Third Wave Digital Creates New Website for Shorter University Admissions

  (January 22, 2013)

Rome, GA (PRWEB) January 22, 2013

Todays graduating seniors are more connected to technology than ever before, resulting in a need for sophisticated recruitment tools for colleges and universities alike. With the constant motion of student recruitment, it is necessary to have ever evolving admissions tools that engage and quickly inform prospective students. This was the case for the Office of Admissions at Shorter University, which today announced the launch of their latest student recruitment tool admissions.shorter.edu.

Boasting over 15 minutes of interactive student led video tours, admissions.shorter.edu gives prospective students a chance to explore and experience Shorter University without stepping foot on campus. Each student virtual campus tour features links to related topics and pages, and personalized photo galleries. The entire experience is also available on mobile devices with custom coded HTML and javascript presentations for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

The multimedia content of the new site allows prospective students to experience Shorter for themselves, said Patrick McElhaney, Director of Admissions. The videos feature current students sharing the various aspects of university life and the reasons they chose Shorter.
This redesigned admissions website, admissions.shorter.edu, features eight video tours that provide an overview of the Shorter University experience. Topics include: All about Shorter, Academics, Faith, Campus Life, Residence Life, Athletics, Service in Action, and Learning Communities. Shorter Universitys admissions website also includes dynamic content that links the page directly to the universitys official Twitter and Facebook feeds.


Our aim with the new site is to the streamline the admissions process for prospective students and to give them the information to match their needs at each step along the way, said McElhaney.

Third Wave Digital provided full integration with Shorter Universitys recruitment and retention platform (Jenzabar). This allows prospective students to view customized content on the website as they move through each state of the recruitment funnel at Shorter.

Shorter Universitys new website not only allows students to view tours from the students perspective but to also have a birds eye view of the campus using an interactive campus map: admissions.shorter.edu/map. With this map, prospective students can easily performs searches, zoom in and out, and click on individual building to get a description, photos and related links. With this powerful tool, future students can familiarize themselves with campus before their first day of school.

Developed by Third Wave, this higher education recruitment website, featuring college marketing tools is instrumental to helping Shorter reach their recruitment and marketing goals.

"The team at Third Wave Digital did a great job helping us tell the Shorter University admission story in an engaging, accessible way," said Dawn Tolbert, associate vice president for university communications at Shorter. "From creating the website's interactive design to scripting, filming, and editing the video tours, Third Wave provided a great customer experience that resulted in a first-rate website for our institution."

This new admissions website, admissions.shorter.edu, comes equipped with a full back-end Content Management System (CMS) that allows Shorter Universitys administrators to easily add or edit the websites content and images, as well as create new pages as the site continues to grow. This custom CMS from Third Wave Digital allows Shorter University to grow their web presence long after the sites launch. Third Wave Digital also provides full hosting and support services for admissions.shorter.edu.
