Homepage Design Update

April 23rd, 2014

If you check the OSU home page after Friday, April 25, you might sense there’s something different. It’s not your mind playing tricks on you. We’ve made a complete overhaul of the design and structure.

While it looks much like the previous version of our site, there are quite a few changes. A host of accessibility upgrades have been made. The site is now responsive, meaning it adapts to the desktop and various mobile devices more readily. The top menu links are now in individual drop downs instead of one large expandable menu.

We’re planning a new design for the home page for the fall, but we wanted to make sure our interim home page performs as well as possible while that new design is in the works.

If you have any questions or comments about the new page, drop us a note.

    Why does the web page not open up to the OSU website for current students? Even though I have been using the new format for a while, it still does not go directly there. And this means it is not quite so convenient to access email.

    Hi Pamela,

    We’ve recently updated the site and added more links to the current students page. Thanks for the feedback…it helps us know what our users find challenging.

    I liked the other one better. Change is bad. Somebody pooped in my cornflakes.
