Not an advertisement[edit]

I see no reason to say that this article is written like an advertisement. It doesn’t have enough references, but there is no self-congratulatory or promotional text… just a lot of facts. Just because no one has spliced in any negative sections does not mean that the POV is not neutral. The box saying that it looks like an advertisement should be removed, maybe replaced with one asking for more references. --Another-sailor (talk) 09:09, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Even if this statement: "...finest collection of Chicago Imagist art in the world" had references, it would still sound self-congratulatory to me. And then there is this in the section on the library: "...Comfortable, welcoming, and ready to provide help..." These are statements of opinion, not fact.

The Keg?[edit]

This is mindless drivel. While I know many students love their drinking on campus, this is pure hogwash. There is no such tradition at Elmhurst. I've removed it.76.214.198.139 (talk) 06:09, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Reverse conversion[edit]

154,000 square metres (38 acres), something is skookem. Peter Horn User talk 19:29, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

48 acres (194,249 m2) or 48 acres (19.4 ha), another good reason to use {{convert}}. Peter Horn User talk 19:47, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
