Orientation Website

Over the course of three years, I worked on content development, writing, editing and layout for 15+ issues of the monthly Parent/Family Focus at the request of my supervisor. Using Constant Contact, my co-worker and I collaborated to create an e-mail newsletter including updates on academics, social events, campus policies and college achievements. We used photos and hyperlinks to direct readers to further information, including highlights on the Ramapo College website. Five issues of The Parent/Family Focus are highlighted here. 

 Newspaper Advertisement

"October is Academic Advising Month"

Thursday, September 30, 2010

 

To prepare for Academic Advising Month I was tasked with creating an advertisement for The Ramapo News using a puzzle piece theme. Working in Microsoft Illustrator, I developed a simple ad to serve the following purposes: help students identify their academic advisors; encourage students and faculty members to familiarize themselves with the advisement process; highlight important dates relevant to academic advisement; and direct readers to further information through office and online resources.

"Orientation Programs"

April 2012

 

As our office and those overseeing it prepared to launch a comprehensive website providing information on Ramapo's orientation programs and resources for students, parents and families, I was selected to compose the written content for the pages marked "Orientation Information" ("Spring Orientation," "Fall First-Year Orientation" and "Fall Transfer/Readmit Orientation"), "Parents & Families," "Student Orientation Leaders" and "Meet the Staff."​

 Student Success Web  Content

"Peer Facilitators & First-Year Experience Gallery"

March 2013

 

While working as a testing assistant under the direction of Student Success, I was asked to write content for the "Peer Facilitators" and "First-Year Experience Gallery" pages on the CAAFYE website. The goal was to provide an overview of Student Success services—including the Peer Facilitation program, New Student Orientation, Welcome Week, Family Day and the Majors & Minors Fair—and highlight their connection to student achievement in a concise manner. 

"Post-Testing Opportunities"

October 2013; March 2013

 

These documents exemplify content written to present the same information to different audiences, in a way that best meets the needs of each. Originally composed for the Fall 2013 semester and later revised for the Spring 2014 semester, these handouts highlight opportunities for students categorized as "prepared" and "underprepared"—based on their placement testing scores—to get ahead before the start of classes. Upon completion of testing and evaluation of placement, students were given one of the two documents to direct them toward next steps and to underline the link between testing and student success.
