How to pronounce?[edit]

Is the second word pronounced "Julie" as it looks, or "Julia"? I've heard both.

I have always heard it pronounced Julie. --Boothy443 | trácht ar 06:45, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

It is pronounced Julie. Julia is incorrect but is a common mistake. The college is considering changing its name.

I've heard they've been considering a name change to either "Villa Julie University," or "Stevenson University" after obtaining university status. It is rumored that the school administration wishes to distance itself from the religiously-associated Villa Julie name, however some alumni are not happy that their diplomas would be from a place with a different name, and many others among faculty and the student body do not feel the same need to shed the Villa Julie name. --Korteenea 08:00, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

What data?[edit]

"This reason was cited by the Board of Trustees although data indicates that almost no current students or prospective students were even aware of Villa Julie's former status as a woman's college. "

What data? There is no source, and no data is cited. Sounds speculative.

Who needs data to back up a decision?  :( —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.179.36.89 (talk) 13:21, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Cleanup tag[edit]

I added a cleanup tag to this article, since it needs to better follow WP:UNIGUIDE. I can do some of this myself, but I thought to give others a chance to contribute :-). Examples of issues: the story-like content in the history "the university today enrolls...." isn't encyclopedic but sounds like a brochure; the list of majors and programmes is similarly advert-like and not encyclopedic. Cheers! --Aepoutre (talk) 18:48, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

I just completed a first cut at following WP:UNIGUIDE. The article still needs expansion on some sections, including a better lead, photographs, and more about the two campuses. Article also needs to be monitored for ongoing expansion into the old Rosewood Center (still bogged down in late 2013, after 3 years of talking).— Molly-in-md (talk) 17:18, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
