Saint Joseph's College Launches New Athletics Website
Saint Joseph's College has launched its new athletics website, athletics.saintjoe.edu, designed by SIDEARM Sports.
"We're very excited to offer this new website to Pumas past, present, and future," said SJC Athletic Director Bill Massoels '89. "The site gives us the opportunity to interact with visitors in new ways, and it will employ technology that will give people an enjoyable, user-friendly experience."
Along with sporting a sleek design, the site will feature interactive content that will allow visitors to track live scoring, view videos of coaches and athletes, and gain information through various social networking mediums such as Twitter and Facebook. The site will also offer mobile updates, podcasts, photo galleries, and access to Puma merchandise.
As with the old site, visitors can also view rosters, schedules, and player statistics and information. Recruitment forms for prospective student athletes will also be available through the site.
"The purpose of the site is to integrate social media into our fan base, giving Saint Joseph's College Athletics a fresh, modern, and more informative face," said SJC Sports Information Director Ken Badylak '05. "I feel the site will give our student athletes increased recognition for their accomplishments. None of this would have been possible without the dedication of students Stephanie Wiethop '12, Sean Estand '11, Shawn Hardy '11, and Mike Korman '11, who have assisted with the integration process the past three months."
SIDEARM has a client list that includes nearly 500 athletic clients from around the country, including several Great Lakes Valley Conference schools, and many other NCAA Division I, Division II, Division III, National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) schools and collegiate conferences.
Saint Joseph's College, named a "character-building college" by the Templeton Foundation and a "best Midwestern college" by the Princeton Review, is a four-year, Catholic college offering 25 majors, 4 group majors, 32 minors, and 9 pre-professional programs, complemented by the nationally acclaimed Core Program. Founded and sponsored by the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, SJC is located in Rensselaer, Indiana, approximately 90 minutes from both Chicago and Indianapolis, on a park-like campus of 180 acres and has an enrollment of more than 1,000 students.
