Globe and Mail Canadian University Report Card – Brescia had a great report card

October 26 , 2011

London, ON – Brescia brings home a great report card with plenty of A’s. Continuing to be one of the leading universities in Canada, Brescia outperforms in the very small (under 4,000) category according to this year’s Globe & Mail Canadian University Report.

Although tied with a few other universities, our “A” ranking brought us first in Canada in Libraries and in Academic Counselling. In addition, we placed second in the following categories: Student-Faculty Interaction; Campus Atmosphere; Class Size; Most Satisfied Students; Instructors’ Teaching Style; Reputation with Employers; Buildings and Facilities; and Recreation and Athletics.

And last, but by no means least, Brescia was in the sixth spot overall, out of all 60 universities polled, in the “Personality Test” category, where students were asked to answer the following question: “Academically, is your university nurturing and supportive?”

This year’s Canadian University Report reflects the opinion of 33,000 undergraduate students polled across the country. Please click here to see the survey results.
