Two popular destinations on the Washington and Lee website have undergone facelifts in recent weeks through the work of W&L’s web communications team.
WLUR-FM unveiled its new site in the summer. In addition to links to the weekly schedule and to a list of WLUR’s Top 30 Albums, the site offers listeners several different ways to log in to WLUR on the Internet. The “Listen Now” page provides links to Windows Media Player, Quicktime, and iTunes and Winamp connections. In addition, users of smartphones or tablets are directed to the TuneIn Radio app, which allows users to stream WLUR on their mobile devices.
Earlier this month the new Campus Life site went live. The site is organized around eight different areas of campus life, ranging from Housing and Dining to Community Services to Health and Safety. One of the key features is a new blog to which members of the Student Affairs staff are contributing. Not only can you read the blogs on the website, but you can subscribe by RSS or e-mail. There is also a Twitterstream, featuring tweets from various W&L Twitter accounts.
Be sure to check out both new websites.
