North Bay Nugget - - OPINION - Nugget Staff

Nipiss­ing uni­ver­sity stu­dents are among the most sat­is­fied with their in­sti­tu­tion, ac­cord­ing to the an­nual rank­ing by Ma­clean’s mag­a­zine.

Nipiss­ing ranks sec­ond for over­all stu­dent sat­is­fac­tion, while it is 18th in a rep­u­ta­tional sur­vey among 19 pri­mar­ily un­der­grad­u­ate uni­ver­si­ties.

Nipiss­ing is ranked first in the sur­vey for stu­dent ser­vices.

Lake­head uni­ver­sity in thun­der bay is 11th for rep­u­ta­tion while Lau­ren­tian uni­ver­sity in Sud­bury is 13th.

“[Stu­dents are] re­ceiv­ing ed­u­ca­tion with a lot of qual­ity in­ter­ac­tion with pro­fes­sors, and a strong fo­cus on un­der­grad­u­ate re­search,” pres­i­dent Michael de­gagne said in the Ma­clean’s pro­file of the uni­ver­sity.

Ma­clean’s listed crim­i­nal jus­tice, bi­ol­ogy, and phys­i­cal and health ed­u­ca­tion as stand­out pro­grams, while “cool cour­ses” in­clude in­tro­duc­tion to game de­sign and de­vel­op­ment, and so­ci­ol­ogy of hu­man sex­ual be­hav­iour: Love, sex and in­ti­macy.
