First things that comes to my mind:
I'd reduce the height of the large image, so users don't have to scroll down to start finding actual content, maybe even make some room to one side or the other for a column of latest news, etc.?
Lose the pink-on-white text and white-on-pink text. Sure, it makes sense for pink to be a significant design element, but readability is important, too. (It might be okay in very limited usage such as some headers, making sure there's enough contrast though to be easily readable even in those limited places.)
