Explore our new website for perspective students called Discover NOVA. The layout consists of full-screen images, large main tabs, bold graphics and video clips. The visual elements are used in harmony to guide users through the site with ease in a horizontal direction. The five landing pages for each of the tabs pose a question we anticipate perspective students would want to know with relevant links to the answers. The carousel at the bottom is packed with fun elements like: a video of a current NOVA student giving an overview of the College from her viewpoint, a virtual tour, a link to our apps, a link to our new online catalog, directions on how to apply, payment options, student profiles and much more! We hope perspective students will find the site easy to use and informative.

Check out the new version of our online Schedule of Classes. It has as a brighter/cleaner layout and a useful navigation bar on the left side. It also has a three-tab section at the bottom guiding you to other key areas of the NOVA website like: important dates, helpful links and the College Catalog.

A new website was created and launched for the regional Department of Labor – NOVA Credentials to Careers (C2C) initiative. The design is responsive, so the site looks good on any device, desktop or tablet. The header images feature students in STEM fields and rotate randomly. The content is displayed in a way that it’s easy to read, yet also visually interesting.
The Conference & Event Facilities website was six separate websites that were consolidated into one comprehensive site. It has a fresh new look/design and the content was updated to provide consistent details across all of the NOVA campuses. Each campus rental facility listed contains photographs, dimensions, pricing and details on how to reserve and rent the space. Consider one of NOVA’s great venues for your next event!
The SySTEMic Solutions website underwent a major redesign. The new features are engaging and the content is concise and informative.
Some of the changes include: new navigation, a drop down menu, an animated photo slider that links to SySTEMic Spotlight stories, 33 new pages, content changes to all pages, lots of images, buttons, a STEM Academy Promo Video (under STEM Academy), new page to information and links to the camps, a link off the home page to their social media, and a New Get Involved section for potential volunteers and partner opportunities.
Check out the SySTEMic Solutions website to learn more about the program and how to get involved.
It’s that time of year again. Check out the new gallery of My Story current student and faculty profiles for Fall 2013! We hope they will give you great insight into NOVA. As always, they represent students and faculty from all NOVA campuses and a variety of programs.
