Laurier receives fourth place in MacLean’s rankings

When MacLean’s annual university rankings were released today, Wilfrid Laurier University was ranked fourth in the country in the primarily undergraduate category.

“Laurier tends to do well in these surveys, [because] our students tend to have a high opinion of the quality of education they’re getting here, [as well as] the overall student experience,” said Kevin Crowley director of news and editorial services.

Falling behind Mount Allison, Acadia and UNBC, Laurier tied for fourth place with St. Francis Xavier, making WLU the top-ranking Ontario university in its category.

“Overall we want to maintain the high quality of education that was reflected in the survey and just continue to work on areas where we could do better,” said Crowley.

“The bottom line is that students are very satisfied with the education they’re getting here at Laurier,” he added.

Top ranking universities:
Medical Doctoral: McGill (fifth consecutive year)
Comprehensive: Simon Fraser (second consecutive year)
Primarily undergraduate: Mount Allison (third consecutive year)
