"We selected Finalsite, in part, because of their design-first approach--rather than having to select a design firm and then make that design work with a new content management system, Finalsite is creating a design that will reflect our school’s mission and culture.”

Bethel College, a Christian liberal arts college in Indiana that draws students from all around the world, switched from an open source solution, MODX, to Finalsite in August of 2018. Within a few months of making the change, there were a number of positive results."Finalsite played a role in increasing the number of people taking actions [scheduling a visit, applying to the college, and requesting information] we want them to take through the website," says Susan Miller, Director of Web Strategy at the school. Alumni engagement has also increased. Miller credits the website as it has, "provided more opportunities to connect with alumni and made it easier to register and attend events."

Vanguard University, with a mission to pursue knowledge, cultivate character, deepen faith, and equip each student for a spirit-empowered life of Christ-centered leadership and service, turned to Finalsite to revamp its website to reflect the richness and diversity of the student experience.  A fundamental goal of the design was to give users a path into each of the three divisions (undergraduate, graduate and professional studies), which provides a coherent aesthetic and navigational devices. A best-in-class design with a variety of interactive elements and special treatments propelled the University's online presence to something as unique as they are.
