  1. Hi! I am interested in a volunteer position. I’m in second-year Sport Media. I know times are weird right now but I would love to create some graphics and write some articles over the summer and possibly also shoot photo/video at sporting events once school starts in the fall! I’m really interested in a future career in graphic design, social media or video editing/producing. I can definitely send over samples of my work if you’re interested.

    1. Hi Erika,

      Thanks for your interest. Our sports editor will be in touch with you.

  2. Hello! I hope all is well, I am very interested in a volunteer position. I am going into my second year in Photography Studies, and I would love the opportunity to volunteer with taking photos of sport events and things going on around Ryerson once everything goes back to normal as well as if there is anything I can do during the summer months. I think this is a wonderful opportunity, to get involved in the Ryerson community as well as experience, expanding my eye and documantion skills. I think this is such a wonderful team and I would love to work alongside. I am very passionate in pursuing Photography in the future and I think this is an amazing opportunity. I would be more then happy to send over some of my work if you are interested, thank you for your time.

    1. Hi Peyton — thanks so much for your interest. I’ve passed along your message to the photo team, as well as our sports editor. They’ll reach out to you shortly!
