BABY BUCS
Welcome to the world, Liana Faith Nuckolls and Teresa June Nuckolls, perfect twin girls born October 23 to proud parents Megan and Kevin Nuckolls (ITS). Liana, born first, weighed 6 lbs., 3 oz; Teresa followed her at 5 lbs., 11 oz. Everyone is home and doing fine, even though Kevin also spent much of his weekend here at CBU, busily giving birth to a new Web site...

NEW CBU WEB SITE LAUNCHING
The newly developed CBU Web site is being launched and is scheduled to be shown at tomorrow's meeting of the Board of Trustees. A special cross-functional task force has been working on the new design and redevelopment since February, which was undertaken to reposition the CBU Web site as a primary marketing tool. Its purpose is to market the University to prospective and current students, parents, donors, and other interested persons; and to better position the University’s image among its peer institutions and in the community. Thanks are expressed to the Task Force for their commitment, hard work, and long hours devoted to developing the Web site. Please note that this is the first phase of the project, and work will be continuing to further migrate the enormous volume of pages from the old Web site to the new one.
