When Ryerson students fill out surveys to evaluate their instructors each semester, female faculty are often subject to a disproportionate amount of racist and sexist criticism.
A group of seven Ryerson professors won a bid to update Frank Lloyd Wright’s original drawings for the Banff National Park Pavilion.
Yew-Thong Leong, an architectural science associate professor, is one of seven Ryerson faculty members chosen to work on the multimillion dollar project.
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.
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.
