New Haven, Conn. – Albertus Magnus College in conjunction with PrestoSports has launched a redesigned athletics website. The platform, which can still be found at AlbertusFalcons.com, will continue to serve as the official home for all news information, scores, graphics and schedules for the College's 13 varsity sports teams.
"Steve Cunha put in a great deal of effort to produce this enhanced user friendly site," Albertus Magnus College Director of Athletics Jim Abromaitis said. "He solicited feedback from dozens in the campus community and as a department we are pleased with the result."
The redesigned site provides fans, parents, alumni and media with greater access to athletics news and information, including a fan zone filled with social media information, alumni spotlights, photos, an online store, live video webcasts and live and real-time statistics. The modernized, sleek look of the site features a more prominent calendar on the home page and each team's home page, a rotating banner with live links and the newly created "Meet our Student-Athletes" page.
Some other multimedia features are a rotating toolbar with a calendar, Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) standings by sport, a new video player as well as access to the Falcons' Twitter, Facebook and Instagram feeds. The redesign will improve the fans' user experience on their mobile devices and tablets as well.
"We're extremely excited to debut the new home of Albertus Magnus athletics," said Sports Information Director Steve Cunha. "The new format provides a much more streamlined way to showcase all 13 of our teams and our student-athletes. We'd like to thank Presto's Alana Dyson and the rest of her team for their hard work on this project."
The aim of the new website is to enhance the viewer experience for the more than 3,000 fans who watch our webcasts and follow us through various social media platforms.
