In this section we have provided recent events and happenings from local
schools. Along with these events, we will announce any new site features
and additions here as well.
2/18/02 - Angry students get together. Find out how this site
After various concerns were brought up in a friendly conversation the
idea for this site was born. Creating a place where students can truly
voice their opinions about problems they have encountered seemed to be
a grand idea. The forum for these opinions would be this web site.
3/07/02 - Development of the St. Louis Student Watch began.
With only a few weeks of bouncing ideas back and forth in our spare time,
we have assembled some preliminary specifications for the web site. We
have put together some prototype pages as well as basic graphical layout
of the sections. There has not been a launch date set, but it looks like
sometime in the summer will be a good time to unveil this site to the
4/08/02 - Programming and database issues are resolved.
Initially we had planned on hosting the site on UNIX servers using PHP,
PERL and mySQL for our programming and database capabilities. After reviewing
various hosting services we decided on a UNIX / MS environment hybrid
instead. The development is going as planned and we should be running
usability tests by May.
6/07/02 - Site is open for visitors!
After months of planning, designing, and testing the St. Louis Student
Watch web site is now open. We hope that this site will be helpful for
local college students and the general public. Help make this project
a success by sharing your thoughts and opinions with others by submitting
articles and posting messages in the discussion forums. Thanks for visiting
and we hope that this community will continue to grow.
8/20/02 - Good luck in the upcoming Fall 2002 semester.
The St. Louis Student Watch wants to wish all students good luck for the
upcoming Fall 2002 semester. We are slowly building relationships to help
add more information to this web sit. If you are interested, please contact
1/05/03 - Happy New Year! Start preparing for a new semester
As 2002 gets underway, we wanted to remind students to get their studies
going on the right track. Use this simple formula: 1) attend class, 2)
complete assignments, and 3) study when needed. By doing this consistently
any course can be passed with little stress and frustration. Best of Luck!
10/18/05 - Site Status
Well, it sure has been a long time since adding to this site. Actually,
I was making the site non-database driven because of issues with the host.
This site is really only used as for historical purposes.
