“Ryerson gave me the skills to create tangible change in the city we live in, challenged me to see systemic issues, and gave me opportunities to explore my interests through meaningful projects that make a real difference. The massive alumni network, industry partnerships, student and faculty support make this a community that is far-reaching and absolutely invaluable.”
