For the second consecutive year,Redeemer University College has earned an “A” in Overall Student Satisfaction in The Globe & Mail’s University Report Card, released on October 23. The newspaper’s seventh annual survey of student satisfaction, produced in partnership with The Strategic Counsel, graded 55 universities on a number of key criteria by surveying 43,400 Canadian university students about their experiences. In the survey, Redeemer scored high marks in a variety of core areas: Quality of education: A+; Quality of teaching:A; Student-Faculty interaction: A+; Ease of course registration: A-; Campus atmosphere: A+; Extracurricular activities: A-; Class sizes: A+; Student services: B+; Overall student satisfaction with university: A; Campus technology: B+; Student residences: A; Academic reputation: B+; Building and facilities:A; Libraries B+. From last year to this year, students ranked Redeemer higher in the vast majority of criteria and our scores stayed the same in the remainder. “We promised last year that we would work to better each student’s experience,” notes Richard Wikkerink, Registrar and Senior Director of Student Development at Redeemer.. “And we make that same promise again this year; we will continue to seek out and be attentive to our students’ needs.” This was Redeemer’s second year participating in the survey; it is in the category of universities defined as having enrolments less than 4,000.
