It is important to note that the section is for notable graduates (or students who attended but did not graduate). It is not up to the college to decide, through a list of distinguished graduates, who is or is not allowed on this list. Please discuss here before taking off people as not being distinguished based on the college's criteria. Metros (talk) 15:31, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
Wikipedia is allowing outsiders to disparage the name of North Carolina A&T. On the Wikipedia pages of other universities, I do not see the names of alumni that have performed criminal acts. To add insult, you are allowing outsiders to post a nauseating and unkempt picture of Khalid Muhammad on the A&T webpage. A&T does not support this individual and he should not be a part of any alumni list. If you want to add a footnote, fine. I for one am through with Wikipedia and I implore all Aggies to follow suit. Wikipedia may not care but I no longer care about Wikipedia in turn. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:26, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
- He is an extraordinarily notable alumnus who was involved in one of the formative events of the 21st century. If other articles omit alumni of similar importance then that is certainly a problem that needs to be fixed in those articles. Whether those institutions "support" those alumni is immaterial.

I re-added Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to the list of notable alumni. He is undeniably notable and must be there. On a personal note, I don't believe NC A&T has anything to be embarrassed about. It was the federal govt that decided to let such an individual into the country, originally to attend a different institution. Also, I don't think it's necessary to have his picture, just his name.Wfgiuliano (talk) 17:16, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

Proposal for Article Images
There are a lot of great images that have been added to the article, however the bulk of these images seem to have no relevance to the section of the article in which they are placed. I Propose that we move these great images to New Subpage until they can be placed in more relevant sections or articles regarding The University. (user)(talk) 23:46, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
- Done I went ahead and relocated the images in question until such a time in which they can be better placed within the article in addition to improved captions user)(talk) 04:14, 11 February 2014 (UTC) (
Orphaned references in North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 10:32, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
