Notes[edit]

I've redone the template based on the one used by Tufts University. -Hollis1138 16:04, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

I don't mind expanding the U of I navbox, but if all it is is a redlink massacre, I recommend starting in your userpage and launching it officially when those red links are filled in with meaningful content. ~ trialsanderrors 16:25, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
Good call, I'll work on fixing those redlinks too. -Hollis1138 16:33, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
OK, I take this off my watchlist, but you should still include this link to the official school colors. ~ trialsanderrors 16:49, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
I've created pages for all of the schools, albeit some of them are stubs, but now the template is complete and there are no redlinks. -Hollis1138 18:10, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
I've changed the font to Helvetica, the official font used by the University in its logo.Chiwara 00:11, 25 May 2007 (UTC)
I suggest that you change the template to model it after Notre Dame. Libertyville | Talk 13:02, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

What is your criteria for adding things to the student section? Alumni • Daily Illini • Illini Media • Illinois Loyalty • Marching Illini • Orange Krush • Oskee Wow-Wow • Star Course • Residence Halls • WPGU. Alot of those are arbitrary student groups. Daily illini and WPGU are derivatives of Illini Media, and all of those are not owned by UofI, they are separate private entities. I sincerely do not think star course belongs there at all as it is an advertising club and has basically nothing to do with UIUC itself and I will remove it. I am also going to get rid of Daily Illini and WPGU as they fall under Illini Media. The two songs also do not make sense to be in here Chipotlehero 19:15, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

The songs are related to the school and so is everthing else that was on there!!! 76.217.113.138 14:21, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Added Alma Mater (I think?)[edit]

I'm a new editor to Wikipedia, so I'm not certain I did this right. I've expanded the Alma Mater (Illinois sculpture) article from a stub today, and then I went back and added this template at the bottom of the page. Do I need to do anything else? Chris.ridgeway (talk) 22:47, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
