Ryerson reacts to A- score on sexual violence policy report

Ryerson reacts to A- score on sexual violence policy report

A- isn’t a perfect score, but it’s considered Canada’s best.

Last week, Our Turn, a student-led advocacy group assigned grades to Canadian schools based on how they each deal with sexual harassment. With a A-, Ryerson came out on top.

OPINION: Letter to My Ex-Professor(s)

I was stuck in the worst subway delay of my life, in a five-station closure that doubled my commute time to just over four hours.

But, where most students would have simply headed back home, I was more concerned with getting to this specific class. Anxiety was an understatement.

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.

Ryerson sports go vertical with new rock climbing club

Cameron Lawrence clings onto a wall by the tips of his fingers, nearly upside down. He crouches down and prepares to use his legs to explode upwards to grab a finger hold about a metre above his head.

With a grunt, he leaps into the air and slaps the handhold above him, but he is not quite able to grab onto it, and he crashes down on the padded floor. Standing up, he covers his hands in a helping of chalk to dry up the sweat on his fingers and tries again. Then, hits the ground again. And over and over again, more than a dozen times.

Rye bolsters eligibility checks for athletics

Ryerson Athletics is reviewing its grade monitoring process among student athletes after the men’s soccer team was penalized for academic ineligibility by the Ontario University Athletics and U Sports.

An unnamed player failed to meet academic requirements back in September, forcing the team to forfeit its first six games. Had the wins stood, the team would have been in fourth place overall in the country.

Mental health services need more diversity

Ryerson’s Health and Wellness Centre has been a vital resource for students battling mental health issues, but its lack of diversity has many students of colour feeling left behind.

The hued racial composition on campus is hard to miss. Walk along Gould Street on a busy afternoon and you’ll see a true reflection of Toronto’s fast-growing ethno-cultural community, which now makes up almost half of the city’s population.

OPINION: Letter to My Ex-Professor(s)

In my last semester of third year, I took a class that had one major project, a midterm and an exam. The class seemed fairly easy, but the major project was an assignment to be done in pairs.

Each pair had to get a topic approved and write an in-depth report. The project was assigned during the second week of the semester and was due  before the final exam. It counted for 40 per cent of my grade. Up until then, I had no complaints about the professor. He seemed knowledgeable, fair and even funny at times. He approved our topic and some of the sources we were planning to use.

Striking college faculty picket at Ryerson

While most Ryerson students returned to the classroom this week, several students and faculty from the collaborative nursing program between Ryerson, George Brown and Centennial College have had their classes halted as a result of the Ontario college faculty strike.

After failing to reach an agreement between the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) and the College Employer Council (CEC) by the 12:01 a.m deadline Monday, about 12,000 faculty at Ontario’s 24 colleges went on strike in order to advocate for increased job security for part-time workers and greater academic freedom, among other issues.

The tiny Lego bricks that coloured most people’s childhoods are designed to make virtually anything. In the case of a former School of Image Arts student, they made his career.                  

Dylan Woodley’s game is stop-motion animation: making seamless movement out of Lego bricks one frame at a time.

The study is called Education at a Glance 2017 and it was conducted by the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) last September. The OECD is an intergovernmental organization made up of 35 member countries including Canada.

Ryerson contract lecturers doubtful of changes to Bill 148

Colman Hogan has been a contract lecturer at Ryerson University for over 20 years but his salary is almost a third of a full-time staffer.

His case is emblematic of an issue that new provincial legislation is trying to solve: employees being paid less and going without benefits because of their contract status. But not all professors are convinced that the bill goes far enough.

A poster for the Canadian chapter of the white supremacist group Generation Identity appeared on Ryerson campus Monday morning – only to be torn down shortly after. The poster was on a board outside the Student Campus Centre. It was taken down by the Ryerson Students’ Union (RSU) vice-president of equity, Camryn Harlick, late Monday morning.

The Canadian branch of Generation Identity made news last month when its recruitment material began popping up on multiple university campuses.

Ryerson film alumna explores shadeism within the black community

Toronto-based documentary filmmaker Sara Yacobi-Harris tackled the perspectives and narratives of multi-ethnic Jewish identity in her 2016 film Who Is a Jew?. However, her deep interest in unravelling identity hasn’t stopped growing just yet, as the filmmaker takes on a new film about shadeism, entitled Dancing Through Shades.

“The film tackles the taboo subject of Shadeism by exploring the experiences of light skin individuals versus dark-skinned individuals, but also breaking down the construction of beauty and privilege that is perpetuated through shadeism and colourism” Yacobi-Harris said.

OPINION: Breastfeeding spaces at Ryerson

How hard is it to find a place to breastfeed at Ryerson? Surprisingly, pretty hard. Even getting a straight answer from faculty and staff was nearly impossible. And some campus staff don’t know that breastfeeding spaces exist.

After a day of trying to find breastfeeding spaces for student-parents, both designated and not, I found that spaces that were supposed to be available weren’t and I’d have to wait hours for the others.

Seven years ago, Aaron Labbé was unable to go outside without being stricken with intense anxiety. He said he could not escape from an overwhelming sense of despair at how badly people treated each other. His condition led to a “major nervous breakdown resulting in heart arrhythmia,” he said. Now, along with other things he needs to do to maintain peace of mind, he meditates.

Labbé was living in Buffalo at the time he sought medical help. He had a long list of diagnoses, like borderline personality disorder, bipolar 1 disorder, panic anxiety disorder and substance abuse. He was prescribed 15 different medications until one was found to be effective.
