Mercer University’s International Programs Division Launches Newly Redesigned Website
For Mercer University students looking to engage in a global education experience, the journey begins at http://international.mercer.edu/. This newly redesigned website from Macon, Georgia based internet marketing firm Third Wave Digital combines personalized multimedia presentations, Flash ® animation and intuitive navigation to create a powerful online experience for Mercer University’s International Programs Division.
For this project, the team at Third Wave Digital focused on creating a user friendly experience by providing informational videos that showcase study abroad experiences. Each video is a custom produced piece intended to show current and prospective students alike the benefits of Mercer University’s International Programs.
The site also features detailed information and videos for Mercer University’s English Language Institute – a division of International Programs that assists international students in acquiring proficiency in American English required for admission to an American college or university. Also included in the new website are a series of online communication forms; because having the right paperwork is essential for international travel, the new http://international.mercer.edu/ has downloadable forms as well as online applications to help streamline the process.
This is not the first time that Mercer University has called upon Third Wave Digital to help enhance the University’s web presence. TWD also created the multi-award winning www.gomercer.com website focused on reaching prospective students.
No stranger to creating custom solutions for higher education institutions, Third Wave Digital president Bart Campione had this to say about the new Mercer International website, “The site had several challenges that needed to be addressed in the design and development. First, we had to make sure the website was in keeping with the Mercer University image and standards. Next, we had to make sure the site could be easily consumed by non-English speaking visitors. Overall, the newly redesigned website is a vast improvement over the old site and should put Mercer’s International programs at the top of the list for international studies .”
Mercer University is one of America’s oldest and most distinctive institutions of higher learning, offering rigorous programs that span the undergraduate liberal arts to doctoral-level degrees. With more than 8,000 students enrolled in 11 schools and colleges on campuses in Macon, Atlanta and Savannah, and at three Regional Academic Centers around the state, Mercer is consistently ranked among the nation’s leading institutions by such publications as U.S. News & World Report and the Princeton Review.
