New Year, New Look: NDNU Launches New Website

You may have noticed that the university website ( received a bit of a facelift earlier this month! Over the weekend of January 11, the website switched to its new, more user-friendly look.

The website redesign project, which involved changing the graphic elements of the site as well as migrating it to a content management system (CMS), took a little over a year to complete. The project was managed by alumna Claire Karoly Ard '10, who works in the Communications Office, and completed with the assistance of current students Paulina Akiona, Rachel Geibig and Jhoeanna Mariano.

The redesign aimed to keep the website fresh in an environment where other university websites are constantly changing "Redesigning the site means we won't get left in the dust," explained Karoly Ard. "The new design replaces a more cluttered look with a clean, functional and fun one that aligns with the university's other marketing materials."

The navigation of the site was also changed in an effort to make it much more user-friendly. Some of the content got a major upgrade, other pages received minor tweaks, and we removed redundant and outdated content. The ultimate goal with the new site is to deliver the information needed in an efficient and enjoyable manner.

Alumni still have their own section of the website, which can be reached by following the "Alumni" link at the top of the site. You can get more information about upcoming events, read and submit class notes, and view alumni photos.

We welcome feedback on the new website, and will to do what we can to improve the website experience. To submit feedback, please visit NDNU's website feedback link (which can be found in the Quick Links in the footer of the site).
