University Departmental Website Content?

What do you think should be on a university science department's website? If you were a student researching/applying for an UG or Masters program, or someone generally interested in the dept, what would you like to see and where? Alternatively, what are good examples of science dept. websites that you have seen?

I've been charged with updating my departmental website. We are a chemistry department in a predominantly Undergrad Institution (i.e. no Ph.D. program, some research w/masters/undergrads).
We have a very specific form/style guide - this limitation, along with limited technical expertise limits us to static html: i.e. links and text only please.
We currently have:
Programs of Study (inc. application details)
Useful Science Links
Faculty (including their personal pages)
Who else would be reading the website apart from potential/current students, and people interested in the dept. What would they like to see?
Any other advice greatly appreciated.
