I’m proud to be a Ryerson student 24/7, but here are the moments that make me MOST proud!
When I meet someone new that has the same ambition (and sense of humor) as me
I’ve talked about the cool people at Ryerson manyyyy times, but I’ll probably never stop because I continue to meet amazing individuals that are intelligent, hilarious, and even teach me something new.
When I watch a Ryerson sports game
I get so into sports games (For example, I was recently in my room watching Ryerson play in the CIS semi-final game on TV and screaming and giving myself a hernia), and when I see a Ryerson team working hard to win a victory, it makes me so proud!
When I see how my courses are connected and how I can transfer my knowledge from one class to another
Sometimes it is difficult to understand why I’m taking some of the classes I take, and how they fit into my degree and career goals. But almost every time, I’ll apply a concept that I learned in a business class to something I’m working on in fashion, and it all makes sense.
When I find out that someone successful is an alumni or current student of Ryerson
We have famous and successful celebrities, YouTubers, business people and entrepreneurs among our list of alumni and current students. I guess there’s just something about being a Ram that spells success.
When I go to an event that I know will help me in the future
Most recently, the conference I attended with the Ryerson Communication and Design Society was amazing, taught me so much, and gave me a new wave of Ryerson (and FCAD) pride.
When it’s a perfect sunny day downtown
Toronto is beautiful, especially when the sun is out, there’s not a cloud in the sky, and the temperatures are in the positives. It always seems like everyone’s happier, everything looks better, and going to school downtown is more fun and has more possibilities.
What do you think you’ll be most proud of as a Ryerson university student?
