During this holiday break I'm going to be purchasing a domain name and migrating a University department's WordPress.com blog over to either WordPress.org or Blogger. I need help deciding which (Wordpress.org or Blogger) will be the best way to go based on the blog's needs and the capabilities of its authors.

I need to have some flexibility with adding and displaying features such as Google Calendars, Flickr photo streams, Twitter & RSS feeds, and YouTube or UStream. The Google Calendar is the most important.
I'm prepared to purchase the domain and hosting, installing wordpress, etc., but I don't want to go that route if it's going to be time-consuming and difficult to integrate and use all the features. Blogger already has the templates and integration features I need, but it's a new platform for the authors to get used to, and it may not be a good solution in the long-term.
As you can probably tell, I'm more comfortable/familiar with Blogger. I'm happy to learn CSS, but I don't want to spend the entire break tearing apart and building up code. And I certainly don't want to hit a wall wrt feature integration, where I end up sorry that I started going down a certain route.
What do you suggest?
(I'm happy to provide more info and answer questions related to this; thanks!)
