Elevation Follow Up

Just a follow-up to my earlier post about the "elevation" to university status.

Exhibit A on the culture of hyperbole, exaggeration, and outright deceit that tends to permeate nearly all things George Wythe College and Thomas Jefferson Education:

In its September 2008 newsletter, GW makes the following statement:

In early 2008, George Wythe College applied to and met the requirements set forth by the State of Utah and was issued the name "George Wythe University" to be used at the board’s discretion.


REALITY: Shanon Brooks went to the Utah Department of Commerce website, checked the availability of the name "George Wythe University," and then paid $22 to register the name. END OF STORY.

You can check out the process for yourself on page 39 of this document.

They've been feeding the same line about accreditation being "just around the corner" to their students for years and years. What a dishonorable sham.
