Where did the summer go?

First of all, a big thank you to everyone who came out on September 1st to take part in the 2009 Faculty of Arts Orientation, Charting Your Course. The event was a big success and we hope you all had as much fun as we did. A special thank you to our upper year Arts students who volunteered to be Orientation Leaders; without you none of it would have been possible.

Next, the moment you've all been waiting for: it's time to announce the winning cheer. The polls are closed, the votes are in and in a landslide result: we've got your winner. Congratulations to the winning group! So without further ado, here's the Faculty of Arts ULTIMATE Cheer (learn it, live it, love it!):

Leader: Arts…Arts…We’re all about the smarts
Everyone: Arts…Arts…We’re all about the smarts

Leader: We’re really really witty (pause) –sharp like darts
Everyone: We’re really really witty (pause) – sharp like darts

Everyone: Arts…Arts…We’re all about the smarts X2

Leader: Sooo many books we carry them in carts Everyone: Sooo many books we carry them in carts

Everyone: Arts…Arts…We’re all about the smarts X3

I hope some of you were able to make it out on Wednesday for Ryerson's Annual Guinness World Record Attempt, where nearly 800 Ryerson students banded together in an effort to beat the record for largest air guitar session. We all got a sweet pair of complimentary sunglasses courtesy of the O-Team to wear while rocking out with our air guitars. If you missed it, check out this segment from Global TV, featuring my Student Life Team co-worker and our fellow Faculty of Arts student, Andrew Bisnauth: http://www.globalontario.com/video/index.htmlreleasePID=90N6Or2J0zcYzdU4LUsRG__zWwsNIs4t (who also appears on this awesome sign, shown on the left...Faculty of Arts students are so cool!)

I can't believe O-Week is already drawing to a close. As I type this the O-Team, Ryerson Orientation Crew and our first year students are having fun in the sun at Beach Day to conclude the 2009 Orientation with a bang. We've still got the long weekend ahead of us before it's back to the lecture halls and endless piles of readings, so grab some friends and make the most of this warm weather.

I'll be returning as your friendly Faculty of Arts student life blogger for the 2009-2010 school year, so as always if you'd like to contribute to the blog or think there's something I should be covering leave a comment or send an e-mail to facescom@arts.ryerson.ca.

See you when classes start!
