As I have finished up my final classes and exams, I only found it fitting to do a post on how my first year of university has been, and boy has it been an interesting journey.
At times I felt like this:
I did a lot of this:
But overall I felt on top of the world for most of it:
Not only was I super happy with my job (go UAR woo!), my program, my residence experience but I also was also very proud of my extra-curricular activities I was a part of! These opportunities allowed me to grow as an individual and become the person I am today. Everyone told used to tell me that you “change” once you get into university and I used to look at them like they were crazy. But now I know what they meant, you grow as an individual, but it is for the better! University is a time for you to explore new opportunities you may have never been to exposed to and this is a great way to expand both as a student and as an individual! But before I get too sappy on y’all, I thought I would make a list of my “tops” from this year!
Overall Favourite Memory: When I got my job offer for Ryerson Residence next year! 🙂
Favourite Class: Layout and Typography lab with the superb Jay Wong. This was my favourite class because the amazing prof allowed me to be reconnected with my passions!
Favourite Semester: Second!
Favourite Ryerson Event: RCDS Celebration Bash!
Favourite GCM Event: GCM Halloween!
Favourite Toronto Experience: Discovering the city during Frosh week with my new floormates!
Favourite Place to Eat on Campus: Oakham Café with my best friends!
Favourite Place to Eat off Campus: Jack Astor’s (just because of the superb patio)
Favourite Learning Experience: My work experience with UAR, being able to learn so much as a Student Ambassador will definitely benefit me in the future!
Overall you can see that I have learned and experienced so much this year (and I’ve only been here for one year, can’t wait to see this list after 4 years!). I’m so excited to continue my Ryerson journey and I hope you all have had as amazing of school years as I have! Signing off for one final time, have a great one Ryerson, I’m glad I could share my experience with you.
