"As a first year student, my experience with the Global Campus Studio was the perfect introduction to Ryerson’s school community. I was able to develop international collaboration skills, and design a fully functional board game on topic of food scarcity. I appreciate my newfound global perspective that continues to inform my creative projects." - Nico
