School of Communications now School of Media[edit]

Non-notable photos[edit]

I don't think posting the photos of non-notable buildings in the UIUC encyclopedia article is proper. Why not post photos of Lincoln Hall and the Psych building, and... You get the idea. Main quad and engineering quad are notable. --G3pro 14:23, 11 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Notable Alumni[edit]

What's wrong with keeping (Max Levchin, B.S. 1997, co-founder of PayPal) in Notable Alumni section? I have seen his name on a wall in Siebel Center. He also gave talks in CS dept some years ago. I do think he can be added to the notable alumni list. --Ragib 22:59, 25 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Poll on University Naming Conventions[edit]

A new survey has been created to assess consensus with respect to university naming conventions, specifically regarding the usage of terms like "University of Texas" vs. "University of Texas at Austin". The poll addresses this issue both in the specific case of the "University of Maryland" and proposes an amendment to Wikipedia:Naming conventions which could impact a large number of additional pages, including this one.

Transportation Section Off-Topic[edit]

The section on Transportation was becoming a mini-article on the MTD, which already has a page: Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District. Awards for the MTD mentioned on this page should be referenced in the main MTD article and actually be for campus. Thesquire 22:40, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)


Steven Salaita[edit]

I created an article on the Steven Salaita controversy. Content on this case is all over the place, information on the case is on here and on his page. I tried creating a redirect but people keep expanding the section with more and more information. I reduced the content on the main page because since there is now a main article, the content on the UIUC page in my belief should be a summery with a redirect with all the details on the main article page. Just like the other scandals and scandals at other school. The summary might need be be reworked a litte to best encompass the case. Pwojdacz (talk) 19:30, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

Seems to me like it might be a POV Fork, considering there is already a Steven Salaita page with a sizeable controversy section Breadblade (talk) 03:59, 1 June 2016 (UTC)
