Humans of the SLC – Pt. 3

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

Monica & Nadia Buffa, Business Management Students:

“We live about an hour commute from here. On days that I have just one class, I spend the rest of the day studying here while I wait for her. I actually find that I study more easily here than I do at home. It’s just good to have a fun and motivating environment around you, whether you’re studying or you’re with friends.” -Monica Continue reading “Humans of the SLC – Pt. 3”

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

Maintenance Work – Gould Street Entrance

In response to ongoing leaks in the School of Performance and other lower-level spaces in the Student Learning Centre, a caulking replacement project to address the issue will begin Tuesday, October 10th. Due of the urgent and disruptive nature of the project, it will be conducted in phases and expected to be completed by November 27, 2017.

The phased approach minimizes the impact but extends the overall duration of the project. With your needs in mind, the SLC will remain open as usual throughout the project, minimizing the restrictions to accessibility by scheduling the most disruptive work on weekends.

This is how you will be impacted:

Pep, Pep, Pep Rally!

As I looked out over the sea of yellow residence t-shirts and anticipating faces, I found myself thinking back to my residence move in day – three years ago. I was just like all of the first years in front of me, at my very first Ryerson pep rally with my new floor family,  unsure of what the next few years had in store for me. Now, in my final year, I was standing in the middle of the crowd just as nervous, but this time, it was different. I was there to welcome the new students.
