Hate Crimes[edit]

This website is not a university advertisment. Unless a worthwhile reason can be given for removing the "Hate Crimes" addition, I will petition the moderator to lock the page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.239.33.93 (talk) 00:10, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Completely agree that this is not a University advertisement. It is, however, an encyclopedia; it is important to remember this when making additions to the article. Such a "current event" issue which has been incredibly contained is not worthwhile to be added into an encyclopedia. Perhaps, in order to reach some sort of agreement, you can consider making a much smaller reference to the issue. Finally, consider that (since the issue is clearly controversial enough to be causing a sort of edit war) you do NOT add it until you have properly referenced information.

News copied from article[edit]

I have removed the following text from the article:

Stetson held two ceremonial groundbreakings September 21, 2008, for two buildings: the new Science Center and the Homer and Dolly Hand Art Center. Construction on the Science Center has begun and both buildings are expected to be finished for the 2008–09 school year. Two other academic building projects were also announced at the groundbreaking. The four projects represent $13 million in new construction at Stetson.
The first phase of the Science Center will be a 22,000-square-foot (2,000 m2) expansion to the front (west side) of the existing science building, Sage Hall. The new two-story section will increase space for science at Stetson by nearly 50 percent.
The new 5,000-square-foot (460 m2) Homer and Dolly Hand Art Center will feature two galleries — one to exhibit rotating selections from Stetson’s extensive collection of art by modernist painter Oscar Bluemner (1867–1938) and the second to display other works from the university’s permanent art collection or for special shows. It will be between Sampson Hall and the duPont-Ball Library on campus.

Wikipedia is not a newspaper, so minor events like a groundbreaking, and future plans for buildings, do not belong in the article. The buildings should be added to the article after they are completed. -- Mwanner | Talk 12:51, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Adding College of Law to list of Stetson University academic programs[edit]

Can you please add the following info to the academic section for Stetson University?

College of Law The College of Law offers Juris Doctor and Master of Laws degrees at its campuses in Tampa Bay, Florida. LL.M. students may specialize in advocacy, elder law or international law, and J.D. students may pursue certificates of concentration in advocacy, elder law, environmental law, international law or social justice advocacy.[1] U.S. News and World Report ranked Stetson's College of Law #1 for trial advocacy and #5 for legal writing in its 2014 "Best Graduate Schools" issue.[2]

Since the law school has its own article, I've added an abbreviated version of the above to the article. See [1]. - Voceditenore (talk) 17:17, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
