New look for Seminole State's Web site

The Newsroom, the new home for Seminole State news and information.

Seminole State College has launched a new Web site to reflect its recent name change.

The redesign, the most comprehensive ever taken by the College, was completed entirely in-house by the College's telecommunications and design teams. The full redesign was rolled out on Thursday, Jan. 14.

"As Florida's newest state college, we have added the latest online resources and capabilities that will serve our current and future students well into the 21st century," says Michael Garlich, associate vice president for College Relations and Marketing. "We've streamlined navigation and added many new features adapted to today's constant-evolving technologies."

Among the features:

  • New name: Seminole State College of Florida, the College’s new name, is displayed prominently on the home page and all interior pages.
  • New colors: When selecting new colors, the College went back to its history, choosing its recognizable blue and gold hues.
  • Updated home page: The new home page includes most previous links and many new ones. Students have easy access to MyMail and MySeminoleState, with links to these sites displayed prominently at the top of the page. The Quick Links feature, which allows personal customization to  the home page menu, is also easy to find at the top of the page. The redesigned home page also spotlights the College’s growing presence on social media sites like Facebook and YouTube.
  • Interior pages: All interior pages also are incorporating the new look with an easier to read format, improved navigation and new photos.
  • The Newsroom: The new design provides a new way to get news and information about Seminole State. The Newsroom, which is linked from the home page, has improved archiving and will be updated daily with the latest news. The Newsroom also includes an expanded Collegewide calendar, with information on events for students, faculty, staff and community members. The Newsroom also includes live feeds to the College’s Twitter, YouTube and Flickr accounts.

Leading up to the conversion, the College -- through programming and hand edits -- changed more than 750,000 references to the former name (such as SCC, scc-fl.edu and MySCC). In October, the College began switching its site to the new seminolestate.edu domain name.

The Web site redesign was a joint project between Computing and Telecommunication Services Department (CTS) and College Relations and Marketing (CRM).

Seminolestate.edu has more than 15,000 pages. Leading up to the conversion, CTS reviewed 4,386 pages by hand.

Seminole State’s Web site averages more than 640,000 visits and 6 million page views per month.
