Hi everyone, and welcome back if you’ve been away.
Thanks for your comments so far about the current web site. Over the past two weeks the design team has been discussing informational models for the new homepage, a site-wide navigation bar, and secondary pages. Right now we’re asking for your feedback on a few specific questions.
First up is a proposed list of major links for the homepage. Please take a look at the following list, as a starting point. We’d love to hear what you think—especially from the point of view of a prospective student—about whether this covers a relevant range of links to page destinations within the main Wesleyan site.
- would the list help you as a prospective student wanting to know more about Wesleyan?
- are there any other categories you’d like to see included? (primary bullets)
- are there any other detail items you’d like to see? (secondary bullets)
- what could we remove from the list?
Major links list
- Why Wesleyan?
- Virtual Tour
- Middletown Area
- Notable Alumni
- Visiting Wesleyan
- Financial Aid
- Meet the Staff
- Ask a Student
- Dates and Deadlines
- Campus Life
- Residential Life
- Offices & Services
- Office of the President
- Student Affairs
(Please note: some of these pages don’t have a current equivalent and would have to be created as part of the redesign process; the list is just part of the content that will be included on the new homepage, albeit a very important part; and each of the primary bullets will be links to a full range of options, where the secondary bullets are the most popular of those.)
We will follow up soon with a similar post about the site-wide navigation bar, which will contain other links, but for now we would like to focus on the main page links.
Please share you thoughts, and thanks for your time.
