Under the “Current Students” tab the following recommendations were made:


  • Under “Academics”, remove the links to counseling, bookstore, library, and student web services. __Reply: Okay.__
  • Under “Academics”, make the following language changes – rename planners to program planners, rename department to course areas, rename programs to program offerings, rename schedules to course schedules and rename advising to academic advising. __Reply: Okay, except for the department link. We're not sure what we're doing there yet__
  • It is recommended that bookstore and library have their own links under “Current Students”. __Reply: Okay, and they will each have two choices on the cascading menu.__
  • Under “Current Students” remove “news and events”. __Reply: Okay.__
  • Under “Current Students” change “Policy and Legislation” to “Policies”. __Reply: Okay.__
  • Student Handbook should have its own link under “Current Students” __Reply: We're going to leave it as is for now.__
  • Under the “Records and Registration” pages change “Online Services” to “Web Services” and remove the link to “Student Services”. __Reply: Okay for part one, not yet for part two.__
  • Under “Student Life” - no drop down menu, just link to home page. __Reply: Nope. There needs to be a cascading menu, so we will add a couple of direct links to other Student Life pages.__
  • Under “Technical Services” have the “Computer Services” link go directly to “Student Support” and move the “Software Support” link to that page. Also remove “Web and Information Services”. __Reply: We will make a few changes to this menu to try to make it more informative for students.__
  • Under “Current Students” add a link to “Student Services” to include the following pages in the drop down menu: I think this one requries more discussion. Students don't use our language, "they don't live in our silos." If you say "student services" to a student, they think it means everything. They think it includes student payments, tutoring, bookstore, and every other service that they need and use. 3/7/06 BD
    • Advising
    • Counseling
    • Center for Student Development
    • Disabilities
    • Intercultural Services
    • Student Life
    • Student Support Services
    • Learning Center
    • Child Care
    • Health Services
    • Student Employment
    • Wellness Center
    • Cafeteria

We have included this one but still have to deal with the fact that we can't expect students to understand how we put things in silos. We will also continue to develop an "All Services" listing over the next few weeks. 3/14/06 BD
