Big and nimble. Southern Nevada proves that a college can be both.
If you think big means slow and cumbersome, you don’t know Southern Nevada. With 45,000 students, CSN is one of the largest community colleges in the U.S. But, like a 300-pound NFL lineman, it can move as fast as lightning when opportunity strikes. One example: when a prominent technical college went bust, CSN got a new landing page to attract tech students up and running in minutes. Amazing? Not really. It was just another day at the office for the IT professionals at CSN. All using the future-proof digital foundation we laid for them.
When they chose KWALL to build a new website to replace their old, out-of- date site, we were honored. Our team of experts worked with CSN’s team to achieve goals that needed to be met. Like growing the number of applications from prospective students, and increasing the rate of lead capture - while being nimble to the wide evolving world of community college academics. We accomplished the mission with a site built on a flexible, open-source platform (Drupal) that gives CSN the control it needs, without being beholden to anyone - saving the college time and money. The new site utilizes a personalization engine and optimizes content to create a unique and compelling experience for visitors. And the responsive design optimizes to a browser, tablet or phone. So, the experience is the same across the screens, just shrunken down to size. All of this led to a doubling of mobile usage within months of launch.
We’re also happy to say that our work received the Acquia MVP Award in recognition of technical execution. Could your college or university benefit from the thinking and expertise at KWALL? Now would be an excellent time to find out.
