Procedure exists for a reason[edit]

Next time you want to play copyvio, lotsofissues, you might want to follow the rules that are in place on wikipedia. I have reinstated the IS section, as I wrote it from scratch. --Jacquelyn Marie 20:13, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

Notable alumni section[edit]

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Someone needs to remove Aaron Fuleki and Alex Reed from the notable alumni section. They're both great guys, and Alex got a great gig at the College of William and Mary (http://www.wm.edu/music/faculty.php) after he got his PhD, but neither this nor getting your band signed merits "notable." Not even Woo alumn Andrew Bonito is on this notable list, and he was on a hit primetime TV show, Hell's Kitchen

I removed Alex Reed and Aaron Fuleki from the list. I'm also tempted to remove David Bowie's son from the the list, any thoughts? --shaile 21:25, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Agree wholeheartedly with both removals.--HonztheBusDriver 18:27, 1 April 2006 (UTC)


Keep Dunken Jones, add Andrew Bonito... Shit, that's really all we got?

Suzanne Woods paragraph[edit]

Could someone provide a citation for the info about Suzanne Woods? It didn't seem to be an active topic of discussion during my time at Wooster (Class of '03), so I don't believe it's an event that's still in the collective consciousness of most COW students. Without verification (other than "we all knew what really happened") it comes off more as speculation/conventional wisdom than encyclopedic fact. --HonztheBusDriver 18:25, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

I also would like some proof of the Suzanne Woods incident. I had a class with Madeline Duntley (Rel. Studies), and at one point during the semester, she went off on a tangent, and described more or less what is found in the paragraph in this article. She stated at one point that this situation was in an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education at some point, maybe these will help... (BTW, I'm also class of '03) --shaile 14:25, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Looks good - the citation was sorely necessary and I think the section works much better in its new position. --HonztheBusDriver 02:16, 4 April 2006 (UTC)
Huh. That's weird. I was class of '03, too, and knew all about the Susanne Woods thing. --Dietcoke06
Where did you hear about it? ==shaile 15:02, 6 April 2006 (UTC)
Hey, as of 2006, the college's Allies and Queers was still spreading awareness of the incident. But I changed the article because the second Woods source cited says Woods doesn't identify as lesbian though she was in a LTR with a woman. It doesn't go into what her orientation actually is and I'm not about to speculate. Jacqui 16:49, 15 August 2006 (UTC) (c/o 06)

Section on Kauke Arch[edit]

It needs sources and NPOV'ed. Whether the police actions were unnecessary or not is quite important and likely to be disputed. Rkevins 21:14, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

I just read the section and apparently any qualifiers concerning the police action have been removed, so I removed the NPOV tag. Maethordaer 04:14, 15 April 2007 (UTC) I also inserted the reference to the Akron Beacon Journal article as a footnote and therefore removed the unreferenced tag. Many would argue that the article itself is inherently biased, but that's another problem. If anybody wants to change the reference, go ahead. Maethordaer 06:45, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Kauke Arch and Woods trivia[edit]

Both the paragraph about Kauke Arch and Susanne Woods seem to be random trivia, not really related to an encyclopedia entry on The College of Wooster. Maybe a "Wooster Traditions" section might have something about filling the arch. Otherwise, I think both sections should be removed. JSBillings 18:32, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

If no one has any objections, I'm going to remove those two sections.JSBillings 13:23, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
I've made the change. JSBillings 13:11, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

The anonymous user User:65.29.67.183 re-added the Kauke Arch topic in place, with the comment "if you ignore the past then history repeats itself." While I agree with the sentiment, I still don't think it is the right place for the topic. Create another section or article for this information, but the point of this article is not to be a repository of news items that happened at Wooster, unless it is notable in a long-term significance. Please read: Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information JSBillings 16:12, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Notable Faculty[edit]

Doesn't Jack Gallagher deserve mention in the list of notable faculty? I have no connection with College of Wooster (so no inside information), but he has written some beautiful music. PE77Nun (talk) 17:37, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Notable people[edit]

Hi. The College of Wooster alumni and faculty list has gotten to the point that it needs to be split off into its own article. See the following colleges as examples. Thanks! Corkythehornetfan (talk) 19:32, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
