The landing page (shown below) features a desktop with technology and items common in today’s
world. Visitors may activate or animate certain items by moving over them with a mouse or by clicking
on the item. The page was designed to allow potential students to interactively “explore” the programs

admission information by student type, academic choices, financial aid information, campus locations,
online application, etc. There are links to the main web site and as well the College
