students and re.web

It's no secret that students are the largest and most active group of web users here at the College. Our efforts to revitalize the W&M web presence will definitely include input from the student body-- in fact mStoner will talk with more than 40 students on their first campus visit in September. About 150 individuals will meet with the consultants over the course of three days-- that means more than one-fourth of the people mStoner speaks with will be students!

Names for these one-hour group sessions have come from a variety of campus leaders who regularly interact with students. Several students who work part-time will also attend; adding to what we believe is an eclectic mix of individuals.

Grad students will get their chance to share their opinion when mStoner makes a second campus visit to work more closely with our graduate programs later this fall.

There will be many other opportunities for students to participate, including during site design and usability testing. Of course, students can always provide feedback through the re.web site-- if you have opinions or questions, all of us on the project team would love to hear from you!
