coffeebreakAdmissions Unveils New Website
With Averett's enrollment goals in mind, our Webmaster Amelia Brantley and a team of five set out to redesign the admissions portion of the website to better serve online visitors.

Launched on Friday, May 11, the new site features a self-identifying navigational structure that guides prospective students through the admissions process in a more personal way. In addition, there are new graphics and videos made commercially and in-house and a new online 'map to admission.'

We invite you to visit the new admissions site and check out the changes.
