New JHU Web site recognized as best of top-100 universities

When the university’s Web site was redesigned last fall, its creators had two goals: to use photography to effectively tell the story of Johns Hopkins, and to make the site easier to navigate.

Mission accomplished. Last week, the Bivings Report—an online source of news and conversation on Web-based communications—took a look at the sites of the universities ranked in the top 100 by U.S. News & World Report and gave the top spot to Johns Hopkins, noting its strong use of photography. “Entire site is excellent,” it said.
