Lindenwood website has second facelift this year


More changes have been made to the official Lindenwood website.

Around seven months after the website was redesigned, adjustments are being made to the top of the home page that officials in web content said will make the user experience much easier.

Currently, a drop-down menu near the top of the page asks users to choose whether they are a current student, prospective student or other classification. Based on that selection, they will be given a number of options, like access to email, the student portal or other pages. Those options currently appear below the Lindenwood logo on the page.

On the new website, instead of the changing options, access to email, the portal and canvas will be static options that appear right next to the drop-down menu, no matter what choice is made.

Director of Marketing Scott Queen said the decision to make these changes was made after soliciting opinions from students and staff, as well as taking into account complaints they had been hearing around the campus.

The changes came early Monday morning around 9 a.m.
