A new report has been released that details what Canadian universities make the grade when it comes to student satisfaction, career preparation and the quality of education, among other criteria.
The Globe and Mail's Canadian University Report 2012 details 60 Canadian campuses that are attended by more than 33,000 undergraduates. It's the 10th year the newspaper has published the report, and in addition to giving grades for certain performance categories, it also provides insight into what employers often look for among job applicants who've recently graduated.
"The Canadian University Report is the ultimate guide to help students make the right choice about a crucial chapter of their lives," said Simon Beck, editor of the Canadian University Report. "For the last decade The Globe and Mail has provided Canada's most comprehensive snapshot of what students think about the universities they attend, and direct feedback from paying customers is more vital than ever."
Among the findings, the University of Western Ontario finished with an A-minus in the Most Satisfied Students category and received the same grade in the Quality of Teaching category.
The high grade may be reflective of students' abilities to prioritize and organize their lives. Portable storage containers can help students better prepare for exams and study sessions.
