After seeing the documentary Frat House, which won two Sundance Film Festival awards in 1998, I was curious as to what the identity of the unnamed college was. Apparently it was Muhlenberg, as referenced here:


The article reads like a brochure. —Vespristiano 03:40, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Seems to me this is mainly because of some weasel wording without factual basis provided in the article. That's only a couple of sentences or so; take them away, and this looks like any other college stub. Johnleemk | Talk 11:34, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Clarification or revision necessary[edit]

"they created an independently-run student web publication, largely controlled by the dean." So is it independent or not? From what I can tell, its pretty independant of the College administration. This portion of the article makes no sense, and more importantly does not reflect reality, and should be revised. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 05:03, 13 April 2007 (UTC).

Re: Clarification or revision necessary[edit]

It is (or possibly was) not so independent. According to a student at the time, this was common knowledge. After the Muhlenberg Weekly had run a number of somewhat negative articles, the administration felt that it was bad publicity for the school, and created The Muhlenberg Advocate in response. Despite being labeled an independent publication, the dean still held a fair amount of influence over the content, and it became the publication that is sent to parents and prospective students.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 18:17, 11 May 2007 (UTC).

Re: Re: Clarification or revision necessary[edit]

I wrote for the Advocate in 2001. It was created by a group of students, and it is certainly not sent to prospectives--it's an ONLINE newspaper. No member of the administration was involved in its creation or administration. You've heard an old-wives tale. 14:34, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
