Cuesta College debuted a new look for its website,, this week.

“We wanted to give the website a fresh look and make it easier for students and community members to find the information they’re looking for,” said Lana Rauch, Cuesta’s electronic communications designer.

A campus web committee and a team from various departments have been busy for more than a year planning navigation, preparing content and building web pages for the September launch. The last redesign of the site was in 2004.

The home page incorporates a style becoming more popular with colleges and universities that allows visitors to quickly find the information they’re seeking. They can easily see which of three categories: current and future students, business and community members or those seeking general information about the college.

Another trend is to repeat popular content throughout an educational institution’s site, such as degrees and certificates, campus maps and Class Finder, a web feature that provides students real-time updates on class availability during registration.
