Dalton State Website Wins Awards


Not only has Dalton State’s new website streamlined how Roadrunners find information, but it has been recognized three times now for the sleek redesign.

Dalton State’s website, developed by Third Wave Digital, received Best in Class from the Interactive Media Awards, Educational Digital Marketing’s Silver Award, and a Special Merit from CASE for Total Website Design and Organization.

The mobile-responsive site, which features graphic elements, photos, and videos, is a cleaner, more user-friendly site. The site reorganized several areas making it easier to navigate. It launched in the summer of 2015.

“Our strategic partner, Third Wave Digital, created a fabulous framework from which we can share news and information about Dalton State College,” said Pam Partain, director of Marketing and Communication. “Our web design committee included 10 folks from across campus who worked with us and with Third Wave to develop a rich and engaging experience for visitors to our site, particularly prospective students. We are thrilled with the result and the platform it provides us to tell the great stories of Dalton State.

“Misty Wheeler and Jonathan Marks do an outstanding job keeping the website fresh with vibrant and engaging content, but the real stars are the students, faculty, staff, and alumni who share their stories of the exciting work going on here and the College’s ability to transform lives.”
