The Ryerson School of Journalism welcomed 143 undergraduate first-year students into the Bachelor of Journalism program on August 27. They had a full day of orientation activities to get to know the school.

Their journalism education began right at the start of the day with an assignment to interview faculty and staff which they then posted to Twitter with the hashtag #RSJnow. Here were some of their tweets:


During the day, the students heard from Lisa Taylor, Undergraduate Program Director, Janice Neil, Chair and a panel of five second year students who shared their first-year experiences and tips.

The hashtag became a trending topic on Twitter as upper-year students, faculty and alumni gave advice to the incoming class.

On Wednesday August 28, the RSJ also welcomed 24 Masters students to the graduate program.
