My Friends and Other Binghamton University Stuff

aka "Lori's Local Links"

(Wow! Alliteration!)

My sister, Heather, has her own contribution to cyberspace. She and a friend of hers have a page dedicated to (among others) Star Wars, Shannon Miller, Michelle Kwan (HUGE section, I STRONGLY recommend it!!), music, Titanic, The Simpsons and more!!

My fiancee, Rob, operates his own Sports and Politics Webpage. We're both learning how to do this HTML stuff together, but he's usually about a month ahead of me. He's a really great guy (I know ... we've been known each other for almost 5 years!) and he's got some really interesting stuff over there. I highly recommend it ... and I'd say that even if I wasn't partial.

My friend, Dawn, has been working endlessly on her webpage. The highlight is her own personal (Unofficial) Anne of Green Gables Webpage and a Christian Music Clubs Page. She also has various links to Christian and TV sites, including the Ultimate TV List. And Dawn wouldn't be Dawn without stuff on figure skating, especially her favorites: Gordeeva & Grinkov and Paul Wylie. Oh, and while you're there, check out her pseudonym ... "Norse Code" ... my idea.

One of my oldest Binghamton friends (we met the first weekend our freshman year)is Scott. He's a literature/rhetoric and political science double major (and I thought one major was tough!!). He just recently got his web page started, but as of the last time I checked, he has links to a lot of news organizations, including his hometown newspaper. But probably more importantly, Scott has a link to the infamous Purity Tests. The highlight of Scott's Page is his personal obsession, Groundhog Day, although that may have something to do with the fact that it's also his birthday. (Send him a birthday greeting ... Scott's an interesting guy to say the least, so I recommend checking his page out.

"Dem-Man" Mark recently decided to join the information superhighway. Well, all I can say about Mark is that his nickname definitely fits him!!! He's definitely a "bleeding heart liberal". He's living law schools right now, but he's always got time for ANYTHING related to golden retriever.

The lovable Serb, Nikola, has finally gotten his iMac and has thus jumped into cyberspace with both feet. His page is devoted to monitoring events in countries formed after the breakup of former Yugoslavia. He's also one of the funniest guys in grad schools and proof that Serbs aren't as "mean and nasty" as the media portrays!

My former apartmentmate (and now-Binghamton-U-alumnus), Jen, now has her own web page. She hasn't worked too much on it (as of when I'm writing this), but I wanted to make sure I remembered to put in a link to her site. It will probably be devoted to Movie Musicals and Mets Stuff but I don't know what she has decided on.

One of my sister's closest friends, Jessica, has also started a web page. Check out her page if you want to know about where the name Sikad came from, how to bowl, or just to figure out her personality -- if you come up with the answer, please let me know (just kidding, Jess)

Shelli is LITERALLY my oldest college friend -- we met during Orientation before we even STARTED school. She has a "socially conscious" page plus links to your favorite and mine, LEGO(tm).

I was recently able to convince my former-roommate, former-apartmentmate, forever "Roomie", Lauren, to join the information superhighway. She's still using a Go-Kart, but she's slowly but surely getting used to the "rules of the road". Check out her progress!!

Joe's web page is geared towards the academic. He has history stuff and a detailed manifesto on his liberal philosophy.

If you're looking for a SUNY Binghamton student or alumnus webpage and it's not listed here, check out the Student Homepages at Binghamton Page. It's run by an undergrad here, and it's by no means complete, so if you know of any other alumni pages, e mail her (she has her e mail address listed at the bottom of the page

Now on to BU Student Groups ...

A student-run-group web page is The Binghamton University College Democrats , fondly known as BUCD. They also just got their web page, but as of the last time I checked, they had some interesting pictures and midi files. Plus, I happen to know almost the entire group, so I can honestly say that they're planning on putting some really good sound bites, pictures, videos, etc. on there plus up-to-date political and campus information.

Speaking of campus groups, I spend a lot of my Friday night at the Chabad House (or Beit Chabad in Hebrew). It's a lot of fun and is one of the few places on campus where you can be guaranteed to have a place that feels "just like home". Besides, Rivky's homemade Challah can't be beat. Their web page describes the program here at BU plus has links to Judaica-related sites.
