MANCHESTER, N.H. – The official website of Southern New Hampshire University athletics (www.snhupenmen.com) re-launched Thursday morning with a brand new design. The website was redesigned by PrestoSports (www.prestosports.com) and features a clean, modern look with standout features and similar navigation to easily access information on all 20 Penmen teams.
In addition to an all-new design, the updated website also has several new features that will assist fans, alumni, students, parents and athletes in following the Penmen, while maintaining favorites like the photo store, E-newsletters, Penmen in the community and the search function.
TOP STORY "ROTATOR" – Gone is the traditional one-photo-at-a-time top story rotator and in its place is a four-photo collage that allows visitors to see the top four headlines all at once, while also enjoying the excellent images you have come to expect. On the sport-specific pages, we have worked in a "Next Game" box into the rotator so you can easily check when your favorite team plays again.
SOCIAL MEDIA – Social media played a more prominent role in the last re-design and we gave it a more featured position again on this website because we know how important it is in keeping up with all your favorite Penmen teams. Now with just a short scroll from the top of the page, you can "get social" with us by seeing a mosaic of all our recent social media posts, or filtering them by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
VIDEO – When you think Penmen Athletics, you think of top-of-the-line video, so we made sure to give it the attention it deserves with its own separate player that is easy to navigate and allows you to get into the "video zone" with the latest game highlights, previews, and Penmen Profiles. The video player also resides on each sport-specific page so you can quickly find video of your favorite teams.
WEEK AT A GLANCE – Each Monday while school is in session, we recap the week that was and choose a male and female SNHU Student-Athlete of the Week. The athletes that claim the honor work hard to make it happen, so instead of the Week at a Glance disappearing off the home page by Tuesday, we have given it a permanent home on the front page, with stunning graphics and the ability to see not just the latest Week at a Glance, but any you might have missed, as well.
SCOREBOARD – A permanent scoreboard sits at the top of every page, giving you instant access to upcoming contests, as well as links to previews, live stats, videos, tickets and more. You can see every game or sort by your favorite team.
