We initiated a complete overhaul and redesign of our alumni website in August of 2007 and created a college-branded online community. The new sites went live in January 2008. We focused on making the site more interactive, easy to navigate and with enhanced usability and integrated social media. We have completed three web redesign updates since 2008. Our latest redesign enhancement was adding a YouTube video embed to the homepage.

Some of the new website features added were:

  • News buzz area
  • Alumni profiles
  • Photo slideshows of events
  • Online event signup
  • Add your news page
  • Connection to online community
  • Social share buttons
  • Social media feeds
  • alumni blog
  • Alumni in news page

We believe our alumni are our best ambassadors and deserve a well-designed and cutting edge website and robust online community to meet their needs. We welcome all alumni to visit and browse around the site and interact with the various features and join the online community. Feel free to contact us with any suggestions.
