University news sites - best practices - best sites!

Hi all! I am hoping soon to get our University's news site into our new Drupal CMS.  My team wants to bring several news sources into one integrated site.  This includes news, alumnae news, athletic news, the University's magazine SCAN, and our social media channels (probably through the Rebel Mouse app).  Boston University and Mizzou are two that do this really well but I'd appreciate hearing about others.  Please share!See More
