I’ve been around the block a couple of times. I grew up in Boston, Massachusetts and moved to Toronto at the age of six. I only became a Canadian citizen ONE MONTH AGO. But does that mean I’m a purebred, tried and true American? No! I am a Canadian national LOYALIST… with a little perspective. […]

Let’s face it, attending school in the summer is rough. For Ryerson students, though, studying through the warmer months is easier thanks to the handful of fun patios that we’re surrounded by.

Whatever the case may be, consider if you’ve ever experienced ‘the moment.’ The: oh-my-god-why-did-I-buy-that-cardigan-now-I-can’t-have-dinner-moment.

In fact, according to this website, Toronto is the number one most expensive city to live in Canada! But there’s a reason we […]
Living on campus isn’t the only option you have to experience downtown life at its fullest. I have spent both my years at Ryerson living in off-campus accommodations.
