Faculty E-mails[edit]

I think it looks tacky and confusing lisiting every faculty member along with their e-mail. If no one can make a resonable case for keeping it I'm going to edit it out on Wednesday, July 5th 2006.

I removed them; barring anyone's offering a reason the edit should be reverted, this page still needs a lot of clean-up.

Removed image(s)[edit]

Certian images have been removed by me because they have been added to a category that makes them speediable, most likely Category:Images with no copyright tag. Kilo-Lima|(talk) 16:47, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Poughkeepsie Town/City[edit]

I'm fairly new to wikipedia, made a few dozen edits and finally decided to make a real account. Since I'm at Marist, this seems like a good item for me to clean up, so I'll take a look at getting some data together with real sources. First thing I notice, however, is that everywhere lists Marist as being in Poughkeepsie, NY, as in the City of Poughkeepsie. Its not. Its very much in the Town of Poughkeepsie, and this can be independantly verified by http://geoaccess.co.dutchess.ny.us/parcelaccess/ . Seems like a large change, is it kosher to make this change? Porkrind 04:00, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

I would say so. Marist isn't in the city. I believe they pride themselves on being in a suburban area. Next time just make the change, especially if you have a cite. then just wait to see if someone discredits your cite.

-Marist is actually in the city borders, but has some kind of paying agreement with the town to claim it is in its borders. This allows it to claim a lower crime rate in its area. (A Marist Alumnus) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 12.47.208.34 (talk) 14:55, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Rewrite of History[edit]

I've made a major edit for the "History" section. They're always saying "Be bold" eh? I'm aware sources still need to be cited, and I'll be doing that, but I felt that what I had saved up was better enough to be worth posting, espically considering the previous version didn't cite anything either!

Fair use rationale for Image:Marfoxes.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Marfoxes.gif 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 05:12, 6 June 2007 (UTC)


Fair use critiria were already specified in the image in question. I've added a header in the exact format described in Wikipedia:Fair_use_rationale_guideline so bots will catch it in the future. Porkrind 15:25, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Cites[edit]

I've added sources for a bunch of stuff. About half are not considered strong sources, since they originate from the college. If you have others, by all means please use them. I added them since they're better than nothing. Porkrind 04:25, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Local Involvement section[edit]

I've added a local involvement section, since its contents never really fit right in "history". Its woefully incomplete. Please add content as you can. Porkrind 05:53, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

Written like a brochure[edit]

Someone from the Marist PR department must have gotten their hands on this one. The article reads like an advertisement. Lots of information here that is not important, and probably only interesting to people already attending the school, or living in Poughkeepsie. The "history" section is particularly bad, filled with pretentious subtitles like: "Marist finds Technology" and "The Future." Someone clean this up, for the love of encyclopedias everywhere. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 12.47.208.34 (talk) 11:49, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes, but does using a hammer in lieu of a screwdriver work well? (talk→ BWilkins ←track) 17:54, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
Editing down is always better then having something that is drivel. It is the equivelent to a vanity page, as far as I am concerned.


The rankings section is very carefully worded to make the college seem competitive. For example, it says "Marist was ranked 10th out of 172 universities in the category Regional Universities (North)." Why not just list its national ranking? This is not only what many college entries do but would seem to give a more accurate representation of its standing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.217.252.210 (talk) 21:23, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

The problem is that often the only people that care enough to watch edits on a school's page are the PR department and alumni of that school. I'll edit it down to a more reasonable entry, but I doubt it will stay that way for long. Justintbassett (talk) 21:09, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

The Hancock Center consttruction is complete as of May 2011, and it's almost ready for full classroom use in the fall, — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.124.227.243 (talk) 05:54, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Clean Up[edit]

I cleaned the page up the best I could and added several sections.

I hope people agree it is an improvement. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Amst94 (talkcontribs) 16:02, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
