College Home Page Improvements

May 11, 2010

The home page of the College website has been updated to improve usability and efficiency.

Each item in the rotating promotional area now loads automatically in the background once the page is initially finished loading. Therefore, when a visitor clicks on one of the thumbnails in the promotional area, the current story will fade out and the selected story will immediately fade in, rather than having to wait for the selected story to load.

With this change, the implementation of the browser’s back and forward buttons has changed on the College home page. Visitors are now able to use the back and forward button in their browsers to navigate to and from the stories that they’ve already viewed.

Finally, the code used to implement the dynamic elements on the home page has been optimized further, reducing the amount of time it takes to initially load the page.


News Release Excerpts

Oct. 16, 2009

The home page has been updated again. This time, we have updated the way the latest news releases are displayed in the bottom-right area of the home page. In addition to the news release headline, a short excerpt from the news release is now displayed with the headline.

In addition, we now have the ability to publish these excerpts from our news releases directly to the official College Twitter account, so you can keep up with College news from within your Twitter feed.
