New BrandeisNOW

The new BrandeisNOW website seems pretty spiffy. Hopefully it’ll catch on.

It’s interesting that there are a few different takes on the “centralized” event calendars for Brandeis. There is one on BrandeisNOW, on, there’s the community Activist Calendar (right here on the right), the Steph Grimes Weekend emails, there are the Student Union Announcement Emails.

The lack of an authoritative and widely-read calendar has opened space for a variety of entrepreneurial approaches to fill that niche. We’ll see how that shakes out.
