theCampusCenter.com seems to be in the right place at the right time. With the rebirth of the Web 2.0 truly rising in the 18-24 year old marketplace this new website is designed for the college age student and gives them the ability to communicate, create, store, print or email their research and class assignments all from one easy-to-use Web environment.

From here students can access any number of Web tools, myResearch, myLinks, myNotes, myMedia, myPapers – an online Word processing feature, myBlog, myRSSFeeds, myChat, myWeather and even myHoroscope. They can also share videos or listen to the Indie music selection available on the site. Artists like Peter Toh and IncidentalBliss are featured in theMusic section.
But this is just one part of the site. At its core is theResearchCenter. Here students are able to search pre-qualified, discipline specific, dynamically updated research materials all from an open access search engine. Students can also submit links they find valuable.
