It has become a fall tradition around the Ryerson School of Journalism that orientation week becomes a trending topic on Twitter.

The school welcomed some 130 new first year students into the Bachelor of Journalism on Aug. 30, and the enthusiasm showed that day continued into the program’s frosh days throughout the rest of the week.

Below is a photo gallery of the frosh events and some advice upper-year students, faculty and school alumni gave via social media to the school’s class of 2020.


Students used the hashtag #rsjorientation during an orientation event panel. The panel featured members of the Journalism course union, who gave advice to the incoming class.

The hashtag’s use wasn’t limited to the students, however. Some working journalists got involved in the Twittersphere action to give their advice to young journalists.
