Road From Ryerson: A New Pathway for Graduating Student Transition Support
by Rachel Barreca, Lesley D'Souza, Bailey Parnell

We invest a lot of resources into supporting the transitional needs of our incoming students, but pay less attention to the outgoing transition. A group of staff at Ryerson have started to change the way they support graduating students. Come learn about how we used transition theory to inform an innovative, collaborative pilot project (#RoadFromRyerson), and our vision for the future. Share your best practices and leave with many more ideas from our brainstorming session.

  27. 27. ANECDOTES “After writing my last exams I was not sure what I wanted to do. I felt disappointed that I didn’t have my career together, and confused as to how all the hard work I had put into my career thus far could have possibly left me feeling as though I was starting from scratch.” Danielle D’Costa “As an international student, I am expected to have a backup plan, a place to go if I don’t stay in Canada, career prospects abroad and such. The scariest thing for me now is that I don’t. If I were to leave Canada, I would head to Pakistan, my country of citizenship and the place my parents were born and raised. Although Pakistan is my country of citizenship, I never lived there.” Syed Mahmood “To be honest, I feel like I’ve been a rollercoaster of emotions ever since I wrote my last final exam of undergrad last month. I go through a cycle of feelings every day.. excited, happy, relieved, and more recently really anxious and nervous.” Sarah Joaquin
