On November 15th, 2012, Student Housing Services held an appreciation reception for Residence Heroes and Student staff at the Mattamy Athletic Centre! It was a great success and gave us all an opportunity to formally recognize the incredible community we have here in residence.

A message from the Graduate Advisor -Leadership:
"The residence hero program is a program that recognizes students for their day-to-day contributions to the residence community. Students and staff are encouraged to nominate their students and peers for big acts of kindness and the little things that often go unnoticed. Whether it is helping a friend study, helping to plan an event, consoling a friend when their upset or just being an active member of our community – RezHeros are helping to build the residence community. Even though they may think what they do is unimportant – I’m here to tell them that it is. Holding the title of a Ryerson residence hero means that at some point in time they have contributed something positive to someone else’s residence experience. Even if it was just one person, that person will always remember them as someone who added a positive memory to their life. This year the program has been very successful, with over 90 nominations, and that number is reflective of how strong our community really is. Kindness and appreciation is contagious – and in Ryerson Rez, it’s spreading like wildfire! As is said in the RezHero congratulatory letters, residence isn’t just about a place to sleep and eat. It’s about building a community, creating memories and the beginning of life long friendships.
I want to sincerely thank you all for your continued positivity and invaluable contributions to our community. Thank you for being residence heroes – we salute you!"
