Meet Roy Bosch. Roy is the construction supervisor for Campus Coop Commons and has spent the last year firmly planted here in our backyard overseeing this project since the very beginning.It's clear to all of us at the Co-op just how much pride Roy takes in his work, and we're lucky to have him. And this project ain't no walk in the park. It ain't no basic square box either. We're sure there are times when Roy curses the lack of right angles and the abundance of fancy nooks and crannies that require a lot of extra attention on all the contractor's parts. But in the end, they're constructing a high-quality building that's built to last, and one that we can all be proud of.
Let's say you're driving down Gordon Street when - bam! - someone smashes in to the rear of your car. Or you're in the parking lot of No Frills and you pull out and - bam! - crunch in the side panel of an old lady's SUV. Maybe you borrowed the car from a roommate, or it was Mom & Dad's old beater that you've borrowed for the term.
Do you know what happens next? Do you have all your documents in order? Do you even know what all the documents are?
It's not going to cut it to call up Mom or Dad on your cell and expect them to take care of everything.
Most of us work hard to push all these pesky issues out of our mind. And it works for awhile. Until it doesn't. Don't wait till it happens to you to get prepared. When the adrenaline is pumping and the fear kicks in is the wrong time to wonder how to cover yer butt. So here's the deal: read our new doc "10 Things you Need to Know if you get Into a Car Accident". It's free to download. It could save you some real grief "down the road."
Pretty soon children will be born digitally compatible, like in The Matrix. Unfortunately, this hasn't happened yet. (…or has it? Nevermind.) Regardless, we all need to know the best ways to stay connected without being gouged. We've come up with a list of questions you should ask to make sure you are getting the best deals and best service. Are there differences in providers? Should you buy or lease your phone? What happens when you travel? How much data do you need?
The world is changing, and nowhere is this more evident than with technology. A short decade ago, every student moving in to Co-op housing ordered a home phone line. Now - not one. But while our choices have expanded, and we have services and capabilities we couldn't have even known would exist back then, it's not like everything is straightforward - or cheap. So check out our Staying Connected guide, available for free in the Documents section, to help you navigate the brave new world. Be ready for the Minority Report.
