VIDEO: The Commuter Complex – Episode One: St. James Town

After living near the intersection of Richmond and Sherbourne streets for most of last year, third-year chemical engineering student Richard Tek moved into the heart of St. James Town a little over a month ago.

Campus Clubs: Dance Pak’s decade of success

Like the line of toy primates that took its name from the idiom, “More fun than a barrel of monkeys,” the improvisational comedy team creates a good time from almost nothing. They start with suggestions from the audience: a place, a person or an occupation. Within […]

Campus Clubs: Dragon boat, a club that keeps Rams alumni around

If you’re looking for something to do outside of class, hitting the Mattamy Athletic Centre or going for drinks at the Ram in the Rye may seem like the only options. But that’s simply not so! Ryerson is home to many athletic, artistic and quirky clubs where lasting friendships flourish. From the well-established dragon boat club to the recently revamped […]
