    Iowa State should really show off pictures of campus on the front page, their website is so bland and this new one is too.

    I agree that Iowa States Website is extremely easy to use and find information. Really, I think they could have kept the same format, but change the background to something different. But the new one looks nice.

    +1

    I also appreciate the simple, clean design. Complex designs cause two big problems. First, they hide the information you're trying to find. And second, complex designs usually take a long time to load. I try to avoid the athletics web page for that very reason.

    Not an ISU student anymore but I was truly scared as a graphic designer to click that link, it's not bad though, I agree with the comment above it is an improvement.

    I like it. The current one is very boring. The new one is more eye-catching and interesting, yet professional at the same time.

    Re: ISU launches new homepage website

    I think the new design is great... It is still simple and easy to view/use like the current one, however it has a lot more design qualities and colors too it that make it aesthetically pleasing...

    Good to keep up with the times too with the twitter feed of ISU staff/departments...
