Peacock wording[edit]

I placed the peacock template on this page because it effectively describes a pervasive issue with the article. See Wikipedia:Avoid_peacock_terms. The one example in my previous edit summary was just one short example. The following are some additional examples (again, not an exhaustive list) of problematic wording: The roots of Tusculum College are buried deep in early American frontier history.

In 1794, George Washington was president of a young country and the state of Tennessee was still two years away from becoming a reality.

From the outset, the flux of early American culture was reflected in the life of the institution. As the pioneer settlers thrived, so did the College. As the area was torn apart during the Civil War, so were the two institutions that are Tusculum’s twin roots.

Ultimately, the College survived it all. It endured the Civil War through the merger of the two institutions. It made it through financial difficulty and near-disastrous enrollment droughts during World War I and World War II.

...a living memorial to this notable family.

In 1984, Tusculum College made a major commitment to serve adult students in extended campus locations throughout East Tennessee. Tusculum’s rich heritage provides a firm foundation that sustains extended learning opportunities for adults through the Graduate and Professional Studies Program.

Timeline[edit]

The new timeline looks remarkably similar to a timeline on http://ajmuseum.tusculum.edu/tcarchives.html . I hope there is not a copyright on that copied content... (Anyway, is the entire detailed timeline truly encyclopedic?) --orlady 21:29, 21 July 2007 (UTC)
