Wilfrid Laurier University has ranked number one for student satisfaction according to a survey published by Macleans this week.

This is after 23,000 university students from across the country were surveyed by Macleans.

VP of student affairs, David McMurray, says Laurier owes its number one status to the many student leaders on campus.

"The peer-to-peer support is just tremendous. The students are remarkable in what they do and that combined with their academic program of choice is really complimentary, especially when they are involved in career development programs and activities," he says.

McMurray adds that student satisfaction starts in the classroom.

"Course instruction and high-quality teaching that takes place. Students rank us right at the top in terms of their academic experience in the classroom. Well, we're very very proud of that and we put a lot of effort into teaching and learning," he says.

This is the third year that Laurier has ranked number one for student satisfaction.

The University of Guelph and Brock University have come second and third place on the comprehensive student satisfaction list.
