I like it. That burgundy bg is a little too dark. And the icons look a little choppy at my resolution. But nice start!

And your CSS and HTML don't validate :(

what do you mean by the html and css dont validate?

also, i cannot change the color of the background. we are trying to stay consistant to the university and that is the exact color mandated by the university.

Well you could use that color some where else. Or not so much burgundy.

There are errors in your code and it may display properly or these errors could cause your page to look different in different browsers. They may also effect your SEO rating and some other things.

Here are the errors:

The site looks well at least for me (using firefox 3 with adblock plus and no-script)

If your going to be picky I can see that when I look at the right side I see the red bar (containing links to calendar, resource map, essay and publication) and its about 3 pixels not in line with the top bars.
But thats all, and noone looks at that any way.

I only feelt for whining.

zaiah: i'll look into the validator thanks :) Also, I cannot change the color scheme because that is not my decision. My director and I had many meetings over the homepage and he ultimately made the decision and I have to follow his decision, although I agree with it also.

webbmonarken: thanks :) it is also not in line with the left side the same amount and i thought it gave it a little more dimmension :) lol

thanks everyone for the comments....more are certainly welcome! :)
