Saint Xavier unveils new Web site: www.sxu.edu

New SXU site even easier to browse

Chicago (Oct. 31, 2008) –Saint Xavier University’s new public Web site is now online at http://www.sxu.edu. Reorganized pages designed for prospective students, parents, alumni and community members are now even easier to browse. Custom gateway pages and a powerful new search function provide the quick access visitors need most when learning about the University. 

“A Web site is the ‘front porch’ of any 21st century institution,” said SXU Vice president for University Relations Robert Tenczar. “We encourage everyone to be our guest, visit our new site and learn more about Saint Xavier. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make bring this project into fruition.” 

SXU moved all internal functions to its new intranet site, which houses many of the tools students, faculty and staff use on the existing Web site, to guarantee a streamlined browsing experience.

The intranet site will have a personalized portal page, reorganized content and better search capabilities. Additionally, the portal page offers customizable news, events and Web links tailored specifically for the user.

Beyond Internet and intranet pages, SXU Information Services has teamed with Google to provide students with a robust new e-mail system powered by Gmail, which will also go online Nov. 1. Each new MyMail account will provide more than six gigabytes of storage from famously reliable Google servers.
