As Orientation and the start of school come close, we’re sharing the stories

of real first-year students heading to Ryerson.

Make sure you’re also up to date with all things Orientation Week! On August 26th to 30th, you’ll have a chance to

meet other first-years who are in the same boat as you. Check out full schedules and more info:


We invited first-years to meet for the first time and talk about their transition to university.


Let’s get together and figure out what this university thing is all about.


We’re asking first-years to submit work that they think share their stories. From passion projects created in high school or pieces you used in

your portfolio and will never use again, we’re featuring them all!

Have something you want to share? Submissions are open until Orientation Week! Share your work today.
