Current sources need to be improved. One way is to have the footnote point to an actual page. Also there needs to be additional footnotes for facts in your article. I can see 3 areas that need footnotes and there maybe more. Thank you Magnum Serpentine (talk) 00:32, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Copyright violation problems
The facility information had to be removed because it was a direct copy of information here on their website, in violation of WP:COPYVIO. I've retained the list of major facilities: if someone familiar with the school wants to write original descriptions of the buildings, please feel free to. I will add an infobox, logo and other info to at least keep the article looking respectable. --Bobak 23:07, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
Princeton Reviews lists this school as being homophobic and among the most close-minded schools. That should be in the article.. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 09:56, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
That Job Quote
90 percent of graduates were offered a job eh? Well, when I graduated from there in the 1990's I had made very good grades, yet no one offered me a job. When I applied to local areas (I.E. Locations less than a mile from there) I was asked, College of the what? Seems someone forgot to tell the business community they were suppose to accept people from this college. I dispute the 90% statement. No one approached me offering me a job while I was attending C of O or after I graduated. It never happened to me nor did it happen to friends who graduated from there when I did and long after. Magnum Serpentine (talk) 08:09, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
- Looks like this was corrected. Seven percent is a more realistic number for job placement Magnum Serpentine (talk) 07:49, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
Request for sources
First, on the 90% quote, could the author provide the sources for this. Also could the author provide a breakdown of the 90 percent quoat. A suggestion for the breakdown would be: Number of graduates who went onto work in their major, number of graduates who went into the general work force and not working in their major, finally, number of graduates who went onto a Masters or Doctorate work.

1960's to present section is very week. Does any one have relevant information to add? Anything to add to the becomes a four year college footnote? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 02:17, 24 July 2010 (UTC)
There were some criticisms that had been added to the timeline but it is not balanced and there is no context and there is no indication of impact. I moved them to a criticisms section since they don't seem big enough to warrant the timeline history. My instinct is that unless they are expanded, they should be nuked. I also removed the speakers info since it was out of date.Americasroof (talk) 18:23, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
