How can I stay in touch?

How can students get involved?

CJRU is a special radio station because it is licensed as a campus and community broadcaster. We are partly funded by a generous levy from the students of Ryerson University. There are a number of ways for students to get involved at their campus station.

  • Internships: complete your course internship at our station. Campus community stations are great spaces to learn and try things out. We work with all interns to create a work plan that focuses on developing skills and experiences based around the interns interests and goals. CJRU commits some funds each year to pay honorariums.
  • Hosting and Producing: Create and develop your own programming to brighten up your portfolio, pursue a passion or learn new technical skills. Campus radio is a fun way to network on and off campus! CJRU staff love to promote student work to the wider community.
  • Collective Programming: We know students have busy schedules, but our station accepts volunteer productions large or small! We offer a number of opportunities to help make radio as part of a team. We have both spoken word and music collectives that are always looking for new team members.
  • Course Work Spotlights: We are always interested in listening to the work you’ve created in class and airing work that fits in our mandate. We’re also interested in developing programming around coursework so if you’re a professor, be in touch. We provide studio access and equipment to students who are producing for CJRU at Ryerson- including all faculties full or part time!
