Colleges and Universities Official Template
Unless an official site is the only site in the main category for a school or in one of the subcats, it can be cooled.
Admissions - Includes information about and for prospective students. This category would also house all of the deep links about the university from informative sites such as www.review.com and US News and World Report.
Administration - Covers offices and support areas for colleges and universities, as well as general administrative offices.
Alumni - Includes resources specifically directed at alumni. A further category named "Regional" may be established for sites that cater to alumni in specific regions.
Athletics - The official university athletic site should be listed. @ links to school-sponsored athletics and sport teams which reside in Sports/College_and_University/ should be placed in the category. Unofficial sports clubs (i.e., teams that are NOT officially sanctioned by the athletic department) DO NOT belong in this cat. They should be moved to Student Organizations.
Departments and Programs - Subcats need to be created for all individual schools and colleges. The listings for each department should be found under the college or school it is affiliated with. If any college or school has pages for individual programs please create an individual Programs subcat (if this is confusing please see Reference/Education/Colleges_and_Universities/North_America/United_States/ New_Jersey/Princeton_University/Departments/ for an example). If a school has no such academic subdivisions, then all departmental listings should go directly under Departments and Programs, a separate Programs cat does need to be created though.
Libraries and Museums - Covers all campus libraries and museums from individual academic libraries and museums to main branches.
Organizations - Includes campus organizations and clubs - both student and otherwise. A Greek Life subcat should also be created (if necessary). All fraternities and sororities (if they exist) should be included in this category. Since many large institutions have more than 100 club sites it will be necessary to categorize them further. This can be accomplished in one of two ways:
- Subdivide by the type of club (i.e Sports Clubs, A-Capella, Ethnic, etc.) This method is preferred.
- Create an alphabar, and categorize the sites by the letter of their first name.
Publications and Media - Includes campus publications as well as news and/or media about the institution.
Research - Includes specific research efforts and/or studies. All Centers and Institutes should be placed in this cat.
