This sounds more like an advertisement for the university than a Wikipedia entry.
- Maybe take the opportunity to change it? KimvdLinde 19:28, 17 March 2006 (UTC)
- Good point. However, I don't know a lot about the university, which would make the research more difficult. 4 April 2006
- I concur it sounds like an advert. I will tag it. Benjaminstewart05 09:52, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
Here's a bit of background from a former student: The Shawnee State University facilities were orignally a regional branch of Ohio University (Athens, Ohio) known as Ohio University Portsmouth Branch (OUPB). OUPB merged with Scioto Technical College (Lucasville, Ohio) in 1986 to form the current incarnation. The former campus of Scioto Technical College is now occupied by Scioto County Joint Vocational School. During the transitional phase of the merger (1985), the school newspaper was called "The Gemini." School mascot is a bear. [3 June 2006] [Correction 9 June 2006]
Thanks in part to local sources which included the newspaper and memory in my mind, I've added some background history to the project. It has come a long way. The university was once comprise of two colleges and Ohio University once had a branch before moving it to Ironton after the creation of Shawnee State college.-user:Spongefan

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.
