Additional third party sources[edit]

1 (page 8), 2 (see "Hot Spots on Campus"), 3, 4 (not a third party source but is still important for mentioning the Crim Dell area hosts four important wildflower species), 5 (the Crim Dell is even mentioned in The Insider's Guide to Colleges 2006), 6 (page 16; even the City of Williamsburg promotes the Crim Dell as a "point of interest" in its brochures), 7 (not a third party source but it is still notable in the fact that a campus tragedy occurred in the Crim Dell pond where a student accidentally drowned himself). -Jrcla2 (talk) 17:50, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

So (summarizing your findings), you've found that it's primarily used in advertising material, and outside of that, it's non-existent Tedickey (talk) 17:55, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
So (summarizing your generalizations), you didn't actually read everything then. A campus tragedy occurred there. It only involved one student and not 30+ (like the VT Massacre) so it didn't get as much press, but it was a tragic death nonetheless. I will add that bit into the article later (with sources, of course), as I do not feel like it right now. -Jrcla2 (talk) 17:58, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
He didn't jump into the bridge (which is the topic), but into a stream. Along the same lines, there are occasional deaths due to falling down an elevator shaft (perhaps you're planning to write a corresponding topic for occurrences like that at your school).

Correction. The article is the Crim Dell Bridge. The article is both about the bridge and the body of water (Crim Dell) it crosses. You may not like the sources he has provided, but they are more than sufficient to sustain notability. And yes, I imagine if a person died falling down an elevator shaft, I would expect that would verify the notability of both the building in which the elevator was located, and the company that maintained the elevator.
