‘Everybody needs a home’: Community members say Ryerson can help solve homelessness

Students walk around piles of cardboard boxes, blankets and a tent on the sidewalk on their way to the subway. Others, leaving the Tim Hortons on Victoria Street avoid eye contact as they mumble and nod thanks to Jason Serroul for holding the door.

The occasional passerby hands Serroul some quarters. Sometimes it’s a coffee. Sometimes a takeout container with leftover food.

What’s stalling Go Transit Wi-Fi?

In a world becoming so dependent on wireless internet for news and updates, the demand for Wi-Fi in more public spaces while commuting has risen.

In Canada, VIA Rail trains have Wi-Fi for business or economy classes and long-distance travels. But regional trains, more specifically Ontario GO trains, don’t have Wi-Fi, despite several of their trains travelling the same distance as some VIA Rail routes.

Textile waste at Ryerson is so last season

In just one year, Canada produces enough textile waste to create a mountain three times the size of Toronto’s Rogers Centre.

Ryerson’s fashion design program creates a small part of that mountain, due to the lack of fabric recycling in labs on campus.

Student film confronts relationship sex abuse

Meet Glass Ceiling Productions, a group of five young women in their fourth year of Ryerson’s RTA School of Media releasing a film that is normalizing the conversation of sexual assault, abuse and consent.

Their coming-of-age film, The Remnants of Eden, is about sexual consent in a relationship and speaks about a traumatic event that happens to the main character, Eden Rosen.

Enrolment on the rise but space in short supply

A student’s shoulders dropped slightly when he entered room 239 in Ryerson’s Kerr Hall South. Scanning from left to right over the frame of his glasses, he looked for a proper seat, but his search came up short. His midterm was about to begin.

He resorted to a lone seat in the path of the doorway. It was clearly brought in separately and was far too small for a comfortable fit, but at least it had a desk attachment.
