Macon, Ga. — Mercer University launched its new Web site redesign Dec. 6, unveiling the project at a meeting of its Board of Trustees. The new site features a user-friendly design, a searchable calendar of events and new information about Mercer’s four Macon undergraduate schools.
The new design allows visitors to move more easily throughout Mercer’s 10,000-page Web site. Through the use of drop-down menus, users can scan many areas of the site without having to click through several pages. A “Spotlight” section on the home page targets news and announcements to Mercer’s various audiences, including alumni, students, staff and the local community.
The site continues to offer features included in its earlier version, including online applications for admission, news releases, an e-mail search function and secure online giving.
The Web site launch marks the completion of phase one of the project, which included the new home page and redeveloped sites for the College of Liberal Arts, Stetson School of Business and Economics, Tift College of Education, School of Engineering, Department of Athletics and Office of University Admissions. Other areas of the University’s Web site will be redesigned gradually over the next year.
