Ryerson Athletics is in the process of defining what it means to be a Ryerson Ram, or in other words, creating an attitude around the brand that every Ryerson student can identify with and be proud to be part of. This attitude we’re looking for revolves around certain words; words like bold, fearless, inclusive, innovative, daring and courageous, just to name a few.  Ultimately, when people hear Ryerson Rams we want them to think- difference makers.
