I would like to know that as well. I´m planning to go to Ryerson´s business school and I´m from Vancouver..........I´m doubting myself after reading some reviews

do not go to ryerson. toronto is a great city but if you want to have an all round university experience but you want to be close to city life, go to U of T, York or to McMaster. They are all better and have alot of students from all over the world.

I go to Mac (McMaster) and it is a good university and has alot to do and is only like 45 mins from Toronto.

Anyway, just trust me on Ryerson....they campus looks like a high school and the students act like high schoolers too. It is almost a large high school and that´s what the other university students in Toronto see it. The concept of RyeHigh is fully understood and is almost an excuse to laugh when talking about most programs at Ryerson.

One upside, it is downtown Toronto so the lack of campus life and high student alienation is on level with alot of things to see and do in the city.

Yes, as the mac guy said, Reyrson is in the mid of downtown so you would not experince a university life.

Ryerson is Ryerson, not UofT or York. It has a particular mission and academic ethos - ie. more practical/vocationally orientated, plus greater admissions accessibility - which differentiates it from the other Toronto universities (just as York is different from UofT). It has several excellent programs, all of which compare very favourably with the best in the country. My advice would be to ignore the vacuous generalities and platitudes voiced by some previous commentators and investigate Ryerson for yourself. Go directly to the source, speak to a few students and faculty. What counts is whether you´ll be happy there and only you can be the judge of that.

dumb VS dumber? (in reply to: ryerson ?????)
Well said! I wouldn´t pay too much attention to the incoherent ranting of Duneka from McMaster and some of the others. You lot can barely make yourselves understood in the english language and you want to give advice to others? Boy, living in Hamilton must really suck big time!

Hey,
If you still want info on Ryerson-I´m in the journalism program (4 year) there; it´s one of the top 2 (probably #1) journalism schools in Canada and one of the best in North America-when people criticize Ryerson I´m not sure they know that Ryerson has some of the best rated programs in Canada-Ryerson is great for specific things. For example, the journalism school, theatre and film programs, ITM, fashion and film are noted as the best in the country. For business...I knew people last year who were in business there and like it, it´s more hands-on.
But with business-why not just go to U of T? (Unless you want more hands on curriculum).It´s true there´s not a lot of school spirit or campus at Ryerson-people aren´t really there for that stuff. So it just depends on the program you´re in. Don´t take Maclean´s ratings all that seriously-Ryerson´s rep depends on each specific program.

Ryerson rocks (in reply to: ryerson ?????)
I would say, Ryerson has built a reputation of giving practical education apart from theory, which makes it different from the other Universities. There is very good community life. And if it is in downtown toronto, trust me it is a good thing!

Man, if you want to be a professor or scientist then go for UofT or Waterloo, but if you want to build your career in the Croporate environment Ryerson is the best choice,

It is more practical oriented and it has more graduate employment rate than other universities since its more fouced on corporate Canada

and there ITM program is simply the best in Canada --- there is no doubt about it !!! (92% employement rate !!)

I thing Ryerson has one of the best Journalism and IT Program (ITM) in North America.
I agree with Dan, if you want to be a scholer and want to publish journals, go to UofT, but if you want a corporate career, Ryerson is the best option.

The campus of Ryerson sucks though as it is in the middle of downtown, however, its a good location to build corporate relation.
