NIU Today refreshes homepage

January 19, 2011

Web browser 'refresh' iconNIU Today — your guide to what’s going on campus and in the campus community — has unveiled several changes to its homepage for the spring semester.

Among new features along the right column:

  • Huskie Bus Tracker link
  • Local Google weather
  • A customized tab box including Latest News, Popular and Tags
  • Randomly selected videos

Other new additions include a photo stream that randomly displays only one row of images from NIU Today photo set, lists of story categories that appear at the bottom of every homepage post and a clear link to the page along the top of the screen.

Readers can display their own NIU-related photographs on NIU Today.

“We encourage anyone in the Huskie community who likes to take photos on and around campus to open a flickr account and submit to our group pool,” said Holly Nicholson, social media specialist for NIU’s Web Communications Team. “Flickr will direct you to your photo stream, where you can select the photos you’d like to add.”
