I'm not going to lie, I stole this idea. I was once told that if someone is copying you, it is actually a compliment. So I think we need to compliment the Student Union at the University of Alberta. They have this really cool system that we can duplicate and make really relevant to the students at Saint Mary's. It works as an online Frequently Asked Questions site. Most of the topics are academic related
My idea is to create this FAQ system online for students to ask about classes, programs, appeals, student rights, volunteer opportunities, etc. There could also be an academic glossary, referrals section, information about plagiarism, and other resources. This would help students find information quickly and easily.
