Yahoo! magazine ranks
Many users may take for granted the University's comprehensive
and ever-increasing method of electronic communication, with everything
from class registration to job applications now done online. However,
this use of technology hasn't gone unnoticed by some. Yahoo! Internet
Life, a magazine associated with the Web company, has rated U.Va.
eighth in its list of most wired universities and research schools,
up from No. 34 last year. The rankings were based on four categories:
access and infrastructure, administrative services, general resources
and student support.
"We are extraordinarily well-prepared in networking and information
services to faculty, students and administrators," said Robert
Reynolds, U.Va.'s interim vice president and chief communications
officer. See http://www.zdnet.com/yil/content/college/
