I tend to take a lot of photos during my commute and strolls around campus, so I thought I’d share some of my personal pics with you. Hopefully they will give you a taste of what you’d likely be seeing on a daily basis once you accept your offer to Ryerson.
As Ryerson students, we’re lucky (most of the time) to be a part of the hustle and bustle of Downtown Toronto. Expect to see a lot of people from different walks of life, plenty of ads and movie posters, and cars and streetcars zooming by you as you walk to and from class.
Ryerson…bright and early in the morning
Having class at 8 A.M. sucks for the most part, but this photo I took one morning is probably one of my favourites. Even though it is super early (the street lights are still on!!), the way the lights reflect off our very own skating rink, as well as the calm feeling on campus before it’s packed with students really is beautiful!
I love learning, but, as you can see from my Snapchat pic, reading pages of textbooks and academic journal articles isn’t necessarily my favourite part of uni life. However, like it or not, textbooks are definitely one of the more common “sights” throughout our university experience.
Rumour has it that coffee runs through the veins of every uni student. Okay, probably not true, but it may as well be. And if coffee isn’t your drink of choice (although it may be in the next year or two), you’re likely going to be seeing maaaaaany of these cups in the future.
Contrary to popular or personal belief, there are trees and nature and stuff on campus! These nature views may not be as easy to find as, say, Starbucks, when you’re in the city, but here is proof that trees do exist on campus, and look pretty darn good too.
Ted Rogers School of Management
Although I’m not in a business program, I’ve probably had a third of my classes in the TRSM building so far, and it’s my favourite building at Ryerson. And along with the chance to pass by H&M and admire their display windows, I also can’t help admiring the business building as I walk to class on a nice sunny day.
Attending lectures is also inevitable in university, which I’m sure you already know. But what you may not know is that many of our classes are held in the movie theatre located directly across from Yonge-Dundas Square. The room is big, the seats are comfortable, the screens are huge, and personally, it makes lectures so much more relaxing.
The Image Arts Building at Night
It took me almost 2 years to snap a picture of the Image Arts building all lit up and fabulous, but it was worth the wait. Bright lights adorn the outside of this building once the sun sets, and the way it illuminates the campus is absolutely stunning.
What are you most excited to see as a future Ryerson student?
