Most of us will get into a car accident eventually

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."

The Student Guide to Staying Connected

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.
