Globe survey validates 'Canada's best student experience'
Western ranked first overall in 33 categories, tied for first in another 24 categories, and earned a total of five A-pluses, 20 straightA’s, and 19 A-minuses.

This fall, Western had good reason to celebrate the results of the Globe and Mail’s sixth annual University Report Card.

Just as we have in each of the previous five years that the Globe has asked students to rate their experience at universities across the country, Western has once again earned the highest grades among Canada’s large research-intensive universities.

This year’s survey reflects the opinions of more than 43,000 students at 53 universities – the largest sample group yet. Current students were asked to rate their schools on 78 measures, ranging from the quality of teaching to the quality of facilities.

Western ranked first overall in 33 categories, tied for first in another 24 categories, and earned a total of five A-pluses, 20 straight A’s, and 19 A-minuses.

Such high ratings from our students can be entirely attributed to the effort, commitment and dedication of the many people who contribute to our campus community. We are continually working to enhance the Western experience and it’s thanks to the generous contributions of donors like you that we are able to do so.

There is no better measure of how we are doing in pursuit of our University’s mission to provide Canada’s best student experience than the opinions of our students. And for six consecutive years now, our students have told us we combine a first-rate education with campus life better than any other large school in the country.

I wish to extend my sincere thanks and congratulations to all donors for your ongoing support of Western’s mission.
