Mind & Action: Ryerson Graduates Reflect on Their Experience
Ryerson is right in the heart of downtown.
It is super diverse, super welcoming, so no matter what race
or nationality you are, you will find your place at Ryerson. I think that the unique thing about
Ryerson is still the campus feel but being in such an incredible city – one of
North America’s biggest cities – you’re right downtown. We’re so close to the connections but
yet there’s this separate community here at Ryerson. The concert they had last
year for Frosh Week, when Drake and Future and a bunch of other artists came out, that was crazy to have them right here on Gould Street that’s right in the middle
of our campus. So that was awesome. They have a lot of cool stuff here. I would recommend Ryerson to someone else. I liked Toronto, I liked Canada, I liked Ryerson. I enjoyed the people, the festivals, the community. Everything and all of the above. It’s in the city so I can learn from a lot of professionals. Internships around the corner, also diversity, so for me it was
definitely a stand-out over the other schools. Ryerson has been a total community and
has been for us here the whole way. It’s a great place to meet friends. We’re best friends for life now. We have a
multicultural environment and its diversity is like its strength. You can meet people from all over the world that have different aspirations and you get
to know people that have similar goals. The fact that it’s integrated to the city – you don’t know where Toronto or the University starts and ends. It’s merged
into one and it just makes it a great experience.
