Expressions is a service that allows members of the SU Community to build websites using WordPress. WordPress is a widely used content management system that is both well-documented and supported. Visit  for more information. With an Expressions WordPress site you can create a portfolio, class blog, or department site with the style and content of your choosing. There are two types of Expressions sites available: Individual and Pro.

Once you have your Expressions site, you can install custom themes, experiment with plugins, and upload content. While using WordPress as a content management system does not give you the complete control to build a site from scratch, it allows you to rapidly create professional content with a reduced commitment of resources.
