Reformatting[edit]

The school song box doesn't look right on this page, could this be re-formatted in a better way? Dross82 21:41, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

This article reads like a brochure put out by the university - could use some serious editing.-John —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.198.165.41 (talk) 22:19, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Re: Reformatting[edit]

100% agreed, I'm looking to do it now. I'm also looking to put a detailed analysis on 'School Spirit/Student Lifestyle', not sure if how the University would take it if I included something about halloween at this school, but w'll c ;)

To be frank, who cares what the school will think. Chances of them looking at this page are close to nil anyway. Its clear that no edits to this page have yet been made by any school admin's so I doubt they've seen it.

Be careful about writing it from your personal experience though. Wipipedia only allows for proven information from reputable sources, not off-hand experience. As a former Bishop's student, I would however agree that the 'school spirit/student lifestyle' is an important factor of the what makes the school what it is. Good luck!

Thanks for the advice, still looking into it, as for reputable source we do have a couple national news stories every couple of septembers. Also 'documented evidence' could add to the reputability of the information at hand, including our own newspaper, and yes digital camera pics. Still working on hard, at hardly working, but I'll get to it.

New stuff[edit]

Hello all. This old alumnus just exchanged a (colour) image of the Bish flag for the old (B&W) logo. The logo would be better, but I like the colour. I also fiddled with other stuff in the "box". Bilingual name: per how it appears on the Bish web site (and unlike the U de S site ;). You may want to remove the "tildes" - my artistic licence on a bilingual name. I also added the (Lennoxville) parts, as the "arrondisement Lennoxville" is still a legal part of Sherbrooke. Let me know what you think. Esseh 03:31, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Spanish Version[edit]

Hello everyone!!

I don't know if you are interested in have a spanish versión of this article, because I'd really like it to do it, if you are agree, of course. I used to be a Bishop's exchange student, and I was such a great experiance in my life.

Well let me know about a spanish version... take care. rgarcia008 10:15, 6 May 2008 (UTC-6) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.147.113.238 (talk)

Definitely, please go ahead! MTLskyline (talk) 22:27, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Article split[edit]

It would be easier to reach a decision on this if the editor who suggests splitting the article first outline the advantages here (there exist longer lists of noted alumni for many university articles on Wiki that are not split). Thanks.--Jumbolino (talk) 07:59, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

By way of example, please check Notable alumni section in McGill University article: no split involved nor does one seem neccessary. Moreover, the title proposed, List of Bishop's University people, is misleading as it implies that noted former alumni have an on-going association with the university (which is not true for each notable listed). We're dealing with a university, not a city. If no feedback on this is forthcoming, I'll be removing the tag within the next few days. --Jumbolino (talk) 14:42, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
