Kean is very simply pronounced such as k-e-e-a-n despite what critiques say.

Suggestions[edit]

I added, cleaned up, and sorted through the info we had, as well as uploaded the logo. This is no where near complete. Maybe we can all list things we should add to it, and someone could work on it

Things to add

  • Buildings.
  • More Alumni.
  • More detailed history. I think there was an add put out by kean into the star-ledger that could be of reference. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.44.193.207 (talkcontribs) 21:23, 30 November 2006

Deleted portion on pronunciation of Kean as it belonged above in "pronunciaton" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.67.13.86 (talkcontribs) 03:12, 11 May 2007

Why no mention of the two or more years of chaos at Kean? Why no mention of the warning from Middle States on the possible loss of accreditation? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.231.29.54 (talk) 20:56, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Kean Neologisms[edit]

I deleted this unless there is a reason why this needs to be on the page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.44.193.207 (talkcontribs) 04:34, 18 December 2006

Pronunciation again[edit]

Is there a source on the pronunciation? I am from NJ and lots of ppl I know go to Kean and I've never heard anyone pronounce it "cane."-67.85.180.72 08:48, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

  • I've heard it pronounced both ways over the years. The real question is, does it matter? Does Duke University indicate to everyone that its name is phonetically /dook/? Mystache 14:50, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Elizabeth Torres[edit]

Removed. No real significant notability. She is a freelance motivational speaker, and won a writing contest. Although significant in her life, i do not feel this is wikipedia significant —Preceding unsigned comment added by Soccera2g (talkcontribs) 19:58, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Intramural Sports[edit]

Booty tag? Turkey trot? Can these be sourced or deleted? Edmundogg (talk) 00:46, 23 June 2010 (UTC)


Embezzlement?[edit]

Do I understand there is a financial scandal at this school? Paul, in Saudi (talk) 23:50, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
