HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University has launched an electronic brochure to enhance its student recruitment efforts.
The Web-based brochure can be viewed at www.selu.edu/ebrochure.
“Most prospective students today are evaluating colleges and universities, at least in part, by their on-line presence,” said Tammy Bourg, Southeastern provost and vice president for academic affairs. “In addition to our general Web site, which provides comprehensive details on all aspects of the university, we wanted to have an on-line brochure that gives prospective students a quick overview of Southeastern.”
The new Web site includes pages that address general information and “quick facts” about the university, including information about admissions, financial aid, tuition and fees. Also included are brief academic department-by-department profiles and pages dedicated to student organizations, athletics and general student life.
“We recognize that today’s students want information that is on-line and easily retrievable,” said Jeff Rhodes, dean of enrollment management. “We designed this site to achieve that goal, providing links that students can go to for additional information.”
The new site eventually will replace the university’s traditional “viewbook,” which was generally used at high school recruiting visits and in response to inquiries.
“Our restricted state budgets were certainly a factor in making this move,” said Rhodes, noting the change will save a significant printing expense. “The new Web site can be easily changed and updated as warranted.”
