Fair use rationale for Image:Edinboro New Fighting Scot.JPG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Edinboro New Fighting Scot.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:01, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Former name[edit]

Did it used to be called "Edinboro State College"? Badagnani (talk) 02:49, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Yes, and about 2 other names before that. Edinboro State College marked the transition from a soley teaching school (as in education degrees) to more of a generalized liberal arts school. Keithieopia (talk) 14:56, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

New Information[edit]

I added first hand information (I'm a graduate of Edinboro) to this article, first I added Delta Alpha Pi which supports the original argument that Edinboro supports persons with disabilities, and I tweaked the section on the pipe band; beforehand the article sounded like the pipe band was part of the marching band which is not the case at all, the two are separate entities and only play together at homecoming. Furthermore, there was a incorrect reference to Scotland the Brave being Scotland's Anthem, Scotland does not have a anthem and per the [Scotland the Brave] article, it ranks at best being second to a national anthem. Edinboro also plays a heavily modified version of the tune, in which the pipe band has to omit and add sections to the original "Scots Guards" standard pipe setting, making it a completely new song based loosely on Scotland the Brave.Keithieopia (talk) 14:56, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Mallory Lake[edit]

Wasn't Mallory Lake formed when they were breaking ground for the library? I'd heard they left the worksite on a Friday, and came back on a Monday to find it submerged. Is this true? 66.251.234.26 (talk) 12:57, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

No, the lake has always been there in some form. For a long time, the entire lower part of campus that it sits on was farms and marsh land similar to the areas by Ontario Street and behind the Copper Coin bar. The creek that flows through campus was rerouted to sustain the lake. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.3.139.184 (talk) 20:06, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
