We understand that, after the celebrations of graduation are over, new alumni face a set of new and unique challenges - the prospects of the workforce, financial pressures, social changes, etc. And we understand that we can continue to support our recent alumni in various ways to help them through this transition. ThriveRU programming provides training and resources to Ryerson students and recent alumni to help develop capacities for thriving in a professional and personal context. Recent alumni can access workshops associated with resilience, well-being, coping with employment search, and other elements of leading a healthy lifestyle.

At the heart of ThriveRU is the understanding that 40% of our happiness is up to us, 50% is genetic, and 10% is at the hands of life circumstances. This means that you can take greater charge of your life satisfaction by simply changing what you do and think

Recent alumni can participate in ThriveRU programming through the ConnectRU portal, opens in new window.
