NASHVILLE, TN— Welch College launched its new website on Tuesday, January 15, to replace the former “fwbbc.edu” url, according to Josh Owens, director of media and marketing. The new site combines aesthetics with easy-to-navigate menus and will be the hub for all things Welch College. The new site can be found at www.welch.edu.
Visitors can access all information on the site with a simple scroll and click. Prospective students will find admission and financial aid information, as well as helpful data about campus life and the surrounding Nashville area, all conveniently located and easily accessed.
Josh Owens said, “In a world of ever-changing technology being accessed daily by prospective students, faculty, staff, alumni, and donors, Welch College needed a new footprint on the web. We only have one chance to make a first impression, and our old site did not allow us to make the most of that opportunity.”
The new site is designed to do just that. From the brilliant blue and gold themed pages to the pictures depicting student life, to the efficient design, the college’s new website will make a positive impression on visitors.
While the new site is a major leap forward in aiding prospective students as they make their college decision, it will also be a breath of fresh air for current students, parents, faculty and staff members, and the extended Welch College family. Visitors to the site will have access to up-to-date news and events occurring at the college including the latest press releases and athletics information. Students will also find handy links to the Populi student information system as well as contact data for professors and staff members.
“Since July 2012, the college has updated its social media platforms (Facebook, twitter, instagram) to better communicate the happenings at Welch College,” Owens said. “The new website is the last and largest element needed to complete our media upgrade. Users will find the site very informative and easy to navigate.”
President Matt Pinson said, “It’s exciting that Welch College has a new website to match its new name. I look forward to how this change–the first new website in a decade–will help us communicate our mission more effectively to all interested visitors.”
