Loyola's website gets a refresh
Loyola press release - July 14, 2008
Loyola University New Orleans unveiled an excitingly redesigned homepage (http://www.loyno.edu) on Thursday, July 10. The new website, which features an easy to use navigation system, is designed to be more user-friendly, versatile and modern.
The improved website gives predominant placement of Loyola’s programs and Jesuit foundation. The site also allows for interactive features, including an RSS news feed, student blogs and multimedia clips.
Also receiving an updated look is the Loyola Public Affairs Newsroom webpage. This area includes current Loyola news and facts, media policies, news archives, public affairs staff information, and an expert source directory for Loyola’s faculty and staff.
Another exciting electronic addition to Loyola’s Public Affairs’ services is LoyNews, a weekly electronic newswire sent to local, regional and national news media that shares the latest news and information about the university and the many accomplishments of its students, faculty and employees.
The web team conducted student focus groups and talked to members throughout the Loyola community to find out what they liked and did not like about the previous version of the website. Many stated that the previous website could be useful, but only if you already knew which office or department page to go to. The goal of the new redesign is to make the whole site more user friendly, and features a new navigation system.
While the homepage has a refreshed look, the remainder of the website will continue to undergo changes and updates as the year progresses. For the latest about Loyola University New Orleans, visit the homepage frequently.
LoyNews is an e-newswire produced by the Loyola University New Orleans Office of Public Affairs. LoyNews is distributed weekly to local, regional and national news media outlets, communicating the latest news and accomplishments of the university and its community.
