ASU Honors Program Web Site Earns National Honors
Angelo State University’s Honors Program Web site has won second place in the National Collegiate Honors Council’s (NCHC) Small College Honors Program Web site competition.
The ASU program’s Web site competed against sites from many of the more than 250 other small college Honors Programs represented at the NCHC’s 43rd annual conference Oct. 22-26 in San Antonio. Sites were judged based upon their functionality, items of information and ease of navigation.
“What makes this accomplishment that much more meaningful is that the Web site was judged by students in other Honors Programs,” said Dr. Nick Flynn, director of the ASU Honors Program. “This means that we are reaching our primary intended audience and obviously doing a good job at it.”
Nancy Larson, Honors Program officer, and Lynsey Flage, ASU director of marketing, worked on content and layout design for the site along with ASU graphic designer Bree Walker, who also completed the technical and functional design. ASU photographer Danny Meyer supplied the pictures, ASU news and information specialist Tom Nurre handled the copy editing and Flynn reviewed and approved the revised text. ASU Web development specialist Jon Wilcox assisted with the programming.
“I’m very pleased,” Flynn said, “to see the hard work of our design team be recognized at the national level, particularly considering the amount of work that went into the redesign of the Web site over the past year.”
