Marketing & Communications

Web Development

Our website and affiliated publish sites are vital tools for broadcasting our messages, accomplishments, and identity. To keep our brand strong, we follow College logo, wordmark, color palette, typography, and photography guidelines. The voice used on the web conveys prestige, tradition of excellence, encouragement, comraderie, and doing the impossible. All without sounding boastful, elitist, cold, or unreachable. The goal of the site is to make readers feel welcome, to provide clear information, and to make navigation easy. This is done by providing the following:

  • Clear main points
  • Bulleted lists for readability
  • Short paragraphs
  • Highlighted information featuring related stories that provide depth and links to more content
  • A living communications tool that is constantly maintained and improved
