Tufts.edu is sporting a chic new look this morning, unveiling changes that the University says it has been working on for a year. In addition to redesigning the look of the page with more easily navigable links and slick news, events, and "tagged" popups, the internal content of the site has been reorganized in a more visitor-friendly way.
Unlike the old site, the pages feel like they now belong to a cohesive whole of the tufts.edu website, which used to feel more like a launch pad for more individual sites like the Undergraduate college or as an unnecessary middle step on route to the Admissions page.
The campus map, Faculty, Offices and Services, and academic programs sections are all now more interactive and searchable, and no longer buried deep within the site. There are also easy to find link lists for current and prospective students, as well as information about the surrounding Somerville, Medford, and Boston communities.
