#RUSCARED Halloween Costume Contest WINNERS 2016

Halloween 2016 may be over, but we haven’t forgotten about the incredible costumes we saw back in October! When it came to being scary, funny and creative both individually and in couples and groups, Ryerson did not disappoint this year.

Many students entered our annual #RUScared costume contest, and now the votes are in. From Fitbits, USBs, dinners at Scaddabush and movie passes to portable charges, OneCards and free tea, the best of the best will receive a selection of super cool prizes. Huge thanks to our sponsors Sir Corp, DAVIDsTEA, OneCard and Coca Cola!
