Officials at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) are pleased to announce the launch of their fully-featured website. The site officially launched Monday, Feb. 23 and features a new design with a fresh look and is more focused on the end-users’ needs. “Website redesign evolves much like technology changes. A redesign is standard every two to three years to keep up with the newest trends based on the behaviors of the individuals seeking information,” Bunch said. “Our focus for this website goes with the trends of new students, existing students and parents. Everything else that was not essential to these three core groups we moved off to an intranet site or moved it out of the forefront. We hope you are pleased with the end result as we are.”
The new website features the reorganization of webpages, a less congested homepage, navigation ease for new visitors and an updated design. The website has been a work-in-progress for more than a year. College President Dr. Jeff Hale appointed a committee of faculty and staff to spearhead the website overhaul project. Leading the committee meetings were Kim Bunch, NEO’s chief information officer, and David Frazier, webmaster and graphic designer. “A dynamic web presence is critical to success in the highly competitive higher ed market,” Hale said. “Kim Bunch and David Frazier deserve much credit for the new and improved NEO website along with our faculty and students who provided timely and useful feedback. I am very pleased with our collective effort and excited about the new launch.”
NEO’s Information Technology staff arranged multiple meetings on campus with different departments as well as Student Body Government. The meetings served as a preview of the new site, as well as an opportunity for faculty, staff and students to give feedback before the website went live. NEO’s website is designed to assist new students, parents, current students, faculty and staff navigate with ease to find the admissions page, financial aid, and D2L, the College’s primary online teaching tool, plus so much more. The website focuses on multiple end-users or audiences. As part of its objective to provide critical information to students and parents who are shopping around for colleges, NEO is proud to introduce the new design that will serve as one of the college’s leading recruitment tools.
