Under Construction: The OLC Site Launch

Welcome to the brand new OLC site!

We’ve been working on the new site for months, it’s still a little rough around the edges, but I, for one, think it’s already leaps and bounds ahead of the old site.

Before I introduce you to the site, let me introduce myself. I’m Elizabeth and I’ve been working at the OLC since January. Along with Grace, I manage our wonderful volunteers. I also write for the site, and help out with our Twitter account (@SFU_OLC). I’ll be the one updating you on all the latest site updates.

But enough about me, this blog will keep you up to date on all the latest site changes.

As you can see the site isn’t fully launched yet, but I hope you can get a sense of the general look and feel, as well as the sense of community we want to create. One of my favourite new features is member profiles, which will allow you to see each other and get to know who is writing your favourite articles.

Another new feature is our social media integration, if you find something you like you can share it out with the click of a button, so go ahead and try it out!

While we eagerly await the launch of our member profiles, experiences, portfolios, and all the other goodies we have to share you can check out all our stories and blog postings. The awesome people over at Career and Volunteer Services have kindly let us host their CSI and ENGAGE blogs.

That’s all the updates for now, check back soon to see the latest changes!
