Pretty sure Jim Morrison is not an alumnus of Loyola. His wikipedia article says he went to george washington high in DC. He should at least not be referred to as the lizard king in the alumni section.

Academics section?[edit]

What's up with the Academics section? All we've got there is a bit on the Forensics team -- I'm sure Loyola's got a lot more going for it smarts-wise...


Neutrality[edit]

Please avoid statement things like, "Baltimore's most revered" and "has produced hundreds of..." unless you can reference a document outlining this fact. Readers will see this as bogus and disregard the actual facts of the article. This is an encyclopedic article, not a school message board for how much Calvert Hall sucks.Wallstreethotrod 18:33, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

In the Academic section there is a comment about Loyola having the best average SAT scores for Baltimore Catholic schools. There really should be a reference there to begin with, but I would also like to know a source for this information for some discussions I have had with others regarding academics at Loyola vs. local public schools. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Iftaman (talkcontribs) 13:47, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

I've made some minor edits to the article to enhance neutrality, as much of it read like PR copy. Rfontana (talk) 03:34, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Deletions by "Lbcomm" (Loyola Blakefield Communications?)[edit]

I restored some material deleted by user "Lbcomm", specifically: Bradley Kuhn's account of a culture of corrupt tolerance of bullying at Loyola Blakefield in the 1980s; an alleged sexual abuse of a LB student by a LB teacher in the 1970s; and an anti-Semitic graffiti incident in the 2000s. In addition, "Lbcomm" removed Bradley Kuhn from the list of notable alumni; I have restored this.

I am tempted to assume that "Lbcomm" signifies the Loyola Blakefield Communications office. In any case, the deletions of the aforementioned material appear to be unjustified. If there is some editorial basis justifying the deletion of that material, please explain it here in this Talk page. Rfontana (talk) 05:50, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

I hardly think that the history section of this article is the right place for a crime blotter. Why this one crime (graffiti) and not others? In about 2 seconds of Googling I found this story (http://www.stanforddaily.com/2015/04/26/sae-painted-with-anti-semitic-graffiti/) about anti-semitic graffiti on Stanford's campus but it's (rightfully) not mentioned on the Wikipedia page for Stanford University. Similarly, Bradley Kuhn's account of bullying is not even included on his own page (where I think it belongs), despite mentioning that he attended Loyola Blakefield. The most I think could possibly be included in a factual encyclopedia is the first sentence, the others are simply uncorroborated opinion. Without further evidence of corruption beyond his assertions, I can't see why this ought to be included in the "History" section of this page. I think it could be appropriate as an inclusion on Bradley's page though. Djmarcin (talk) 22:13, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
