New Website Alert! SEAS and Student Affairs get Bluer, Whiter

Written by

Two of Columbia’s major websites have just received extreme makeovers – the SEAS site, whose color scheme and photo-of-new-dean remind visitors of Columbia College, and the Student Affairs site (shown above), which reminds the administration of its promise to render the entire Morningside Campus in 2D.

Major overhauls in PR are never taken lightly at Columbia, and dissenters to the new designs surely abound; however, both new websites feature several indisputable improvements over their previous versions.  For example, they each employ a number of nifty animations – most notably, the Student Affairs homepage now features a fitting background of clouds traveling listlessly across the screen (the sky, of course, a ringing blue).  And while it may take some getting used to, the sites are well-organized and easier to navigate than ever.  So on behalf of our administrators and Brad Paisley, welcome to the future.

    the artwork. Superb job, unknown anonymous artist.
    And the website: Note the "Answers" tab. My god, they're trying to be more responsive to students? I don't believe it.

    Yes, thank you Student Affairs for dealing with the most press complaint we have about you - your website wasnt flashy enough.

    The administration just doesn't get it, does it. The systemic problems that plague the bureaucracy and goes deep into its foundation can't be fixed with a coat of paint and CSS.

    The entire division needs to be rethought from the ground up, with serving students as clients or customers of the school, not products to be churned out on a strict 4 year schedule.

    Student Affairs would rather show Fairchild than Lerner on its front page?

  6. the clouds  

    makes me think I'm playing SNES Mario.

    Also, isn't it just a little disturbing that the west half of campus fell off the screen?
