City of Neighbourhoods Ep. 5: Harbourfront

Visiting the Harbourfront is a perfect way to spend a day or a night in the city. It’s really unfortunate that many people who visit our city don’t realize how gorgeous our waterfront is. Yes, we’re known for busy streets and high-rises but, come on! The Harbourfront deserves more recognition. Don’t believe me? Watch the vlog […]

Best Libraries in Toronto

Arthur spoke nothing but the TRUTH when he told us that having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a library card! As a writer and English student, I remain partial to libraries.

City Of Neighbourhoods: Ep. #4 – Yorkville

For episode 4 of City of Neighbourhoods I decided to check out one of the must luxurious spots in Toronto, Yorkville!

University Freedom: What It Means And What To Do About It

As a seasoned residence advisor I have seen my fair share of move-in days. All over campus you can feel the excitement, the nervousness and the overwhelming feeling of uncertainty.

There is no snack more Canadian than a classic donut. While Tim Hortons donuts are good on points of convenience and price, Toronto’s donut scene has so much more to offer for your taste buds. We’re a city that loves donuts so much that last year someone created a donut map of the TTC! Use […]

Notes from a Fourth Year Me to a First Year Me

I just completed my final month of university, which is scary and exciting at the same time. I went from being a small-town girl, embarking upon the city with a bright-eyed idealism to a cynical broke student with no future prospects. Just kidding, Ryerson prepared me for the real world, and I’m happy to say […]
