FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Colorado State athletics department, with the help of CSU's Department of Web Communications and the staff at CBS Interactive, will proudly launch its newly reformatted CSURams.com Web site on Tuesday.
The site will offer an abundance of new features, including live Facebook and Twitter feeds on the home page, making it even easier for fans to receive play-by-play updates on their favorite CSU teams.
Along with the new social-network feeds, there will also be a bigger and better video player, which allows for lead stories on the home page to include a video. Toward the top of the main home page, as well as on each sport's home page, there will be a bar that features sliding buttons, giving site visitors quick and easy access to a number of links, and upcoming events.
Overall, the Web site will boast a fresh and clean look, making general navigation even simpler. The calendar tab at the top of the home page is better formatted, so fans can simply glance at a day and determine which teams are playing, where and when.
Plus, buying tickets to Rams events is easier than ever with a ticket menu on the right side of the Web site header for easy access.
A helpful toolbar will be included at the very top of the home page, which will contain a number of small icons, each linking to important pages, such as photo galleries and GameTracker.
The Colorado State athletics department would like to thank the following CBS Interactive staffers for their dedication to making this site become a reality: Joel Heineman, Julie Paray, Oscar Mancilla, Gil Perales, Vinh To, Cody Brunner, Omar Sanchez and Jennifer Daniel. Further acknowledgements are also extended to the CSU Department of Web Communications staff, including Devin Koncar. CSU's director of marketing Ben Chulick and assistant directors of media relations Danielle Marshall and Danny Mattie administered the six-month project.
Fans are encouraged to take some time to explore the new site when it launches on Tuesday.
The relaunch is the first in three years, since the current site launched in November 2007.
Along with a new Web site, as part of Debut Week leading up to Homecoming, the Rams also will unveil a new CAM the Ram costume Wednesday and a $1 million Moby Arena videoboard Thursday at CSU's home volleyball match with TCU Thursday night at 7:30.
