Portal Integration and a Scalable, Flexible Enterprise System
Bruce Taggart, vice president and provost of library and technology services at Lehigh, wrote an article on Lehigh's portal system in Syllabus magazine. "At Lehigh University, our goal is to increasingly personalize our portal to the needs of each individual user and to make it their primary institution resource. For example, in 2003 we conducted our summer freshmen orientation completely online through our portal. All the resources that freshmen needed, from 'meeting' with counselors and library services, to gathering information on residence halls and food services, were available online," he wrote.

Experts: Only if he Lied can Bush be Harmed

Frank Colon, a political science professor at Lehigh University, said the only long-term damage to Bush's candidacy will come if the commission finds he knowingly lied to the American public. The commission "would have to show the president intentionally lied to us," Colon said. "But we don't have anyone saying that. They're saying he was the victim of bad information."

Partners, Places to meet Scarce for Singles

Lehigh University Sociology Professor Robert Rosenwein was quoted in an article on online dating. “The TV age meant that people retreated to their homes and over time, they're continuing to spend less time in groups," says Rosenwein. "Another reason is that many singles are becoming more career-obsessed."
The article also mentioned Zoellner Arts Center's first annual gathering for singles that will take place on Saturday, Feb. 7 following a concert by the Mark Morris Dance Group. Zoellner Art Center Director Liz Scofield immediately emphasized that the center's solo night isn't just for people looking for a potential relationship. It's for anyone looking to meet new people or a possible companion for a cultural event, she says. "Singles are usually more comfortable with other singles and even if you come with someone you can look for more companions."
