How I chose my engineering major

The Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science (FEAS) is the second largest faculty at Ryerson, and for good reason! Engineering is a profession of immense scope. Eight undergraduate engineering degree programs are offered by FEAS: Aerospace, Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Industrial and Mechanical. However, many first-year students struggle with choosing their engineering program. There’s […]

Learning from Home, As Seen Through GIFs

Fall 2020, it’s going to be an interesting semester. In order to keep everyone safe and healthy we’re moving most of our classes online. It might take some getting used to, but hopefully we’ll all learn new and interesting things from the safety of our homes. We no longer have to do our hair early […]

Bye WhyRyerson, I’ll miss you

I can’t believe I’m writing this. Two years has flown by so quickly, and my time at Ryerson and WhyRyerson has come to an end.  Thank you WhyRyerson readers for allowing me to share my transfer journey, and my time at Ryerson with you all. Moving to Toronto and transferring schools was the best decision […]

Mad Men Marketing Myths

Mad Men is an entertaining show that displays what ad agencies were like in the 1960s, but unfortunately, the show creates some myths about what the marketing industry is like today. I’m almost done the Marketing Management program at Ryerson, and I have various marketing internship and co-op experiences under my belt, so I thought […]

An Interview with Fourth Year Architectural Science student: Tanya Jordan

This week I’m interviewing the first person I met in university… my first-year roommate! Despite not knowing each other before university and having different programs, we instantly connected because we happened to both be from Kitchener/Waterloo and have passion for our fields. Tanya is a fourth-year Architectural Science student and I can’t wait to share her Ryerson […]

Time Management Ideas

Whether you’re working from home or going to school everyday, time management can be a challenge. As much as we love staying up all night to hand in an assignment the next day, we could really live without it. Imagine it, you make a schedule and follow through so that you can get eight hours […]

The Co-op program for business students is changing fast. Did you know that every year the Business Career Hub (BCH) has been intaking more and more students into the Ted Rogers Co-op Program? In parallel to that, just over the last year, I have noticed companies doubling their Ryerson co-op intakes as well – which is so incredible […]

Imagine this: you’re sitting in Balzac’s on the Ryerson campus and a group of six friends walk in and go to the table that… always seems to be empty for them? They talk loudly about their day, love lives and something about a break. This isn’t the first time you’ve seen them—they’re here all the […]

2020 marks the year that many of us are stuck at home. We may be living in what can feel like a very weird world at times, but 2020 also marks the year some of you have graduated from high school and are moving into university! Or perhaps you’re joining us as a transfer student […]
