New Look for Web Site
The start of a new academic year saw a number of improvements and additions made to the Transylvania Web site. Web developer Mariana Shochat worked over the summer to completely redesign the look and functionality of www.transy.edu.
In addition to enhancements that will serve all users, the Web site now features a number of changes that will be of particular help to prospective students and their families as they search for important information relevant to their college decision process.
There is a virtual tour with audio and an enlarged campus map, pop-up pages for admissions counselors have been added, the admission application now reflects a paper application, and financial aid information is organized in a subsection.
Overall upgrades include flash animation for the home page and athletics main page, new cross-links throughout the site, and an A-Z index.
“Making our Web site friendlier for all users is important, but it’s especially vital to serve the needs of prospective students,” said Sarah Emmons, director of public relations. “We know that today’s students rely on the Web as a primary source of information, and Transylvania wants to be known for having a very accessible and informative site. These improvements will help us maintain our reputation for user friendliness.”
