Transcript nline communities shrink ever-expanding campus Story by Jessica Robertson inding friends, information and common ground in a university as large as UH can be difficult at times. So it's no wonder that online communities targeted specifically toward UH students are gaining popularity, aiming to make finding a place in the university as simple as the click of a mouse. A popular Web site for college students, thefacebook.com, recently added a UH chapter, which now has more than 5,000 registered members. "College students return to (our) site to find information on their peers, to make connections with friends... and to communicate with one another" Chris Hughes, a spokesman for thefacebook.com, said. "It's a reference tool and a means of communication. I think that combination — and the fact that it's fun to use — keeps people coming back!' Brad Armstrong, a 1983 UH Law Center graduate and single father, wanted to develop an online dating community to connect students and alumni from his alma mater. "College students return to (our) site to find information on their peers, to make connections with friends... and to communicate with one another." — Chris Hughes, thefacebook.com His Web site development company, whitebuffaloventures.com, has launched several specialty dating Web sites, including SingleCougars.com. Like other online dating Web sites, SingleCougars.com allows users to submit basic biographical information and a photo, but the site also asks users to give their favorite Cougar sport and discuss their experiences at UH. Although SingleCougars.com has a number of users with success stories, finding love is not the only benefit of the site. "You're beginning the relationship with shared interests and then looking for chemistry, so ... you're more likely to have a friend even if you don't end up with romance" Armstrong said. Other online communities, such as Livejournal and MySpace, feature UH chapters maintained by students and alumni. TheCougarWeb.com, a Web site created by UH students, includes message boards, classified ads and professor ratings as well as a textbook exchange program. B »
