Cleanup[edit]

Mst48 cleaned-up and organized the talk page on October 26, 2006. If there are objections message him. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mst48 (talkcontribs) 16:37, October 26, 2007

Controversy section readded[edit]

The whole controversy section was deleted. I sense an attempt to whitewash the fake YAF posters incident. So I put it back in. It is properly, and well-sourced. —Preceding unsigned comment added by HoundofBaskersville (talkcontribs) 18:01, November 16, 2007

Balance of Sections[edit]

This article spends more time on trivia about the Men's Basketball team than on GWU alumni or faculty. Given that one alumnus has won a Nobel Prize, this does seem absurd. Unless, of course, you think that Yinka Dare's two years here slam dunk the Nobel . . .

And one should not boast of an alumnus of dubious repuation (Lee Kun Hee). GWU actually has many interesting alummi. But are Scott Wolf and Darla Moore these alumni? The first is a minor actor, it seems, and the second's claim to fame is marriage to someone rich who donates lots of money.

The list of current faculty lists one individual who is DEAD (Abba Eban) and is skewed towards visiting profs of evanescent fame. This is the entry for a UNIVERSITY, not a way station for politics etc elsewhwere. GWU does have some well known profs -- why hide them?
