Scope and content
Bound and loose copies of the Ryersonian newspapers from 1948 until 2020. Access copies available for consultation in the Archives and Special Collections reading room.
As of Winter 2020 the Ryersonian newspaper went to an online format only because of the Covid 19 pandemic. It is yet to be determined if they will continue to put out a hardcopy newspaper.
In May of 2021 a renaming committee recommended that the names of both the Ryersonian and the Ryerson Review of Journalism should be changed. The School Council unanimously approved these motions. In July, the School reached out to community members with a renaming form, encouraging them to submit their ideas for new names. In September 2021 the name was changed on "On the Record".
These changes are in line with the University's announcement of its intention to change the name of the University in time for the 2022-2023 school year. This change was one of 22 recommendations put forward by the Standing Strong Taskforce whose mandate was to to develop principles to guide commemoration at the university and to respond to the history and legacy of Egerton Ryerson within the context of the university’s values.
