This is for anybody thinking of going toQuite BrightArt & Design Department
This is for anybody thinking of going to Ryerson to study FASHION DESIGN or FASHION COMMUNICATIONS: DO NOT DO IT. Studying fashion at Ryerson was an absolute and total waste of time. It would have been far more valuable to have studied BUSINESS and simply applied that to a fashion company.

Graduates of the fashion program are chronically underemployed/unemployed.
I cannot get back the years that I spent studying fashion at Ryerson but if I could talk to myself at 18, I would have told myself to get a more useful education. It was a rough ride after school finished and many graduates now work in retail, which can be done without this expensive degree. It also really paints you into a corner as far as applying to master's degrees and getting into other fields.

I 100% DO NOT recommend the Ryerson School of Fashion. It was a huge waste of money and time that did nothing to help me form a career. Do yourself a favor and get a useful degree!

Question
There are a decent number of ok andQuite BrightComputer Science
There are a decent number of ok and good professors at Ryerson, but the terrible profs are so bad that I just can not bring myself to say one good thing about Ryerson. Avoid Mason, Mastoras and Panar like the plague (except you can't because they teach mandatory courses). Their level of incompetence and uncaring knows no limit.

Overall the Computer Science program here is a complete joke. If you have half a brain you can pass anything easily. 3/4ths of a brain and you can be on the Dean's list every year.

Expect to learn nothing of value and waste four years of your life rotting your brain.
Try to take a 16 month internship (preferably two 8 month internships back to back at different places). It will be of infinite more value than anything else here. If possible don't do it between 2nd and 3rd year, you will come back to the realization that you still have 2 more years of crap to go, which after doing real world work feels like an eternity.Also, Ryerson needs to get rid of the homeless people on campus. Disgusting.
