universities that dont do research are not known outside of the province (eg. guelph, nippising, and other crappy universities), but many of them aren´t that great anyway (compared to the better universities)

my personal 3 underrated universities are carleton, ryerson, and laurier. i never said they are elite universities; i just think that they deserve more credit than people give them. carleton and ryerson are excellent schools for aerospace and mechanical engineering. ryerson is also known for its journalism program. laurier isn´t an elite business school, but pretty good nonetheless. i also like its dual degree program in business and computer science (there are a few other combinations as well)

i´d still pick UofT, UW, queen´s, or mac over these universities any day.

What is up with Laurier? I think it is not that good. some people say their BBA PROgram is good, but if you know anything about commerce or business programs you can quickly see that their curriculum and the electives offered in their finance department is nothing special. If you want a good education in finance, I suggest you attend Mcgill, concordia (yes, for sure), UofT, UBC or Ivey. The rest are shit.

I think Laurier is known outside Canada for archaeology because of a dig they have in Jordan or Syria.

My vote for most under-rated is St. F-X in Nova Scotia.

Well, the problem is that these small schools do not always have the best elective offerings. It is the truth, do not deny it. There are many advantages of attending an Urban University. You meet along of people from around the World and I think it is a good experience.

The University of Alberta by far. It boasts the highest number of "Academic All-Canadians" of any Canadian university. Academic All-Canadians are honour roll students and star athletes. The best of both worlds. In addition, U of A is ranked in the top 5 in attracting research funding. Besides western Canadians, U of A is unkown becuase it is in freezing cold and boring Edmonton.

York University is highly under-rated by MaClean´s.

Schulich School of Business, Osgoode Hall Law School and the Faculty of Fine Arts are top schools not just in Ontario and Canada but the world. These schools are the best and among the most respected both in Canada and the globe.
Besides these schools, York also boosts top notch programs in Psychology, Sociology, Political Science, History and Women´s Studies. York University has the largest amount of professional social scientists and humanitists than any other universities. In fact, York is aka "Canada´s liberal arts school".

Geek and geek schools have nothing to do with it.

Universities are primarily for academics. Collegiate sports are fun but secondary, as in RECREATIONAL. You think we should emulate the American model and see top schools recruit athletes who can barely read? I love track and hockey but I´d be embarrassed to go to a jock school.

"aka Canada´s liberal arts school"?? WTF? Who calls it that? York´s socsci and humanities don´t even compare to UofT´s, and it´s in the same city so calling it "Canada´s liberal arts school" is too much of a stretch to even fool the locals.

And WTF are "professional social scientists and humanitists"? As in Phds who teach? Don´t tell me York claims to have the largest faculty in Canada too LOL

York University´s Faculty of Graduate Studies is Ontario´s second largest graduate school offering graduate degrees in a variety of disciplines, such as psychology, which is the largest in Canada. There are several joint graduate programmes with the University of Toronto and Ryerson University. The University has also been traditionally strong in arts and social sciences: York´s Faculty of Arts is the largest in Canada and the school has the greatest number of humanists and social scientists in Canada. The political science department, a leading centre for the study of radical political economy, has been singled out in Maclean´s annual ranking of universities. Its history department is especially strong in Canadian history. The School of Women´s Studies at York University is one of the oldest of its kind and offers the largest array of courses in this field in the country, some of which are offered in French. The Canadian Centre for Germanic and European Studiesis co-housed at York University and Universit? de Montr?al. The Centre was awarded to York University and Universit? de Montr?al by the German Academic Exchange Service.

The Faculty of Fine Arts also enjoys an excellent reputation, offering programmes such as ethnomusicology and a degree in cultural criticism referred to as "cultural studies"; York´s joint Bachelor of Design programme with Sheridan College is the first and largest such joint programme in the province of Ontario. York´s Faculty of Education (also known as the "Toronto School of Liberal Education") is distinguished by the unusual amount of teaching experience that students acquire. The prestigious Osgoode Hall Law School is Canada´s largest and among its oldest, having moved from a downtown location to the York campus in 1969 following the requirement that every law school affiliate with a university.

While engineering is new to York University, the school has long been involved in certain niche areas related to engineering within its Faculty of Science, now Faculty of Science & Engineering. Space projects are a particular strength, and York offers both a unique Space & Communication Sciences undergraduate degree and a pair of small telescopes on campus to help support it. York?s Centre for Vision Research, for example, has developed a ?virtual reality room? called IVY (Immersive Virtual Environment at York) in order to study spatial orientation and perception of gravity and motion. The Canadian Space Agency and National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) use this research to strengthen astronauts? sense of ?up? and ?down? in zero-gravity environments; the room, a rare six-sided immersive environment in Canada, is made of the glass used in the CN Tower?s observation deck and includes walls, ceiling, and a floor comprised of computer-generated pixel maps.

York´s five libraries contain more than six-and-a-half million items including more than two million books and subscriptions to over 13,000 electronic journals. The Osgoode Hall Law School houses the largest law library in the Commonwealth of Nations. The Clara Thomas Archives contains the literary and personal papers of many notable Canadian cultural figures such as Margaret Laurence, Rohinton Mistry, Adele Wiseman, bill bissett, and others.
