An Ever-Rolling Stream[edit]

Does any one have publication details for a book called "An Ever-Rolling Stream?" This is a good history of this institution in the days when it was still known as Nene College, and would be good to be included as a reference to this article. By the way, am I right in thinking that the term "An Ever-Rolling Stream" comes either from the Psalms or the Book of Proverbs in the Hebrew Bible?ACEO 08:18, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Use of definite article[edit]

I know The University of Northampton extremely well, and notice that, since gaining university status, staff members are encouraged to refer to it as "The University of Northampton". So, could this article be improved by use of a definite article in its title?ACEO 18:49, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

University ratings[edit]

(I'm posting this to all articles on UK universities as so far discussion hasn't really taken off on Wikipedia:WikiProject Universities.)

There needs to be a broader convention about which university rankings to include in articles. Currently it seems most pages are listing primarily those that show the institution at its best (or worst in a few cases). See Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Universities#University ratings.

An ever-rolling stream[edit]

The full title of this book is "An Ever-rolling Stream: Ongoing Story of the Development of Higher Education in Northampton and Northamptonshire" and was written by David Walmsley. It was published by Leicester University Press in 1989, although LUP does not appear to be active anymore. Amazon lists some copies as being available through its new and used link. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.214.229.39 (talk) 16:03, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Keep an eye on this page - it will soon need updating[edit]

This article currently lists Ann Tait as the Vice-Chancellor, but she will be stepping down soon. We therefore need to keep close watch on this article, to ensure that it is properly updated (after all, Wikipedia, even compared with other online encyclopaedias, is an extremely up-to-date encyclopedia). ACEOREVIVED (talk) 18:26, 3 October 2009 (UTC) Ann Tait will be stepping down as Vice-Chancellor in September 2010, and the new person will be a man who I believe has some links with the University of Bournemouth.
