For the second year, media artists Patricio Davila and Dave Colangelo present In the Air, Tonight, a month-long reactive architecture installation that transforms the LED facade of the Ryerson School of Image Arts and Ryerson Image Centre into a glowing beacon that draws attention to and helps raise money for the growing problem of homelessness.” (Ryerson Today)

“Graduating students need to evolve with a changing job market – why should that be any different for a university Career Centre? For the 2014-15 school year, the Ryerson Career Centre has introduced a new model of connecting students and employers, and putting Ryersonians on the career path from the moment they enter campus. The new Ryerson Career Model seeks to integrate the Career Centre into students’ schedule on a faculty-by-faculty basis, with tailored sessions and 24/7 access points available across a student’s university career.” (Ryerson Today)
