[IMAGE2]LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 3, 2010) – These days the phrase, “There’s always something going on” applies to the Student Activities Board (SAB) and their new website! SAB is excited to announce the launch of their new website www.uksab.org.
The world of social media and way students interact with online content are always changing. The decision was made to revamp SAB on the Web after realizing its Web presence was falling behind the times. By incorporating a user-friendly interface, RSS feed, varying calendar views, written content and photos with drag-and-drop share ability, the new site is now cutting-edge and user friendly.
Any photo, event or news story can be picked up with a single mouse click and dropped onto Facebook, Twitter, Buzz, Yahoo! or an e-mail. Comments and interactions involving SAB can be viewed in real time on the RSS feed so visitors always know who is updating and tweeting about one of UK’s largest student organizations.
Under tabs like “About SAB,” “Committees” and “Get Involved,” website visitors can find out about who the board is, how it is set up and how to get involved. The calendar can be seen in different formats or by specific committee to fit student preferences, and can be printed right off the Internet and pasted easily in a planner or on a wall. Every event on the calendar can be clicked on for time, location and detailed information.
The media gallery features pictures from past events, a YouTube Channel features trailers for upcoming Cheap Seats and their SAB commercial and a weather box at the bottom of the page allows you to see what Mother Nature is doing before you head out the door to an event. The front-page content and news stories are also consistently updated so it’s a virtual one-stop-shop when it comes to SAB.
“Students should check out the new website because it’s the easiest way to get information on SAB events,” said Scott Wagner, SAB director of Web design, who built the site from scratch. “The site will continue to increase in interactivity so students will want to come back to see what has changed.”
The site launched in mid-August, and with over 1,000 unique visitors to the site in the first two weeks, it’s surely a good sign of the things to come!
