From 2011 CCCU Conference on Technology:
Your website is most often a prospective student's first impression of the quality of your institution. Not only does it need to be visually attractive, but it needs to have all the features they are expecting — an online application, campus visit requests, cost calculators, online catalogs, etc. — and of course you need to do this on a tight budget. Drupal to the rescue. Drupal is an open-source content management system (CMS) that is robust and flexible. In this session we will demonstrate the power of Drupal, look at some pre-built distributions built on Drupal, and provide you with a list of resources to get you started.
