Cleaned up[edit]

Cleaned things up a bit. Does anyone have any idea what this is supposed to mean?

The Lariat won the Associated Collegiate Press Best of Show second place for 2-year weekly newspaper at the annual College Media Convention in Kansas City, Missouri in 2005.

Second place for 2-year weekly newspaper? Huh? I just removed it because I have no idea how it's supposed to read. If anyone has any idea what that's trying to say, feel free to repair it.

Please do put references in to outside verifiable sources[edit]

The schools website is not enough. NLOleson 22:27, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Description of the College's name revision[edit]

This is how it is displayed currently.

"Saddleback College got its name from the slump (or Saddleback) between the twin peaks of Santiago and Modjeska in the Cleveland National Forest."

This is the suggested revision

"Saddleback College received its name from the shape (or Saddleback) between the twin peaks of Santiago and Modjeska in the Cleveland National Forest."*

The word "got" as a verb does not present the schools integrity as a learning institution being informal, the word "received" as a less simplified manner in which to convey honored with. The word "slump" is not a proper verb/ noun for the description regarding the structure as in regard to the parts of a saddle, although the word "seat" would be the proper noun it should be disregarded because of the vernacular identification of a body part so the word "shape" is advised instead.

  • The connotation of later words is positive in context to the former as being negative. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.57.207.247 (talk) 23:06, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
