20 Ryerson Photo Ideas For Your Instagram Feed

After four years on campus walking pass the same buildings and trudging through the same hallways, it's easy to forget how beautiful and architecturally-inspiring Ryerson is. Every inch of Ryerson is bursting with photo opportunities that will have your friends and followers go ga-ga about. By Jessica Huynh, Storyteller for RU Student Life

1. The Maple Leaf Gardens might be a little out of the way, but the walk is worth it just to get a photo of the red carpet lights and the 'Ryerson University' marquee.

2. The sign looks just as cool (if not cooler) at night.

5. You could literally just take photos of flowers on campus and NEVER run out of great shots.

"Sorry that I'm late. I was busy taking photos of flowers...again."

6. And it might take us a little longer to find our Kerr Hall classes, but the antique classroom decor makes the confusion worthwhile.

Crack open those windows for the photo, won't you?

7. We can't forget about the majestic monument that is the Student Learning Centre (SLC).

"Yup, that's where I study," you brag to all your friends back home.

8. You can also tease the building so that the photo goes with your Instagram ~aesthetic~.

It's called minimalism, duh.

9. The eyeful-pattern continues inside.

I could stare at this ceiling all day.

10. Not to mention the 5th, 6th, and 8th floor of the SLC has SO MUCH natural light.

Don't mind me while I take a month's worth of selfies here.

11. It's perfect for all you Instagrammers with an 'all-white' feed.

I know how much you like using the whitening tool in your photo editing app.

12. Our campus is so picturesque, even our stairwells make for an interesting photo.

It's called ART. Look it up.

14. Now, we're not saying you should become a rooftop photographer...

We're merely saying that with views like this, we can understand why more and more people are getting into rooftop photography.

15. The other option is to get a drone...

But that would probably require a permit.

16. Lake Devo and the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC) is also an oasis of photo possibilities.

There's always something happening on Lake Devo.

17. Dare I say it? At night, the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC) makes for a better photo than the Toronto sign in Nathan Phillips Square.

I might be a little bias as a Ryerson student.

18. What's a Ryerson photo without our school's colours included? The Mattamy Athletic Centre's (MAC) is your go-to spot to rep your Ryerson pride.

19. There's also a less chaotic balance of Ryerson colours in the MAC's locker rooms (for those of you with a more minimalist feed).

Just make sure nobody is in the locker room when you take photos here.
