5 Reasons why you should attend your Enrolment Workshop by Kristin Walcott-Dass
September is almost here and it is almost time to decide on the courses you will be taking during your first year! Nervous? Don't be! The Faculty of Arts is here to help you get familiar with Ryerson and your program. To give you a head start on preparing for September, the faculty is holding Enrolment Workshops on August 7 & 10 to help you pick courses, get familiar with the RAMSS system, and get the opportunity to see Ryerson up close and personal. Still not convinced you should attend your workshop? Here are 5 reasons why we think you should attend your Enrolment Workshop:
1. You will get to meet new incoming students
The Enrolment Workshops are the perfect time to meet new students who are coming to Ryerson. While transitioning into university (or returning to university) may be intimidating, just remember: you are not alone! The workshops will give you the opportunity to make new friends and find out who is in your program. These students may also be the ones who you will hang out with at Orientation!
2. You will meet upper year students and some of your future professors
You will not only get to meet new students, but you will also get the chance to meet upper year students. Our awesome Arts Ambassadors will be at the workshops to help you choose classes, give you some valuable advice, and inform you about the true Ryerson experience. Have any specific questions that you were not sure could be answered? Make sure to ask one of our Arts Ambassadors.
Additionally, your Program Administrator (PA), Undergraduate Program Director (UPD), and some of your future professors will be at the workshops, so don't forget to say hi!
3. We have a information session... for your parents!
Got any parents/guardians who are nervous about this transition? Well, we have the perfect information session. If your parents/guardians choose to attend your workshop, there will be a special presentation just for them. This presentation will inform them how to support you when you start attending Ryerson. Facilitated by our Career Counsellor, Sonny Wong, your parents/guardians will be provided with all the tricks and tips to help you (and themselves) with this new experience.
4. See what Ryerson has to offer
Want to get involved? Thinking you might need some extra assistance during the school year? Or maybe you are just curious about Ryerson's student groups and services. At the workshops, there will be a Student Service Fair to let you know what's going on at Ryerson.
Not only will there be a fair, but executives and representatives of Arts Course Unions will also be in attendance. If you want to get involved on campus, make sure to let your Course Union members know!
5. Explore Ryerson and the community
Lastly, when you finish your workshop, make sure to walk around Ryerson to get yourself familiar with the campus. You can also get a campus tour by the Undergraduate Admissions team after you finish your workshop. Just remember to register here for your tour.
