Champaign, IL, November 16, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The Gamma Zeta chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity at Mississippi State University recently won the “Most Outstanding Collegiate Web Design” award at their national convention. Their website, www.ztamsu.com, was recognized to have shown excellence in demonstrating exemplary use of technology.
“It made me feel good that the tools we had used were being recognized as being great,” said Liz Heinz, Chapter President. “Coming back from convention, saying that our chapter’s website was the best out of all the Zeta Tau Alpha chapters in the country was something we could come home and brag about.”
Zeta Tau Alpha members are confident that their website award has helped this year with recruiting.
“The more great things we can talk about with our chapter the better,” said Tiffany Hill, Informal Recruitment Chair. “Being able to showcase the things we have done as a chapter helps us a lot with recruiting.”
Zeta Tau Alpha, an all-female organization, is known as a fraternity, not as a sorority. There are seven sororities on campus at Mississippi State University, and they believe that having a dynamic website helps their chapter stand out.
“It’s such a great PR and a recruitment tool,” said Heinz. “I know all the high school seniors and incoming freshman look at the website before they come in the fall. All our links are on the Panhellenic Council website and they can get to ours from it.”
The website design was created by Chapter Communications, a web and communications provider that also designed the ZTA websites at James Madison University and the University of North Texas.
“We are excited to hear when our clients win awards for the websites that we helped them create,” said Jeremy Turner, National Marketing Director for Chapter Communications. “This is just an example of what organizations can do when given the right tools to work with, and we are pleased to be able to provide them with that opportunity.”
Chapter Communications has provided interactive website and communication services to community groups and organizations since 2004. The websites allow organizations to easily edit their sites, send emails to their members, plan events, create sign-up lists and message boards, post jobs/internships, add photo galleries, pay bills online, upload files and view statistics of their website.
