Scope and content

The file contains the directories and handbooks issued by the Ryerson student union in any of its incarnations -

  • Students' Administrative Council (SAC)
  • Students’ Union of Ryerson Polytechnical Institute (SURPI)
  • Ryerson Students’ Union (RSU)
  • Ryerson Students’ Administrative Council (RYESAC)
  • Ryerson Students’ Union (RSU)

The earliest issues were simply student directories containing student and staff telephone numbers and home addresses.
The format changed many times over the course of the years. Personal information was eliminated and the directory became more of a guide to familarize first year students with the services and activities offered by both the Student Union and the University.
