#RoadToRyerson is Back! Be a 2015 Blogger!

We want you to tell your story!


We’re looking for 6-9 students to share their ‘Road to Ryerson’ in a series of blogs and social media posts on RU Student Life. Preparing and transitioning to university is one of the bigger life moments. We want to see what this transition looks like for you.

Maybe you’re moving here from across the world, commuting from Mississauga or have lived in Toronto all your life. Maybe you were valedictorian, or never really liked school at all. Maybe you’re 17, maybe you’re 37. Are you an engineering student? Politics? New Media? It doesn’t matter. We all have a story. We want to hear yours.

Last year’s #RoadToRyerson Campaign was a huge success! See the campaign roundup here and check out the students’ stories below.

We’d like at least 1 blog post per week with more than one component, such as:

  • Text
  • Video (V-Logs, Instagram video, YouTube, Vine, etc.)
  • Pictures (Instagram pics, DSLR, etc)
  • Social (Tweets, Facebook Posts, etc.)
  • Audio (Music, Clips, etc)

We also want you to post on your many social media accounts using the #RoadToRyerson hashtag.


One of the qualities that makes Ryerson special is the diversity in people we attract here. Everyone has their own unique story and perspective. We all get here different ways, but the important thing is that we all get here. We want to give a number of different incoming students the chance to tell those stories of getting here and going through the same transition so many other students are at the same time.

What Next?

If you think you’d be interested in being one of these students, send us a 30s video telling us why you’re excited to come to Ryerson. That’s it!

We don’t mind how:

  • If you can fit it under 15s, you can tag us in an Instagram video @RUStudentLife and hashtag #RoadToRyerson

If, for any reason, you require other forms of auditioning, such as blogs, essays or audio, please reach out to rustudentlife@gmail.com.
