12 Best Designed College Websites

In the past, educational websites would tend to be long, dry, and busy with information. This left users feeling lost and frustrated, leading them away from the website. Today, some college websites go beyond the standard two-column and three-column layout; they have come a long way from the boxy look and feel of websites past. Some have even branched out different departments within their school into their own separate, independent website. Current and prospective students no longer have to navigate through multiple pages to seek the information they need, they are treated to responsive versions of websites and parallax effects. Some of these sites also offer big visuals with large photos and animated transitions. This works well when reaching out to a younger demographic who are looking to be impressed and enticed to join their school.
