8. New and improved @Metro in the works

The Office of College Communications is working on an @Metro Web site that will feature a new design and improved navigation and search capabilities. We'd like to know what you think so that we can make adjustments based on your opinions before we roll it out this fall.

If you would like to be part of a beta test group this summer that will receive This Week @Metro in its new version, please e-mail Chris Mancuso at mancuso@mscd.edu. We'll notify you in the coming weeks when it's ready and send you the new version each week.

Thanks in advance for your help.
