A virtual facelift

Excuse my absence on the blog this week.  Our office has been doing a lot of behind-the-scenes preparation for a few big events that will happen over the next four weeks.

Anyone watching the College of Charleston through the next semester will see a whole new virtual university emerge.  The first overhaul you’ll see is our website.  The smallest change is our address: we’re moving from cofc.edu/gradschool to gradschool.cofc.edu.  The biggest is the launch of our new website.  Thanks to the hard work of IT, Marketing and countless others, the website is in beta release and should go live by August 10. Want a sneak peak?

Students, faculty and staff will see another change, and that’s a replacement of CougarTrail with the MyCharleston portal.  Everyone, including applicants, will be able to access “information and services previously limited by location or hours of operation.

homepageWhile we’re all incredibly excited about these changes, it takes a lot of work from just about everyone on campus. Susan and Regan, our directors of admissions and student records respectively, have been in countless hours of meetings and training sessions.  While I haven’t been in nearly as many meetings, I have been working on making sure the graduate school’s website is ready for the proposed August 10 launch.

With all of these meetings, I wonder who’s been planning the big launch party, and if sparklers will be involved? Or how large the scissors will be.

    GOOD! Maybe it’ll make it easier to find postings for Faculty openings! 🙂 I can never remember the 203 links I have to click to get there 🙂
