The University of Richmond is paving the way for a new way to study science, one that breaks down the barriers between biology, chemistry, physics, math and computer science and fuses them into a single science "supercourse" for first-year students.

"We have thrown out the rule book and are looking at a new, different way to teach science," said Carol Parish, a chemistry professor who will co-teach the course. The integrated class is being developed and taught by ten faculty members from the contributing disciplines, who met weekly last spring and summer and twice a week this year to generate ideas.

Always juicy," is the self-proclaimed description of the Web site JuicyCampus.com, which allows students at 50 colleges and universities to post anonymous comments about other students and organizations at their schools.

But what makes Second Life so different from Internet conference rooms and live chatting is that users can create avatars that represent themselves in Second Life.
