In case you haven’t noticed, Aquinas College has a new website! The entire community thanks U.S. Digital Partners for their hard work and guidance through the daunting process.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Jan. 29, 2013) — Aquinas College is proud to announce the launch of its new website. After several months in development, the new website, at aquinascollege.edu, was unveiled over the weekend. The new site provides a refreshed design, improved navigation, integrated news and calendaring, mobile and tablet friendly functionality, and a robust content management system.
After an extensive search for a suitable vendor, the Aquinas website task force selected U.S. Digital Partners of Cincinnati, Ohio. “They were the best fit for us and for what we wanted to achieve.” said Ron Kerman, Director of Marketing and Communications at Aquinas. “The company’s co-founder and website project leader, David Brecount and his team exceeded our expectations in integrated delivery, professionalism, and respect for the mission of Aquinas College.”
David was thrilled to be working with Aquinas: “Helping such an impressive Catholic institution shine in our age of interactive marketing is the kind of challenge we are always looking for. We are providing the college with the right tools so they can more effectively tell their own story.”
After a long review of other companies’ experience and capabilities, “We decided on USDP because they were just superior in every way,” stated the web site manager, Paul Downey, who oversaw and managed the website development on the Aquinas end. “They were really easy to work with and responded to our every need and concern.”
U.S. Digital Partners has worked with other Catholic institutions in the past, including the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Brecount remarked, “The Church has the best content in the world, but has fallen short in its delivery. I’d like to change that with the projects we work on.”
In addition to the website, Aquinas also worked with U.S. Digital Partners on creating a fresh look for the college’s logo. The crest features a stylized cross and shield, common elements in Dominican heraldry.
Sister Mary Sarah, O.P., president of Aquinas College, sees the grander design. “This new website reflects the College’s vision for the future. With the addition of graduate studies and residential life last fall, this new communications’ tool will help us reach a national and international audience to accomplish our goals.”
