College Town: 16 Reasons Why Mizzou's Home Is The Greatest By Sam Levin Wed., Aug. 7 2013 at 7:00 AM via Mizzou Facebook Columbia, Missouri is one of the best college towns in America! So says Livability.com , which has released its top Chiriqui ten list for college towns in the country -- ones that, the site says, appeal not only to potential students but also residents and businesses. After all, "a university's off-campus impact can also shape a town's character and keep people there for a lifetime," the ranking says. Columbia got the No. 4 , but we know that there are many reasons CoMo really could be No. 1 (and should Boulder really be considered a "college" town?!).
Columbia’s bus system aims to increase Gamecock Express ridership
The city bus system is working with University of South Carolina to get about one in 10 fans, or about 8,000 people, to attend the games by buses, reducing game day congestion and increasing safety, said Bob Schneider, executive director of Central Midlands Transit system, known as The COMET. That would be twice as many riders as in previous seasons, Schneider said. For $3.50 on game days, riders can get a wristband that allows them to ride to and from the game after parking their cars in the Vista or on campus. The wristbands allow riders to access the entire transit system for that day in addition to the shuttle to and from the stadium. The fleet of about two dozen buses will run the shuttle route continuously beginning four hours before kickoff and then again for two hours after the game, Schneider said, giving fans the option to tailgate. The shuttle, called the SC Gamecock Express, will pick up in front of USCs Russell House, at Greene and Sumter streets, and at the intersection of Blossom http://www.kiwibox.com/wardoquf/blog/entry/108014961/los-angeles-trayvon-martin-protests-mostly-peaceful-reach/?pPage=0 and Lincoln streets, near the Carolina Coliseum in the Vista. The shuttle will drop passengers off outside the fairgrounds, on the Rosewood Drive side.
Columbia Named A Top U.S. College Town: 16 Reasons Why Mizzou's Home Is The Greatest
Project planners are shutting down the offices that spent up to $170 million planning to replace the Interstate 5 bridge over the Columbia River. The project that also depended on money from Oregon, Washington and Washington, D.C., collapsed at the end of June when the Washington state Legislature turned thumbs down on a $450 million share of the project. (AP Photo/Don Ryan) On Wednesday, business leaders and citizens asked the governors of Oregon and Washington to support a new phased-in and scaled back plan for a bridge across the Columbia River from Portland to Vancouver. Ever since the $3.7 billion plan for the Columbia River Crossing was scuttled at the hands of the Washington Legislature in June, http://www.picowiki.com/arlenxhov/index.php/Hollywood Actress Admits- ?I Waited Until I Was 29 to Lose My Virginity? regional project leaders have been looking for a way to utilize the $170 million worth of planning, surveying and permitting that had already been done for the project. The new plan, at $2.7 billion, would include light rail, and would phase in multiple bridges. [DETAILS] Do you think the project is worth pursuing? Do you have more questions about the specifics of the plan, or how likely it will be that a deal could come together in time to capture $850 million in federal funding available for light rail.
Columbia River Crossing revival? Live chat, noon, Thursday
is pleased to announce the launch of a new responsive website for Columbia College, making the College the first major private liberal arts college in Vancouver to adapt to the trend of consumers using smartphones as the primary device for accessing websites, and among the first BC colleges to do so. The new website is part of Columbia Colleges ongoing efforts to enhance the quality and timeliness of information to students, prospective students, and parents. More than 30% of cellphone owners use smartphones more often than desktop systems to go online, says Yetla Hernandez, Columbia Colleges social media coordinator and website project lead. For our target audience of young adults, this percentage is even higher. We want to make it easy for students to find us and to find information once they are on our website.
