Anselm.edu is designed with many features to help us tell our Anselmian story, including a special feature for our 125th Anniversary Site. 125 years from our founding, we are proud to be Anselmians, and we look forward to exploring our historic past and celebrating our bright future throughout this very special anniversary year. You can view some other features, below, to help you navigate our homepage and entire site.
The navigation of the site provides the best user experience for our community and visitors. Our header prominently links to our social media hub - and a callout to support Saint Anselm College.
Our "heroes" area is the primary storytelling space on the homepage of Anselm.edu. Click through the images using the arrows to the left and right of the images to view feature our best content from across the site. The hero area can feature images, or dynamic content - such as video.
Anselmian Information Hub
On the lower part of the homepage is our hub for campus news, events and scores - and pretty much anything else we want to highlight. Directly below our "heroes" slider is an interchangeable media hub, which consistently feature news and events from the campus calendar - and the ability to change out college blog posts, athletic scores, and just about anything else an Anselmian would need to know.
Social Media Display & "Floating Feature"
Continuing down the homepage, you will encounter a (very cool) sliding photo that we regularly update to highlight our best shots from around campus. Below that you'll find our latest social media postings and a "floating feature" to the right. Typically, we'll link to our academic offerings, but you'll see it used for other purposes from time to time.
Our robust search engine remains positioned in the header of every page. It's often the most efficient way of finding information on the site. The search box is located in the top right corner of every page in the site. Type the information you're seeking into the box and click "Go!"
In the bottom right corner in the footer of each page you will continue to find "My Links."
Click on "My Links" in footer, a list of links will appear. Select your links by moving them from the right to the left side of the box. Once you are satisfied, save your selection. A "cookie" is then assigned to your computer noting your link preferences. They'll be listed in the footer the next time you visit the site.
The site continues to features the ability to "share" content by email or on dozens of social media sites.
Simply, click the "Share" button and choose to e-mail or send the page to any of the listed sites.
Anselm.edu is the college's largest communications vehicle and information source. The site originally launched in 2003. The importance of Web communications compelled the college to redesign the site and select a new content management system beginning in summer 2008. During the course of the redesign project, multiple committees were formed to assist with generating an RFP, vendor and CMS selection. The project was led by the Office of College Communications and Marketing. BarkleyREI of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, provided project discovery, strategy, design and development assistance for the project.
Our latest refresh of the homepage, implementation of the campus map, and updating of style sheets for the entirety of anselm.edu was led by Ologie of Columbus, Ohio. The project was completed in September of 2012.
The Web site is run on an Ingeniux content management system (CMS). Ingeniux is based in Seattle, Washington.
