Listings are categorized into user-friendly links, said Geoffrey Greene, director of informational technology support services.
“It’s a lot easier to use and better organized because you can just click on the links instead of having to scroll down all the way,” said Crystal Acevedo ’15.
Some students said they are now more likely to use Morning Mail to learn about campus events.
David Chodakewitz ’15, who is a member of the EcoReps program, said he thinks the new format will help his group better publicize registration for an upcoming conference.
Planning for these changes began in UCS meetings last spring, Bramain said, adding that her committee met with representatives from Computing and Information Services and the Office of Public Affairs and University Relations.
Additional possible changes to Morning Mail are in the works, though there is no definitive timeline for those modifications, Bramain said. UCS has recommended expanding the categories of listings beyond events and announcements, she added.
