20 Tell-Tale Signs You Are Definitely A Ryerson Student

Every university rubs off on their students and has their tell-tale signs that you DEFINITELY went there. Here are a few signs that you're forever a Ryerson Ram:

1. You have had an angry conversation about the botched Gould Street paint job.

And an even angrier one when you found out how much it cost.

2.  Receiving sketchy security warning emails every three hours no longer phases you.

Do you ever get so stressed you just bite someone's poncho? Same.

3. No matter what year you're in you still can't navigate through Kerr Hall.

There is no such thing as being on time to a first-week class in Kerr Hall.

4. You have a silent panic attack every time you see a"Because I am a Girl" street campaigner.

Pretend you're texting, pretend you're texting pretend you're texting.

5. You don't flinch when this man yells "Believe!"

And you laugh at the newbies who get scared.

6. Your biggest pet peeve is people walking slow.

Because you have places to go and things to do.

7. The Eaton Centre being so close by is the worst thing to ever happen to your wallet.

When are opt-out cheques coming out again? Oh they don't do cheques anymore? #Cool

8.  You still can't find study space, even with the new SLC.

The only thing that has changed since the SLC is needing retina display to see your laptop screen and watching students dry hump on beanbags at the "beach."

9. You have fallen asleep in an AMC lecture.

Dim lighting + comfy theatre seats + boring lecture = recipe for disaster.

 10.  You know that this isn't just any normal Harvey's.

It's hooker Harvey's.

11. You know that this is a rare sight to behold.

Ryerson is either trying to keep their electric bill low or their students' BMIs low...we may never know.

12. You never go to house parties because Ryerson is a commuter school without fraternities.

Instead, you go to the club.

13. Having to rely on Tinder to meet someone because you don't go to house parties.

14. You never understood how Ryerson managed to pick the worst days for registration.

"Class registration will take place on Christmas morning and December 31 at 11:59 p.m."

15. You searched forever for the RAC before you realized it was under the ground.

"It's supposed to be right here but this the quad?"

16. You have gone to school when every other university had a snow day.

Ryerson turns down for nothing.

17. You have waited in line at the Tim Hortons in Kerr Hall for over 20 minutes.

Because you NEEDED it.

 18. You have seen the legendary one-legged pigeon.

He has survived WWII and Gould Street at 3 p.m.

 19. You used to brag to everyone that Deadmau5 lived right beside your campus.

And you always wanted to spot him in the Purrari.

20.  Your overall opinion of Ryerson depends on whether or not you got a ticket to the 2015 parade and concert.

The rapper dropped the 21-track project on September 3 and Drake made no effort to hide his Canadian-ness for this one, naming one of his songs after his Toronto neighbourhood and even namedropping the PM in the lyrics.
