Annual survey gives York high marks in core areas

TORONTO, October 31, 2006 -- Today the Globe & Mail released its fifth annual survey of student satisfaction ? the University Report Card. In the survey ? which grades universities rather than arbitrarily ranking disparate ones ? York scored high marks in core areas:


Faculty knowledge A-

Libraries A-

Network availability A-

Quality of Education B+

Number of courses B+

Overall student satisfaction B+

Rob Tiffin, York University?s Vice-President, Students commented:
?These are really encouraging results from the people who matter ? the students ? and testimony to the innovative academic work and academic support here at York. It is important to us that we deliver the kind of experience students appreciate and we are extremely pleased to be showing such strong progress in the key areas of academic life and of student satisfaction. We will continue to prioritize the student experience as we go forward.?

Richard Fisher, York?s Chief Marketing & Communications Officer added:
?The Globe & Mail University Report Card is a useful tool for us because it deals with student satisfaction at the point of delivery ? in the university ? not abstract statistical measures disconnected from the student. This is a strong endorsement from our own students that York is on the right track and moving forward fast as we approach our 50th year.?

The Globe & Mail University Report Card is based on detailed responses from over 30,000 students from 49 universities across Canada. York University is in the category of large universities, those defined as having enrolment of 25,000 students or more. The remaining three categories of universities are divided into medium, small and very small. The full report can be accessed at www.globeandmail.com/reportcard.

Once again the Yorkies are trying to find any hope to be proud of. Lets look at the cat. that really matters:


-----------------------------UofT---Ryerson---York
Overall quality of Edu. B+ A- B+
Overall Acad. Rep. A B- B-
Overall Qual. of Career Prep C+ B+ C+
Overall Univ. Atmosphere B- B+ B
Rep. Of Graduate Studies A C B
Rep. Of Under Grad Studies A- B B-
Rep. Of Specific Study area A- B+ B
Rep. of Univ. Among Employers A B+ C+
Satisfaction of Univ. B B+ B+

These are cat. that matters to employers. Seems once again you are in Last position Yorkie. If you are going to quote a ranking, next time make sure you have something to compare it to, else you look like the true Yorkie. Based on these Ranking even Ryehigh looks way better than York!

^ The above loser just selectively choose the categories to make York looks bad.

This is called biased observation.

You guys can´t possibly be University students.

If you were, you´d realize that asking 1st year students to grade their Universities overall educational quality, reputation among employers, etc. is absolutely ridiculous. Ask students about campus atmosphere, not their library when they have no other experience or NO experience to compare it to.

Globe and Mail is just a sorry attempt to make more money.

As a McGill student, I believe York is better than UofT. At least they don´t admit every moving object. Plus, they ranked BETTER in Globe and Mail Survey!!!

Conclusion: If I hadn´t been able to get into McGill, I would rather choose York than UofT.
