Users scroll, it’s a fact; otherwise there wouldn’t be pages deeper than 700 pixels. Make sure your important elements are above the fold, this includes navigation.

Nominate anyone you think would have some great insight and can analyze a higher education website constructively. They don’t have to be a big name or even popular.
