New will debut tonight

Georgetown’s new website will launch tonight, ending an 18-month redesign process. The redesign is the first change made to the University’s website since 2002.

“We have worked with many members of the university community for more than a year to develop the structure, content and technical infrastructure to support the new site,” Julie Green Bataille, university vice president for communications, wrote in an email to students, faculty, and staff. “The new site provides navigational paths that reflect user behavior, multimedia content and ways for users to engage with Georgetown online more directly.”

The website features an interactive campus map, videos, and a footer bar customized for different audiences. However, pages specific to a school or department will not be affected by the transition, which will only apply to the website’s “top tier.”

University Information Services employees will begin the transition at 10 p.m.

  1. do you think the reason for the seal being so big is that Georgetown is trying to hard to improve its branding? like everyone knows the harvard H and the harvard seal it is classic. The Penn P, or the yale seal, not as much.

    Maybe a smart move. The G is taken like 9 times over, and a bulldog lacks the ivory tower appeal. try and get the Georgetown seal recognizable. get it to mean something.
