USU, OU Campus & You: A Winning Website Team
Utah State University uses OU Campus, a leader in higher education website content management, to provide website services for colleges, departments, and programs across campus.
We offer two free templates, with configurable navigation, banners, headers, content areas and footers. Each can be configured, within the USU Branding Guidelines, to meet the needs of any organization. Not only are the templates free to use, but OU Campus is also free to use. This means no monthly hosting fees.
On top of all that, USU OU Campus websites are easy for anyone to update and maintain. You also have the support of the IT Web Team when questions arise!
If your website isn't in OU Campus already, you begin by choosing the header option that best meets your needs. You can choose between Big Blue or Whiteout. (Some restrictions apply.) Once you've made your choice, or if you're not sure which choice is best for you, contact the IT Web Team. Once you've talked to the IT Web Team, we will set up your new site and train you in moving or adding content.
What Can You Do With Your Website?
Once you have your website in OU Campus, you have a variety of options for how to layout your content on the page. Not sure what your homepage should look like? Need to add a few columns? Want an image with a few columns of text? Need a button? Want to set up your directory and individual faculty pages? Want to set up your news feed and add it to your home page? Interested in adding Google analytics to track visitors to your page? Need an image or video gallery? Want to present your data in a table? Want to present your text in an accordion? Need help with your top or side navigation? Not sure if your webpages are accessible? Answers to these questions and many more can be found here!
You can add many of these layout pieces through snippets, or by copying and pasting the code provided on this website. We've even made it simple by providing Copy Source Code buttons.
At every step along the way you have the support of the IT Web Team. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (435) 797-8551 with your specific questions. You are not alone in presenting your message to website visitors. The IT Web Team is here to help!
