Text in block not displaying properly

Last Modified: 2016-11-29
I added an extra row in the menu in the top left quadrant of this page: http://www.sonoma.edu/exed/

This resulted in the text in the space below the menu to bump up against the line below it. I would just like create more space for the text so that it displays fully and the line in that quadrant and the one next to it, on the right-hand-side, remained lined up together (like they do now).

I am assuming some changes also need to be made to the CSS in addition to the HTML on the page.

Would appreciate any help.

The html is a bit munged to be honest.

.audience-category set to height 370px;

.audience-category {
    width: 360px;
    float: left;
    height: 370px;

That code should really be something like
<div class="box">
     <div class="box-left">
               <img src="somthing.jpg">
               <div class="image_tag">Tag Line</div> 
   <div class="box-right"><ul><li>list</li></ul></div>
  <div class="box-full">
      <p>Your paragraphs</p>
     <p>Your paragraphs</p>

Open in new window

Or use a grid system like bootstrap may be easier.
