GA failed[edit]

This article needs a fair bit more work imho

  • The linking of dates and years in the article needs to be consistent. They need to be either all linked or none linked Done
  • When discussing year ranges and scoring ranges such as in the sports section, please use 1991–2006 and 28–0 not 1991-2006 or 28-0 Done
  • The list of alumni etc needs to be forked to a subarticle because it would simply overwhelm the article, and its existence would make the article complete, per the disclaimer. Also its presence and the explanations about the notablity of the people will also give undue weight to the entry, since most of the them became famous for things not particularly derived from their university education at SSU Done
  • Many of the sections are very short and would need to be expanded or merged.
  • The footnotes should be directly after the punctuation mark and not with apce in between or before the punctuation mark. Done
  • The lead needs to be expanded to better reflect the article and to summarise it more thoroughly and representatively. Done
  • There is something of a recentist bent in the history with parts about the court case and the two mentions of TV shows making an appearance at the university. In the scheme of things, the TV show is unlikely to be notable since it didn't permamently affect the course of the university's history and was merely a sideshow. Done
  • The history and the academic information on the university in general seems a bit sparse, since the school is neither new nor small. Can more details be added?
  • There should be a section about the governance of the unviersity, how the board works, where it gets funding and commerical partnerships from and the like.
  • The first half of the acdemic info section should be prosified Done
  • The article in general probably needs a bit more content
