First-in-their-family college students have ZoomzNing Network Spotlight
Zoomz is a social resource for first-generation college students. This Ning Network connects students to relate, interact, and learn about the college experience.
Zoomz puts an introductory video front and center on the Main Page. This serves as a great visual hook, as well as an effective Welcome Center for new members. For peer support, blog posts like this one talk about financial aid basics. And expert advice is nicely placed in the navigation bar with the Tab Manager. Underneath the top-level tab “Expert Corner,” members will find sub-tabs for Resources, FAQs, and “Ask Laurel” for expert advice.
