The Clayton State University Office of University Relations has launched its newly redesigned news site, The Laker Newsroom (www.clayton.edu/news).
The new site’s landing page offers news briefs, fast facts, links to campus publications, a calendar, links to official Clayton State University social media sites, contact information, and other links useful to internal and external audiences.
The redesign will help the campus and community quickly find the latest Clayton State news and be able to better stay connected to the University through a variety of interactive content.
The news brief section will update frequently and previously posted stories will be moved into a searchable archive. Visitors to the site will be greeted by a campus photo and main feature story, which will also be regularly updated. University Relations publications “Campus Review” and “The Laker Connection” magazine will also be reachable from The Laker Newsroom and are now presented in a more interactive flipping page format.
External audiences, such as the media, will find the new Media Relations tab convenient for locating experts, making campus contacts, understanding graphic identity standards, contact information for Spivey Hall and our Athletics Department, and much more.
The campus and community can understand more about the University and the function of University Relations through the “About Us” tab, where general information about Clayton State and University Relations’ staff profiles are housed.
On the social media front, The Laker Newsroom’s “Follow Us” section has links to University Relations’ maintained Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, FourSquare and Flickr accounts. There is also a link to a list of official departmental and student organization-run social media accounts.
In addition to the unveiling of The Laker Newsroom, University Relations is also launching its new Flickr account with a “Best Clayton State Fall Photo” photography contest. To review official contest rules and to upload your best fall campus photo visit http://www.flickr.com/groups/claytonstateuniversity/.
The Office of University Relations thanks the web support staff from the Office of Image & Communications for their work on implementing the redesign.
