Style & NPOV[edit]

Here's why I'm removing the content for NPOV and style:

  • "consistently ranked as" is one of the phrases specifically noted as problematic in WP:PRESTIGE. It's blatant academic boosterism. The information is also included elsewhere and doesn't need to be in the lead.
  • The athletic championship info seems to be undue weight in the lead; it should be in the athletics section.
  • Per WP:UNIGUIDE, the Academics section should be called Academics, not Academics & Scholarship.

I'm happy to discuss the interpretation of the guidelines. WeisheitSuchen (talk) 17:00, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
