Lists

Avoid the dreaded wall of words by breaking up your content into easy-to-read chunks. Lists are a great way to make important information stand out.

Bulleted Lists

Bulleted lists are used to make items stand out from the text without implying order of importance. The CMS has multiple options for the styling of the bullets: disk, circle and square, which are helpful when nesting bulleted lists.

Bulleted list example:

Attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Experience life as a college student
  • Learn how to navigate the college admissions process
  • Learn what it takes to be a successful student
  • Connect with Carolina students, faculty, and staff
  • Discover what Carolina has to offer
  • Click here to view the program brochure.
  • Click here to check out videos from past Summer Seniors events.

Numbered Lists

Numbered or ordered lists are used to show items in a series, such as steps in a process. The CMS has multiple options for the styling including numbers, upper and lower alphas and roman numerals.
