Purpose[edit]

This is suppose to be about Whittier college yet it seems like an introduction on the various fraternities and sororities in the college.


Tried to fix that recently.


Nice pictures

Reason for NPOV tag[edit]

The 4th paragraph, regarding diversity, makes a claim that I believe is unverifiable. Namely, that the school is "the most diverse liberal arts college" in the U.S. The paragraph as a whole reads as propaganda. Are the verifiable facts regarding diversity at Whittier College that can go into that paragraph, or should it be removed? The Literate Engineer 01:13, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

I added some statistics from Whittier's website. Whittier also places fourth for campus diversity among liberal arts colleges, whatever that means - [1] - AdelaMae (talk - contribs) 11:20, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

I couldn't find a decent copy of the Whittier College logo to include in the "UniversityInfoBox" summary. There is a tiny one on their website, which would probably do well enough, but any other version might be better. Geeman 14:30, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

The Bugging Incident[edit]

The section on the bugging is uncited, and I've had trouble finding any reference to it other than those that point back to the wikipedia article--or that use information culled from it. Aside from references being sketchy how pertinent is this information to the article on the college itself? Does it really merit such treatment in the article? Geeman 05:42, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
