Student Life Section[edit]

A section should be added to address Student Life. See Haverford College as an example. Neagley 03:28, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Trimming alumni list[edit]

I removed that David Hart guy from the notable alumni list again. He hardly seems notable.

I also think the list could be trimmed further, by removing Nathaniel Craley, and possibly George Winter and David Bittle.

Eddie Plank never graduated.

Craley only served a single term in congress, back in the mid 1960s. Bittle's position, while respectable, doesn't strike me as being quite notable enough to warrant his inclusion, especially as I'm not so sure the institution he is president of is very well known. And, perhaps I'm missing something because I'm not much of a sports fan, but I don't think that George Winter is a particularly well known or accomplished baseball player.

I'd prefer to get other opinions before any of these names are trimmed from the list, though. Any thoughts? -WayneNight 02:47, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

Assess[edit]

This article seems to have been self rated as universally a B class article. B class articles\have references - a lot. I have rest these but left the Luthorian one (although as I? say generous) Victuallers 22:24, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

I agree with this point. I will change the designation. Neagley (talk) 00:54, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Eisenhower Section[edit]

A section should be developed for the Eisenhower Institute that the university recently acquired. Neagley (talk) 00:45, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Bernstein Learning Center[edit]

A section should be developed for the Bernstein Center for Artful Learning that was recently acquired. Neagley (talk) 00:45, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

New Athletic Center[edit]

I'd like to add a section to the Wikipedia page about the new athletic center that was just completed and opened.

Student Statistics[edit]

I think this article lacks a section on student achievement. Statistics like average SAT score and high school GPA, and percentage of the student body that goes on to grad school, are very useful for prospectives. RafaelRGarcia (talk) 17:55, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
