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.
“This contemporary, signature building creates a strong urban gateway to Ryerson University, marking the campus’ presence in the heart of downtown Toronto. Its south-facing plaza holds the corner, yet is also inviting: a geometric-tiled canopy provides a sheltering ceiling in “Ryerson blue,” while broad, sunny steps are well-used by students and passers-by. The invitation up and into the building is continued throughout the project. By programming the building as public, and not as a building exclusive to the Ryerson community, the school has made a powerful statement about its location on Yonge Street and how it can contribute to the public realm”
