QU Athletics unveils new website
By Marsalis Johnson
QUHawks website is now more interactive and has added interaction on social media accounts.
Director of Athletic Communications Ryan Snyder is in his second year in the department. He says a continued contract allowed QU to update the site.
“We are on a 3-year contract with SIDEARM Sports that has allowed to update our sports website. Like last year, many people of the group who has experienced with this contract were able to make a few changes to the website. I believe that this update here is more on the social media side,” Snyder explains.
Social media has been very popular with celebrities, sports, and viral videos. Snyder has come up with a good plan to make QU a good target for athletes and scholars.
“Social media has been such a huge thing and I figured it would be a good idea to put the school on the map by using this method. The way how I see it is that I would like people from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or wherever to have young students or students that are transferring to have a good look at us,” Snyder explained.
Snyder had the idea to make it more for people to find the tabs of each sport and make the website more open.
“I think that this update to our website should a lot easier to do the navigation on each sport tab or other tabs. I’ve noticed on our previous update some the things were all over the place and a few people were having a hard time to find something they are looking for. This update should make things more simple and easy for the everybody,” Snyder said.
