Trent University to Host Spring Open House on April 5


Renowned Space Scientist and Trent Chancellor Dr. Roberta Bondar to Welcome Prospective Students

March 24, 2008, Peterborough

Prospective students and their families who missed out on Trent University’s annual March Break Open House, due to the untimely arrival of the winter’s biggest storm, are getting another chance to visit Trent. Visitors are invited to come and explore the campus, and see first-hand all that the University has to offer during a specially scheduled Spring Open House on Saturday, April 5, 2008 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

All prospective students interested in exploring Trent University and learning more about Trent’s academic programs and support services are invited to attend the Spring Open House with their families and friends. Dr. Roberta Bondar, Trent University Chancellor will once again be on hand at the event to personally welcome all guests along with Trent President Bonnie Patterson.

“We know that the winter storm on March 8 kept a lot of people from making the trip to Trent’s March Break Open House,” said Trent President Bonnie Patterson. “This specially scheduled Spring Open House will provide all those students with a second chance to visit our University, meet Dr. Bondar, and discover for themselves all of the truly wonderful things Trent has to offer.”

Dr. Bondar will make two opening addresses, one in Wenjack Theatre from 10 a.m. and another at Gzowski College Room 114 at 10:30 a.m.

Other activities planned for the Spring Open House include:

  • Sample lectures and various program-specific information sessions
  • Opportunities to explore the campus, including highlights such as residence, the library and the athletics complex
  • Special presentations throughout the day will help to inform students about various student services, involvement on campus, and athletics and recreation.

Throughout the day, various faculty, staff, and students will be on hand to help guide students in their exploration of Trent. Staff from admissions, financial aid and residence will also be present to answer your questions.
