American University of Antigua is a medical, veterinarian, and health sciences university for American and Canadian students located in the heart of the Caribbean. In an effort to revolutionize the traditional university website experience, AUA uses a fresh take on conventional online slide shows, navigational concepts and academic media to give prospective students an authentic experience.
The AUA site relaunch was a complex, multi-phase project. Developed on a custom-built Drupal CMS, the site features a cross-departmental event calendar, audio and video gallery, image slideshows, campus news, student blogging, and an interactive campus tour. The AUA site was a standout in the educational category, winning an FWA award in 2011 and setting record traffic numbers for the University.
