We conclude our series on Canadian universities with a report card from four students from different disciplines and from across the country. Are today's universities degree-granting businesses hoping to attract "funding units" for maximum prestige? What is the role of digital technology in the classroom? We hear thoughtful, articulate and diverse opinions from these impressive young people about their university experience.  (p.s. The country's in good hands!)

Our guests are:

Moira Warburton, 4th year political science student, UBC, Vancouver
Trevor Deley, 2nd year graduate student in biology at Carleton University, Ottawa
Rowan Patrick Miller, 2nd year political science and classical studies student, UNB, Fredericton
Megha Sharma, 3rd year computer engineering student, Ryerson U., Toronto
