Celebrate where it all started!

Alumni having fun at Alumni Weekend

Alumni Weekend is taking place on May 3 and 4 this year with many new activities.


Ryerson may be the place where you discovered your lifelong passion, built your professional network, started your business, made friendships that stood the test of time or even met the love of your life. On May 3 & 4, come back to campus for Alumni Weekend and celebrate where it all started.


Here are just a few of the new things to look out for this year:


1. It’s in the spring

Visit all your favourite spots and hideaways while campus is in full bloom!


2. We’ve expanded to two days!

With more programming than ever before, we’ve expanded Alumni Weekend to two days. Event highlights include the President’s Community Lunch on Friday where alumni, students, faculty and staff can mix and mingle, a Talk and Taste with Beau’s Beer and a 25th Anniversary Happy Hour for grads of the class of 1994.


3. Bring the family

With summer camp activities, a virtual reality workshop and a chocolate making workshop, Alumni Weekend is fun for the whole family. We can’t wait to meet your future Ryersonians.


4. More to see

In addition to our regular campus tours, we have expanded our programs to include tours of our Zones — Ryerson’s trademark startup ecosystem where students, alumni and community members come together to create the companies of tomorrow. The Ryerson Image Centre will be open, so you can see the work of Moyra Davey, a celebrated photographer and winner of the 2018 Scotiabank Photography Award.


5. Intersections

Our new speaker series, Intersections: Mind and Action on the Road, comes to campus for the first time on Alumni Weekend. Professor Mark. V. Campbell will discuss Toronto’s hip-hop legacy. Discover how college radio helped shape the hip-hop landscape and learn more about the local pioneers of
the genre.
