Willamettes Website is Changing

Web Site [screen capture]This is the first of three phases of development for Willamette University's new and improving website. Phase one was designed to make the site easier to use and more appealing. Content changes will follow in later phases, and will be ongoing.

We've completely revamped the navigation system to make it easier for you to find what you need with as few clicks as possible. We've also added a brighter and more colorful look to better reflect the essence of Willamette. You'll notice these modifications on our homepage, and on many of the pages linked from there.

We have not implemented these design and navigational changes throughout the whole site as yet. We wanted to give you an opportunity to view it in an early stage of development and give us your thoughts on how we can better design it to meet your needs. Ultimately, we want the site to be comfortable as well as functional - a place you'll want to come back to and visit again.

Below the newly designed pages, you'll find the remainder of the Willamette web pages, unchanged. Updating these pages, as well as adding additional functionality and content changes to the site, will take place after we've evaluated our web visitors' comments and suggestions. You'll be able to navigate through the site as normal, using your "Back" and "Forward" browser buttons at the upper left of your screen.

Enjoy the site. Give it a test drive. Check out the new Quick Jump button in the upper-left corner. Email us at new-web@willamette.edu to let us know what you think we can do to improve things even more. And for those of you who aren't that familiar with Willamette yet, make sure you click on the loudspeaker icon on the right of our homepage to hear how to say our name just like a "real Oregonian."
