Visitors to Booth University College's website (www.BoothUC.ca) have a new and improved experience in store for them. Earlier this week the university college launched a redesigned website that aims to help visitors find what they are looking for with ease no matter what type of device they use to access the site.

The new responsive design allows Booth UC's website to be optimized on any mobile or tablet device, so it looks great on any screen. Improved navigation, new and more organized content, and a searchable and sortable course database are just a few of the improvements made that will help ensure the visitor's experience is a rewarding one from the very first click.
“Our priority was to communicate our story in a more engaging way and to ensure our current and prospective students are able to find the information they need quickly,” says Dr. Donald Burke, president of Booth University College. “I encourage you to visit our enhanced About Us section to learn more about the Booth UC story and our vision for this great institution.”
Other notable changes in the new website include a new stand-alone library (www.BoothUC.ca/library), a social media hub, Accepted Students page, Alumni Association section and an enhanced Registrar's page to provide current students with easy access to pertinent information. To simplify the application process, the Admissions area includes separate entry portals for Canadian, American, International and Salvationist applicants.
“Our website is the most important tool we have to connect with future students, alumni, donors and friends of Booth UC,” says Major John Murray, vice president advancement. “We will continue to enhance the site by adding new content and features, so I encourage you to visit regularly and send us your feedback and suggestions.”
This is Booth UC's first redesign of its website since the previous launch in 2009. Feedback is always welcome. If you have comments or suggestions, please email Tish Best, communications director, at Tish_Best@BoothUC.ca.
