GLASTONBURY, Conn., Aug. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Finalsite, the leader in web solutions for more than 2,000 schools worldwide, has launched a new, responsive website for Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana.
Susan E. Miller, Bethel College's Director of Web Strategy, shared, "We had been using a site that was built using MODX, and had outgrown its functionality. We selected Finalsite, in part, because of their design-first approach. Rather than having to select a design firm and then make that design work with a new content management system, Finalsite created a design that reflects our school's mission and culture."
Launched this month, Bethel College's new site will serve the school's 1,500+ graduate and undergraduate students, and will be an online admissions tool to reach prospective students in Indiana and across the country.
Aiming to reach prospective students online and on social media, the college sought a robust tool to support them, while balancing departmental needs for ease of use and limited staffing. "Our current site didn't have a way to incorporate social media posts," Susan shared. "With Finalsite Feeds, we can easily pull that content into key site pages. And, we know that about half of our site visitors are coming to us on mobile devices; our new site will be mobile-friendly, a huge plus when reaching high school students. And, Finalsite's easy-to-use CMS, Composer, is going to free up my time to be more strategic in my overall communication efforts."
