We are a new website that connects college-bound students with mentors. We want to provide access to college mentors to all students looking to apply to college. This will help to provide students from all backgrounds with equal opportunity to discover what would help to maximize the appeal of their application.
Users will consist of two types, consultants and consultees.
Consultees include: college-bound students, parents
Consultants include: professional consultants, teachers and educators, current college students
We want a site that is attractive and professional, but not overly serious.
See attached for a simple wireframe of the home page, but THIS IS NOT A GUIDELINE because we want to give you the flexibility to put together what you think will look best! It just provides some content for you to work with. We will provide feedback as soon as possible.
The home page has a few purposes
1. Explain the purpose of the site
2. Show people how to get started
3. Provide information on us - about us
4. Portal to general advice
The dashboard is what a consultant would see as a summary of the activity related to him/her. This would include
1. Upcoming appointments
2. Unread messages
3. Recent appointment History
4. Navigation to other mentor pages (see wireframe)
Also attached is our current logo, but the colors can be changed depending on how the web design works out. I also uploaded a second logo that uses some better colors. Feel free to use either one.
