Talk:State University of New York Maritime College
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
this page is basically an advertisment for the college rather than an encyclopedia entry. For example:
Our New York City location provides our students with fabulous opportunities for work, study, and recreation. We are an international school in the most cosmopolitan city in the world.
Not exactly, NPOV, this whole thing needs to be redone.

I changed some of the "Our's" to the college's name. It really is like an advertisement, it's like a recruting officer got a Wikipedia account and is trying to perswade users to join the service. Yvan Eht Nioj
1st There are no "recruiters" for the Merchant Marine 2nd There is no "sevrvice " to join. You look for a job when you graduate like every other kid getting out of school. 3rd You may not like the article but did you find anything that was not factually acurat?
I agree, this page blatently goes against Wikipedia's regulations of maintaining a neutral source. This is more so a biased advertisment for the college rather than a source of information. I recommend serious editing by a professional.--XxTopCatxX 19:38, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
- Also a modern picture would be great, as I know the AN/SPS-49 radar is nolonger on the ship.--JAYMEDINC 17:35, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
Disputing 100% placement figure: I would like to dispute the 100% placement percentage that has been quoted by SUNY Maritime for many years now. As a 1992 gradaute I was unable to find employment for six months after graduation. The placement office was of little value, offering jobs such as able-bodied seaman on a tug boat - one which a gradaute would be severly over qualified for and is also much lower salary than the average college graduate might expect let alone the high salaries they insist their their gradautes earn. When I stopped calling the placement office looking for assitance in finding a job, they considered me "placed" for statistical purposes. I agree with earlier assessments that this article is little more than a free advertisement for the college. spikefar, class of 1992
The article could use references, especially the section on the Class of 2006 employment data and income statements. --Pesco 05:03, 6 April 2007 (UTC)
