Humans of the SLC – Pt. 2

Humans of the SLC aims to showcase users’ experiences within the building and reflect on what exactly makes a place feel like home. This is a project created by students for students. This is your story and your SLC.

Zoe Arseneau, 3rd Year Creative Industries Student, SLC Creative Team Graphic Designer:

“I love that I feel valued here. Before being a graphic designer, I used to work as an SLC Specialist and through that I met some employers who were just incredibly caring. They were able to see the potential in my creativity and allowed me to pursue a job here that’s a little more fitting to who I am.”

Thankful for the SLC

In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving my mind had often been preoccupied with thoughts of all the things I am grateful for. One of the things I am most thankful for this year is the Student Learning Centre (SLC), as a student I am proud to study in the 21st Century Library that the SLC and Ryerson University Library and Archives (RULA) create together. As a Specialist and member of the Creative Team, I am thankful for the opportunities I have been presented. While thinking about this, I decided to sit down with other community members and learn why they are thankful for the SLC.


 

“I’m thankful that the SLC gives me a variety of places to study and hangout because it gives me a choice of what to do while I’m in between classes.” Alex, Student Specialist, 4th year Philosophy major

We’re also going back into “school mode.” To me, the beginning of a new school year means a fresh start – reunions with our peers, making new friends and heading back to class. I love it, but I know that it’s not everyone’s favourite time of year. Take it from me and enjoy a smooth back to school transition by following three of my personal tips

1. Create a schedule

Student walking in an SLC hallwayIn order to feel organized and prepared for school to start once again, setting up a schedule for yourself is one of the easiest things you can do. Not only will you be able to block in the times when you have class, but you’ll be able to set aside much needed study time. Book a Collaborative & Group Work Room (CGWR) or use the open study space at the SLC to get back into the groove of things.
