  • July 15, 2009: We are experimenting with several changes and new features to Rhea starting today. First, we integrated a content search using google's search engine that will allow users to find content faster. Second, we will be placing useful "Liaison" sidebars on Rhea pages in an effort to connect current students with research groups, alumni, and employment opportunities. (Click here to learn more about these liaisons. If you have feedback, please write it here.) Look for more changes in the near future.

  • January 12, 2009: The content from the different databases used last semester has been merged into a single database for easier browsing and better scalability. Thanks to Ben Brame for writing the scripts and taking care of the merge!
  • November 6, 2008: Dennis Snell and Mike Walker created a new skin with Purdue's color scheme. It's been deployed on Prof. Boutin's ECE301 wiki and Prof. Bell's MA181 wiki. Your comments are welcome!
  • October 17, 2008: Our front page has been viewed more than 3,000 times.
  • October 10, 2008: If you google for "Purdue Rhea", our site is now the first item on the list. Yeah!!
