Wichita State hopes to impress prospectives with website
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita State University is preparing to launch a redesigned website that officials hope will ramp up efforts to recruit out-of-state students.
The Wichita Eagle reports the university looks to launch its revamped website sometime in the next week. It will feature a streamlined home page, an interactive campus map, a virtual tour and links to every major, minor and graduate degree offered at the school.
Tim Hart is the director of web and new media for the university’s office of strategic communications. He says the goal of the new home page is to reach more directly to prospective students, especially those who are outside Kansas.
Part of the school’s new marketing strategy targets Dallas, Oklahoma City, Kansas City and Tulsa, Oklahoma, as part of the “I-135 corridor.”
