FAU in NY Times

We're still a "smaller" school…

Small wonder, then, that at elite institutions like Harvard, small liberal arts colleges like Dickinson, huge public universities like the University of Wisconsin and U.C.L.A. and smaller ones like Florida Atlantic University, women are walking off with a disproportionate share of the honors degrees.


At Harvard, 55 percent of the women graduated with honors this spring, compared with barely half the men. And at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, a public university, women made up 64 percent of this year's graduates, and they got 75 percent of the honors degrees and 79 percent of the highest honors, summa cum laude.

We may be "small" but it is nice to be mentioned in the same sentence as Harvard, Wisconsin and UCLA...

You have to look at the context. They mention "huge" schools. FAU is not a huge school. Although FAU has a larger campus than UCLA. Then they finish with "and smaller ones". I take that to mean smaller than the huge schools. OR its the same mistake made over and over.

It doesn't matter though. Someone out of 2000 college and universities chose FAU. Maybe FAU has one of the more disproportionate enrollments or graduation or both.

I agree, just the fact that FAU was mentioned with some long standing and very well established institutions is very cool indeed.
