Notables[edit]

What about adding the current rector of the Pontifical North American College, Msgr. James Checchio? Pop6 (talk) 18:40, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Affiliated Universities[edit]

Isn't Providence College affiliated with the Angelicum? Pop6 (talk) 18:40, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Name change proposal[edit]

I'd like to discuss changing the article name to simply Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas per WP:UNIGUIDE. The parenthetical reference in Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) seems to follow WP:DISAMBIG, which isn't necessary because there are no naming conflicts with "Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas". I realise the parenthetical reference is to an alternative name, but I'm pretty sure naming conventions don't support that sort of parenthetical usage. Let me know if I've missed any previous discussions on this topic, of course. King of the Arverni (talk) 21:21, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

I like simple names. Okay to have redirects for (maybe) "Angelicum" (assuming that is unique?Student7 (talk) 23:03, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
I suppose that I do, too, but I'm mainly focused on things like Wikipedia's naming conventions. Essentially, and you can read this as part of WP:UNIGUIDE, there's no need to disambiguate if there aren't any articles with the same title (also called a naming conflict). I'm not sure how anyone got away with using parentheses in this one, but I don't really know the history of the article, either, so that's not saying much. In answer to the redacted question, we would redirect Angelicum to this article if it truly is the primary topic, certainly (which seems to be the case). King of the Arverni (talk) 14:38, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
So are all interested parties in agreement that we ought to request this article be moved to Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas ("Saint" vs. "St." per [1])? --King of the Arverni (talk) 16:54, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
I say do it. I notice there hasn't been any change since this discussion a year ago, so if no one pipes in to the contrary in a few days, I will effect the change to Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas personally. — AlekJDS talk 04:41, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I'm moving the article. — AlekJDS talk 05:58, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: page moved per request. - GTBacchus(talk) 19:47, 12 January 2011 (UTC)



Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum)Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas — There has been a consensus that the page ought to be moved. "Angelicum" is nothing more than a common nickname, so it needn't be in the page title; and we're going with "Saint" over "St." since the institution itself seems to prefer that style (cf. this archived link; the webpage seems to be down at the moment). (And per Naming conventions: abbreviations: "'Saint' vs 'St' or 'St.' in placenames should depend upon the official usage.") — AlekJDS talk 06:06, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

  • Support Seems straight forward. Skinsmoke (talk) 07:08, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Notable alumni and faculty[edit]

The section about notable faculty and alumni is a bit too long, and it takes the form of a list. Each of those paragraphs should probably be moved to the article of the persons they describe. (For the ones without articles, the paragraphs would make excellent stub-starters.) Remember that this is an article about the Angelicum, not an honor roll of all of its notable figures. Please read the Manual of Style at WP:Universities, which describes the ideal "notable people section" as follows: This section is not for a list of famous alumni, but rather a description of notable academic staff and alumni presented in paragraph form. Summarize the number of affiliates and alumni who have won major scholarships (Rhodes, Fulbright, etc.), major awards (Nobel, Oscar, Pulitzer, etc.), served as heads of government or other major political office, or otherwise held elite or notable distinctions (astronauts, professional athletes, CEOs, etc.). Individuals who do not meet Wikipedia's notability guideline should not be included. I will take action to improve this article along these guidelines after a suitable period of time has passed for discussion. — AJDS talk 21:18, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Agree. More than that, the article is cluttered with who attended, thereby making the university famous. It should be about the university itself. Okay to have a list of graduates with one short line describing him.Student7 (talk) 23:08, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
