...and the Flurry of University Media Releases

November 1, 2006

Congratulations to the uGuelph media relations department for being the first off the mark yesterday morning with their media release, "Students Rank UofG at Top of the Class," reporting on "3 A+'s, 14 A's, and 12 A-'s." Next came Western's release, "Western earns top mark for education quality," which humbly noted its C grade in co-op opportunities. Then came uWinnipeg's release, "UWinnipeg Rates High in Globe & Mail," which included considerable detail on initiatives and investments to address its priorities. Laura Dillman sent me a copy of Mount Allison's media release next, "Top Marks for Mount A." Then came Nipissing's media release, "Nipissing University has placed at the top of the charts again," ranking first overall for student residences and first on 9 criteria in its size category. Mid-afternoon came McMaster's media release, like most including a friendly quotation from the university president. (No doubt there will be more.)
