Web site will include information about more than 900 courses offered at the University.

The SA Computer Affairs Committee transcripted last semester’s data, said Alex Diacre, computer affairs committee chair.

The efforts of the SA will give students greater accessibility to the survey results and conserve money that would have been used to print the information, Diacre said.
