I don't know Wordpress so I can't compare.  IMO, with Drupal you can add some 
amazing functionally with zero programming. 

In my University of Arizona department, I work with 30-40 non-technical users 
who can enter information easily and find drupal intuitive.

How does Drupal differ from Wordpress. I mess with websites endlessly but my 
brain balks at programming. I can do simple css styles but that's about it. 
Wordpress works for me, but I don't think there is a good calendar module for 

And unlike a Wiki, it is harder for other people to enter information. We have 
a GoogleSites wiki that almost anyone can  update. The page for adding info to 
Wordpress is a bit confusing - first the person has to decide between a page 
and a post. That is confusing.
