Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University is a public, historically black, land-grant university located in Normal, a neighborhood of Huntsville, Alabama, United States. Their Graduate Studies department was looking to increase their presence and build a more flexible and easy to use website for their Graduate Studies department.
We met with the Dean of Graduate Studies and one of their Student Admission Administrators to discuss the needs of their department. Their goal was to build a landing (micro) site to have visitors locate information in a more friendly and efficient way.
We utilized the current branding provided from the Department along with their content and media to build a WordPress microsite. The site featured an introduction letter from the Dean, a dynamic news section that was easily updated from the backend, integrated with the Department’s social media accounts and linked to important files students would need to access.
