Web and Photography Services

Web Services will create and maintain a website for your department or group while following the University standards in look as well as accessibility. You can either learn how to maintain your own site or have Web Services do it for you. Photography can do portrait work for you and your department but can also provide specific images of events and subjects or more general images of life around campus and in Chico.


Whether you need photography for your next web update, a brochure, poster, or would simply like to document an awards dinner for your department archives, our talented photographers are available. We work directly with academic departments and administrative offices to create photographs, including professional portraits, for a variety of needs. Contact the Photography Studio at 530-898-6114, or send an e-mail to set up a photo session.

Website Design

If you are with a department on Campus, or an organization affiliated with the University, a website designed specific to your needs is the best way to distinguish yourselves from the crowd. While following the University Standards, Web Services will create a plan for your site that clearly communicates your group’s message while still making the experience simple, and even enjoyable, for your site visitors.

In addition to the site planning, Web Services can also create a unique ‘look’ for your group’s site. If you’d like to go beyond Chico State’s ‘look’, we can create a site that highlights your group’s unique character and personality through colors, pictures, and a unique layout.

Website Templates

The Chico State Website has been recently updated with a new look; is your department or organization ready to join in? Web Services has several templates that allow your site, pre-existing or brand new, to smoothly transition your visitors from the Chico State Website onto your page.

Give your visitors a streamlined experience through the built-in navigations and ready-made ‘look’ that our templates provide. Each template can be easily adjusted to allow for the specific needs of your department while still being easily recognized as a campus site.

If you’d like to edit your own site, the templates can be simply maintained through the University’s Web Content Management System with little instruction necessary.

Website Additions and Updates

Although Cascade Server offers easy updates with minimal training, many people are too busy to maintain their site themselves. Web Services can add to, or update, for you. We provide two types of maintenance services: we offer one time updates, and we also provide an annual contract service. With annual contracts, an update is as simple as sending an e-mail detailing the changes you’d like to be made then Web Services will make the appropriate update within one or two day’s time. We’ll bill once at the end May.

We offer several multi-media options including the implementation of a photo or video gallery, we can even set up a blog. If you need to include a form in your site, we can make, and design it, specific to your informational needs and in keeping with your site design. If you need to accept payment in a secure environment we can facilitate the use of PayPal on your site.
