=WORST PAGE EVER[edit]

I went to this college and I am ashamed that I have. Its such a joke. This page reflects the laziness of fanshawe students. It has around 14,000 students a year and not one is willing to upgrade this page. They display a diploma???? why would you do that, who does that? what a trash school. Pay some one in the recruiting department to fix up this crap page. What a joke —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.224.218.81 (talk) 21:56, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Londonflag.PNG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Londonflag.PNG 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 this Wikipedia article 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 06:04, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Fanshawe College Riots[edit]

Early on the morning on March 18th after St. Patrick's day, over 1000 people, comprised primarily of Fanshawe students, rioted in the streets. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.69.85.157 (talk) 02:54, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

I suppose this is worthy of mention due to the worldwide press attention (from the BBC, at least), but is it really any different from any of the other Fanshawe riots? They do that pretty much every year. Adam Bishop (talk) 10:24, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Agreed, it's actually pretty common. Usually during frosh week there is a riot. But the riots happen off school property and one can't say for certain what percentage if any of the actaul rioters are in fact students of Fanshawe college. For these reasons it shouldn't be mentioned in the article. However if someone wants to start a London, Ontario riots article be my guest. UrbanNerd (talk) 03:48, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
I think it should be mentioned here, instead of the general London article, because of many sources stating that primarily Fanshawe students were rioting and some were suspended as a result. If there are riots like this every year, then those should be mentioned too. It may seem like this is being overemphasized, since there are no other sections for historical events, but that's only because the article needs more work. The solution should be to expand the article, rather than remove something relevant that received international news coverage. QU (talk) 04:16, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
Edit: I moved the info out of its own subheading so it's less conspicuous and inline with the rest of the history section. QU (talk) 04:19, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
The fact that eight Fanshawe students were suspended is what makes it relevant - not the riot per se. Previous information about the president was also removed, and that showed a lack of attention. Secondarywaltz (talk) 01:55, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
