4.1.2 College Home Page Template

Based on research and user input, UNG is now implementing more standardized home pages across our units. For college home pages, the basic required information is listed and explained below. If a particular item does not apply to your college or the programs within it, it may be skipped.

Use people who work in the college or students of the college - no clip art showing non-UNG people.Use people from the college - no clip art. A photo shoot for the college can also be considered. You can also choose to have an image from a pre-selected group randomly inserted here each time the page is published.

A brief paragraph of conversational and audience focused text that speaks to ‘You’. What does the college offer students, in way of faculty, experiences, etc… that sets  it apart from its competitors? Avoid institutional slang and acronyms. Seed the paragraph with those words you think people will search with to find the college page. Approximate size: 600 characters

Clear Proof Points or Call to Action

Proof Points: Nuggets of information to show where/how the college excels (optional but recommended.)

Calls to Action: What do you want prospective students to do once they are on the home page? Give site visitors a clear path to the actions you want them to complete and/or the key information you want them to find. Especially important for mobile viewers.
