Website as a marketing tool

Often the first contact prospective students and their parents have is through the college website. The recent conversion to the OmniUpdate web management system was coupled with extensive design research methods to create a website that was pleasing to look at, organized in a structured and easy to navigate way, and features a style that is consistent across all college web pages. There are a variety of ways visitors can find information about all aspects of the college and the top of the homepage features rotating photos that highlight various college programs and offerings. An online orientation video is being produced that will give new and prospective students a general overview of the college. It will also provide step-by-step instructions on how to enroll and register for classes, seek counseling help, and get info about financial aid and assessment testing.

Social Media

The Facebook page features college news, upcoming deadlines, course offerings, and provides updates on campus activities. The page is loaded with photos and graphics and promotes interaction between the college and viewers.

Twitter and Instagram feature short messages and stand alone photos, respectively, offering information and announcements about the college.

Our iTunes U and YouTube sites feature dozens of college, faculty, and staff produced video and audio recordings including lectures, guest speakers, performances and events.

We also post college events on the SJ Mercury News and Metro online community bulletin board/event pages, and also on the Campbell, Saratoga, and Los Gatos Patch (local news) websites.

New Parking Permit Design - samples of proposed designs below

Parking Permit Parking Permit Parking Permit Parking Permit

Every semester thousands of students and hundreds of employees attach the generic WVMCCD parking permit to the front window of their cars. We are working with the district police and parking enforcement team in designing new permits that feature the college logo as the predominant element on the permit. A separate design for each campus is being proposed with the permit being good at both campuses. If approved, there will be no additional cost for the production of these new permits.
