Georgetown is inching ever closer to a revamped website.
Last time we checked in, they were collecting input from campus on what students and faculty wanted to see in the site’s first makeover in seven years.
Now, the Office of Communications has finished the “research and discovery phase” of their project to redesign the outdated, unavigable georgetown.edu, and has their hands on a potential outline for a the new site, which it posted on the Georgetown Website Redesign blog yesterday.
The plans, shown above, are encouraging. From the looks of things, either proposed home page will provide access to more different parts of the site than it currently does, advertising heretofore buried links like “Libraries,” “Our Schools,” “Next Admission Deadline,” “Latest Sports Scores,” and, ahem, “Make a Gift.”
For those of you titillated by Blue & Gray, it seems there will be several different ways to organize University news.
The new website isn’t perfect—one can still hold out hope that the Office of Communications will at least think about making the homepages of the different schools more uniform—but there’s only one thing that has Vox truly confused: is the text on the “Subpage” slide placeholder text, or is Jack the Bulldog really going to get a page equal in space and prominence to “Residence Life” and “Diversity on Campus”?
