Cultural Studies - Radicalism Link[edit]

Octavabasso, I apologize for my incorrect linking of "radicalism" to "extremism". However, it is incorrect for you to have re-linked the page to radicalism, as it is a disambiguation page, and links to such are to be discouraged, and removed as soon as possible. If you wish, you can go to the page on radicalism, and choose which article you wish the current link to be changed to on the basis of what fits it the best. All apologies. -YK Times 17:49, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Hello friend. True that cultural studies programs are important, but... Dude: there are over one hundred! They're all over the UK, US, Canada, Mexico, Australia... Listing one is pretty random. The only one that is vital is the CCCS, which basically started cult studies. I think you should delete that link again, okay? Cheers, Dylan --Dylanfly 15:10, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Edit to DePaul University[edit]

Octavabasso, on the DePaul University page, you removed the description of St. Vincent de Paul as one "who valued philanthrophy." St. Vincent is considered the patron saint of charity and it's clear from his Wikipedia entry that work with the poor was his major focus. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_de_Paul It's relevant to the DePaul University entry because the university has a strong commitment to low-income students (usually about 25% or more of the freshman population), which it sustains because of its ties to St. Vincent. Would you consider another descriptor that might help make this linkage more clear? Kris (talk) 17:10, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
