BC Athletics Launches Website Redesign
Sept. 25, 2013
Chestnut Hill, Mass. - The Boston College athletic department unveiled a new look for its website bceagles.com on Wednesday afternoon. With input from fans, students and media, the new look features easier navigation, a cleaner design and highlights the department's social media efforts.
Some of the changes include a larger photo to accompany headlines, a schedule bar at the bottom of the page for a quick look at the current and upcoming Eagles' games and results, and drop-down menus for the men's and women's sports with quick links to the roster, schedule, news, Twitter and Facebook pages of each sport.
The page also features a live feed of every Twitter handle affiliated with the Eagles, including all teams and coaches. Each individual sports page's feed contains only that team's and coaches' accounts to make it easy to get updates and follow. Other social media efforts on bceagles.com include a rotating Instagram stream and buttons on the home page which lead to the Eagles' main accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Eagles of the Week, a new initiative which highlight an outstanding male and female student-athlete for his and her performance, is also featured on the home page. The page is also compatible on mobile devices.
