Exploring Ryerson University // #RoadToRyerson Week 4


[Music] [ Music ]>>It’s about 6:00 p.m.
and today I’m setting out on a journey
to explore Ryerson. According to Google maps it
will take 30 minutes for me to get there from here. I have to take the
westbound train to [inaudible] station
then switch over to a southbound train
to Dundas station. As a commuter you never really
know what might happen along the way. There might be subway closures or unexpected train events
prompting an investigation. So it’s best to prepare
for the worse and leave way ahead of time. [ Music ] I [inaudible] it does take 30
minutes for me to get here. We have reached our destination. Before coming here I
checked out the virtual tour on the Ryerson website, and so
now I’m going to try and find as many places featured
as I can before the sun sets. First off, he Ted Rogers School of Management
building. It’s connected to the Eaton
Centre and isa steps away from the financial district. Ryerson is situated right
at the heart of downtown, so there’s so many
things to see and do, especially here at Yonge-Dundas square. The SLC has eight floors with
different themes as well as a wild range of study spaces. Gould Street is
a pedestrian only zone. While here you will find a
campus store, Jorgenson Hall, which is home of
the Faculty of Arts and several student services. The Ryerson Image
Centre, Lake Devo, Balzac’s coffee roasters,
and The Student cCmpus Centre where you can get discounted
TTC passes and more. In addition to having
lecture halls the George Vari Engineering and Computing Centre
has an environmental agreement. Eric Palin Hall is the home to the
School of Social Work. Pitman Hall is one of the three
residences on campus. Our final destination for today
is the Rogers Communication Centre, which houses Canada’s first university high definition television studio. Even though I live in Toronto
I would often go downtown. I haven’t really gotten a chance to explore the Ryerson
Campus Centre. Doing so today I would say
you really do get a completely different feeling
knowing I’ll be a student here this fall. [ Music ] Orientation week is next week. If you’re commuting, be sure to
check out Ryerson to the Core. Volunteers will be
welcoming incoming students at the following stations
on the map. See you next week
hopefully in person. [Music]
