NGU Launches New Website

 

Tigerville SC (June 4, 2016) North Greenville University has launched a brand new official website that is more visual, navigable, and engaging.

NGU's website originally launched in 1996, and it has continued to progress over the years. Its latest incarnation better meets the needs of modern-day users in both style and function, even on mobile devices.

One of the first changes that visitors to ngu.edu will notice is the high-quality video of NGU's main campus that loops on the homepage, provided by NGU alumnus Chris Brank and his company Let People See. Shots range from football games to NGU's breathtaking landscape to worship services and even art and science classes in action, and they help capture the spirit of NGU.

The visual focus continues throughout the website, with header images of actual NGU faculty, staff, and students in their element on every page, as well as pictorial and graphic icons to help users navigate their way around the site.

In general, the improved NGU website features clearer and more visible menus, as well as a handy A-Z index page, where users can find just what they need.

Site visitors who are looking to learn more about the academic offerings at NGU can now browse by major, department, or even college.

Other new features on ngu.edu include a prominent news feed and master calendar on the homepage. Those interested in keeping up-to-date with NGU can also subscribe to The Insider, so they never miss a story or event.

Easy-to-find call-to-action buttons at the bottom of every webpage also help prospective students request more information, plan their next visit, apply, or contact NGU's Office of Admissions.

"Our hope is to provide a more user-friendly, easy-to-read, well-organized, interactive website for our campus community," says LaVerne Howell, assistant vice president of the Marketing and Communications (MAC) team at NGU.

Since its formation in Fall 2015, the MAC team has been re-creating NGU's website, among other projects. Members are pleased to invite the NGU family, and also friends of the university, to visit and enjoy the new ngu.edu. 

NGU's website originally launched in 1996, and it has continued to progress over the years. Below, you can see how it has changed with time:
