenwood Park, which was a much better size for that type of thing (and a decade or two before that in the Patton Park pond...I participated in one of those). The theme is already set for this year, but you could suggest the idea to the alumni ...

Re: Basketball Recruits - 2018

I think a really smart coach is always going to adjust his recruiting areas to be in closer proximity to his location. Chicago to Macomb vs Indy to Macomb not much different when you drive it, but the Amtrak Chicago option makes a difference, if for no other reason than a kid's family has a better ...

Re: Updates to faculty layoff plan and other stuff

Looks like there is a move away from the Liberal Arts programs and going towards the Technical and Vocational programs. But what exactly have they done away with? In the recent past they've made large cuts (or complete eliminations) to things like Women's studies, African-American Studies, etc. But...

Re: Basketball Recruits - 2018

Coach Wright seems to like to go towards the Indy area for a lot of his recruiting. Kinda makes sense, he's from Indiana, so probably has a decent number of contacts around there.

Re: Updates to faculty layoff plan and other stuff

It is a positive strategic move, focusing on what we CURRENTLY do best. But when you get down in the weeds, is it really that much different? Centers of Excellence concept is a little muddy IMHO. What is it about a college program that makes it "Regional"? If you graduate, you can find a job somewh...

Re: Updates to faculty layoff plan and other stuff

And we provide access, not assess - 2 VERY different words Between Thomas' enunciation and Rives Afghani beard and serious continued eye blink/twitch, we do not exactly put our best foot forward. Yes, it was painful to both watch and listen to. Maybe I'm just too picky, but listening to the univers...

Re: Forum Upgrade + New Template

ST, my Chrome automatic login form values for user and password are not showing up any more and I am not getting prompted to save them.. I assume related to your recent change. I think we saw this before. Might be related to HTTP vs HTTPS. Yes, that's the issue. The front page was referencing an im...
