Hard Rock Party!

Hello again everyone,

I know I've told you about this before, but I wanted to remind you so that you don't miss out!

The Hard Rock Cafe Party is TONIGHT!

The doors open at 6pm and we will keep the party going until 2am!

Word of the event has been spreading throughout the campus to all faculties. Info is up on Facebook, Twitter, posters around the campus. I've even heard people just getting texts from their friends about this event, so it promises to be a good time.

There is a little bonus for the first 60 people to get there too!

There will be areas where you can just sit with friends and grab a bite to eat.

There will also be a dance floor and DJ so you can dance the night away!

Wristbands will be in effect which allows for students of all ages to attend!

It's going to be awesome!

I hope to see you all there! If you're there, come and say hi!

Back to the Grind

Hello everyone,
Oh, How i've missed you!
The past few weeks have been hectic with the wind down from Orientation.

Orientation = SUCCESS by the way...

I hope everyone had a great time at their academic orientation day as well as throughout the week. Ryerson did succeed in breaking a world record, so Hurray Ryerson! :)
The Parade and Picnic was another great event. Thanks to the RSU for that one! Dragonette was amazing!

But after all the hussle and bussle, it is time to get back to work. School is back everyone and that means readings and essays and studying! But we don't want you to think that that is the only thing that University has to offer.

We've got clubs and events and all sorts of great things you can get involved in (including this blog if you like). All you've got to do is keep your eyes open for opportunities.

The first big event will be held THIS THURSDAY (Sept. 22nd) at the Hard Rock Cafe.
The Faculty of Arts Course Unions (all of them) are hosting a WELCOME BACK BASH!!!
It's going to be awesome!
If you would like to go, just show up. It's that easy. They have rented out the top floor lounge and dance floor and there will be a special menu for Ryerson Students. It's an all ages event AND students from ALL faculties can attend!
Tell all your friends about it and come out for an awesome night!
The doors open at 6:00pm and the event ends at 2:00am.

I hope to see you there!
Check the event out on Facebook too...
