We have read your suggestions but not have had time to implement/think much on any of them. Sorry! Chapter is a bit rushed as I am running on 2hr of sleep.
Personal gripe, but American English colloquially treats college and university as the same thing. While I and people not in America may treat them like they are truly separate, for the sake of simplicity, this chapter, and probably subsequent chapters, will interchange the words as is in American(ized) English.
