CSUMB has been a Drupal campus since 2008, and we've used the open-source software framework to construct many of our campuses web applications:
- service learning placement system
- IT wikipedia of applications, services, and servers
Drupal is a free software package that allows you to easily organize, manage and publish your content, with an endless variety of customization.
