staff, faculty, and students were invited this past January to an
unveiling of the new Taylor website. Barbara North (outgoing Director
of Communications) hosted the event during which Drs. Dewey, Williams,
and Leverette showcased each of the new sections. Since you’re reading
this, presumably you’ve received your own taste of the new site,
and we hope you’re already enjoying the new look and feel.
The first thing that catches the eye are
the modern lines and colours. As you navigate the various menus
and sections of the site, it becomes quickly apparent that much
thought has gone into issues of readability, convenience, and efficiency.
There are still the familiar three sections—University College,
Seminary, and About Taylor (previously Taylor Friends)—but each
is coordinated with the others to provide a seamless experience
of quick and convenient navigation.
For alumni I recommend that each visit
to the site involve three things. First, make sure that you follow
the links to the
section where you’ll find the most up-to-date information relevant
to graduates and other past students of Taylor. You should link
Alumni Newsroom page while you are there and catch up on the
different goings-on of your fellow alumni and the Alumni Relations
While in the Newsroom, make sure to check
main page where other news relating to school can be found.
Finally, head back to the
Updates and Directory area where you can log in and/or submit an update
to Alumni Relations for inclusion in the directory, and in the next
issue of the Online Bridge (e-mail
a password request to Alumni Relations if you do not have a
Directory password). Although you should receive an e-mail
whenever a new issue of the Online Bridge is released, do remember
to check and make sure that you have indeed seen the latest issue.
Having said all this, please remember that
the new website is still a work in progress, with much tweaking,
updating, and reorganization left to do. For that reason, we hope
you’ll come back often to experience the most recent changes. If
you notice links that are broken, pages that don’t load properly,
or other anomalies that ought to be brought to our attention, please
do not hesitate to contact
Alumni Relations (regarding the alumni section) or the
webmaster for all other website issues.
Thank you for your patience as we’ve been
putting the new site together and thank you for visiting Taylor
