Students, Devices - Using Our Site

Using Our Site

The University's Web site provides a great deal of information for a very wide range of users. The new design allows for prospective audiences to obtain a quick snapshot of all that the University has to offer. While geared toward prospective audiences (i.e. students, alumni, faculty, staff, vendors), the site still provides categorized resource pages for current students, faculty, and staff. Information for these groups can be accessed through the "Resources For" drop down menu.
