Ryerson to the Core is one of the ways we try to meet you where you’re at: we’ll have upper year students and Ryerson community members welcoming you before you even get to campus.
As a commuter, look for folks wearing Ryerson gear at various TTC/GO and major intersections – whether you need directions, someone to join you on your ride, or just a friendly face to begin your day, Ryerson to the Core will get you here.
Throughout Orientation Week from Monday August 27th-Friday August 31st we will have volunteers at the following TTC Stations and Major Intersections to provide a warm, enthusiastic welcome and provide any directions or information needed:
Yonge St. and Dundas St.
Yonge St. and Gerrard St.
Yonge St. and Gould St.
When you arrive on campus, we look forward to welcoming you at our Orientation Welcome Centre, located on the corner of Victoria and Gould Streets!
