OMAHA, Neb. – The College of Saint Mary Athletic Department has a new look online as the Flames released the launch of a redesigned website today. The website got a complete makeover and now also includes several new features.
An updated, state-of-the art layout and easier navigation were the top priorities when the athletic department began working with SIDHelp, who hosts the CSM site.
"We continue to make more positive progress towards branding Flames Athletics as a strategic goal," CSM Director of Athletics Peter Haze Haring said. "The new website design will help us enhance our branding while providing the user easier access to information on the success stories of our teams and student-athletes.
"I am very pleased with the overall design."
New features on the website include an area for a "Flames Spotlight" as well as the most recent "Flames Recruits." There is also a new "Flames Scoreboard" feature that will show CSM fans upcoming events and a scrolling "Flames Sponsors" feature at the bottom of the page is also new. An updated "Inside Athletics" tab on the menu bar now gives users more information regarding supporting the Flames and links for student-athletes to obtain information. The new site allows users to get schedules, rosters and news for each of the 10 sports faster.
"We spent a lot of time researching updated websites and – more importantly – researching what our users go to most on our website," CSM Sports Information Director Carolyn Todd Bray said. "We enhanced areas that our analytics showed us were the most popular and added features that would make our users be able to obtain some popular information quicker.
"We want the website to be an easy point of contact for College of Saint Mary athletics. We want users to keep up to date on all things Flames Athletics and we think this redesign will help with that."
