Having just passed the SLC’s third year anniversary, let’s take a look at what students and staff have to say about the heart of Ryerson’s campus! 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.
Since its opening, the Student Learning Centre has become a well-known place for encouraging student participation and enhancing their overall experience at Ryerson. Last year, the SLC introduced a new initiative inspired by these ideals called the SLC SEAL Team Student Engagement and Leadership (SEAL) Award. This award encourages students to be involved in the Ryerson community and to help enhance students’ experiences.
One undergraduate and one graduate winner will be chosen to receive the award and the $1000 grant that accompanies it.
Student consultations have been a priority from the start of this project. Everything from space function and design to furniture selection. The Student Learning Centre’s (SLC) many unique characteristics were influenced by students who came before you.
What is the SLC?
Ryerson is transforming the corner of Yonge and Gould with a stunning building that is dedicated to you: the Student Learning Centre (SLC).
As the building rapidly approaches the final construction stages, everyone on campus (and in the city) eagerly anticipates its opening in early 2015.
More than 155,000 square feet of new space over eight floors will provide enough room for approximately 2,300 students to study, collaborate, and share ideas.
Student consultations have been a priority from the start of this project. Everything from space function and design to furniture selection. The SLC will become a physical manifestation of Ryerson’s spirit and a world-class destination for generations of students to come. Let’s take a tour and imagine yourself there.
