BELMONT ABBEY COLLEGE
Website Design | WordPress | Hosting & Support
Belmont Abbey College, a Catholic liberal arts institution in North Carolina, is one of our busiest clients. When they felt it was time to revamp their website, we rolled up our sleeves and got to work.
Belmont Abbey College wanted to use their new site to establish themselves a national player on the college scene, reflect their academic strengths, and present the Benedictine character of the school.
A website packed with information can overwhelm a visitor. So we structured each new page to show the most relevant information quickly and clearly. After just a few minutes, a visitor can navigate this large, complex site like a pro.
The new visual cues highlight key qualities of the campus experience, academics, sports and spirituality that distinguish the Abbey from other colleges. It’s fun to browse, and you’ll find all the practical information intact.
We built a number of key features in the new site.
First, we built a Pathfinder tool into the homepage. Users can distill hundreds of pages down to a customized menu. Any visitor – prospective student, current student, parent or alumnus — can quickly find what’s most relevant to them.
Second, we featured student testimonials around the site. Since Belmont alumni have great things to say, we let them speak for themselves. As a result, visitors feel like they’re meeting students as they tour the school virtually.
Third, we selected images to reflect the diversity of students and the campus atmosphere, where students not only prepare for their careers but pray in the Adoration chapel and join the Benedictine monks for daily Mass.
- The professional-looking, easy-to-navigate site lends credibility to Belmont Abbey College. The more comfortable people feel on the website, the more comfortable they feel about the school.
- Visuals and testimonials convey the warmth of this close-knit liberal arts college community.
- The updated look retains the unique character of Belmont Abbey College.
