So I just put my website online (only the second one I have done). It is for an organization that i do promotions for. Any feedback would be great. The site is FAR from complete, as I add content it will not only become more informative but more appealing to the eye. Thanks for your help in advance.

Not bad! My only suggestion is to change the default font face... it's times new roman on the PC, and it is hideous. That's a pet peeve of mine though.

I would strongly suggest replacing your navigational image and image maps with text links for accessibility reasons.

Same thing goes for the calendar graphic. Ideally, it should be a table.

What kinds of resources do you have on your campus for web accessibility info?

Your blank pages should at least say something like "Coming Soon" to let visitors know that thay are intentionally blank.

Thank you for all of your responses.

I will be making the calendar into a table very soon. And thank you for the reminder of text links. Alt text tags and text links completely slipped my mind. I was very conscious to use them for my last site as they were pounded into our heads in my Strat Comm class. I will have to fix that. Thank you all vey much

Have you looked into using CSS? It seems like it'd save you a lot of <tr> and <td> tags on things like the event page...

Or not. I'm very new at this and just trying to pass on what little I've learned in the past week or two. haha

You are absolutely correct, and I am using css. Thanks for the input
